Cloud Migration Services

No matter your digital maturity, our multi-cloud platform can help accelerate your journey to the cloud. Rehost applications with VMware, or build new digital services with OpenShift. It’s entirely up to you.

The Right Cloud for Every Workload

In this short two-minute video our CTO, Leighton James, explains how UKCloud can help public sector organisations accelerate their digital transformation projects by adopting a multi-cloud approach.

It’s much safer and cheaper to rehost legacy applications in an environment that mirrors their existing topology, say, by moving VMware workloads to VMware. And it’s these “quick wins” that are often overlooked. Start small, start today.

Uncompromising security and integrity

Your data is a national asset and needs to be treated as such.

Our government-grade platform comes with out-of-the-box access to key government networks including Janet, HSCN, PSN and RLI. All are capable of hosting above OFFICIAL workloads. Whilst our UK-based data centres ensure that your data never leaves the UK. Our multi-cloud platform gives you all the tools you need to move your most secure and sensitive systems to the cloud.

Practical, impartial advice

Our mission is simple. To help public sector organisations deliver better, cheaper services to UK citizens.

And as multi-cloud experts, we know there is no single cloud that is ideal for the diversity of requirements that public sector organisations have. So, whether it’s with our platform or somewhere else, we can help you break down your digital transformation into a series of clear, incremental steps.

Public Services Network (PSN)

Owned by the government, the PSN serves as a high-performance network for all public sector organisations. Helping increase interoperability amongst departments and reducing repeat work. 

At UKCloud, our native connectivity provides access to most central, local and devolved government organisations. Cleared to carry both Assured and Elevated workloads  now even your most sensitive systems can move to the cloud. 

To use this network, your organisation must have a PSN compliance certificate. 

Restricted LAN Interconnect (RLI)

RLI is a high-security network with pre-approved connection options for the defence community and industry partners.  

Available as part of our multi-cloud offering, defence organisations can quickly access the critical information they need to deliver new and existing services in the cloud. Not only will your data be hosted in our state-of-the-art facilities – but you’ll also benefit from direct access to one of the UK’s most secure networks. 

Connection to RLI is subject to vetting and approval from the MoD. 

Health and Social Care Network (HSCN)

HSCN is a high-speed data network dedicated to health and care – replacing the previously used N3 network. As with PSN, RLI, and Janet – this network was launched with the hope to improve interoperability amongst its incumbents. 

Built on the crown campus, UKCloud offers native access to HSCN – providing healthcare organisations with the opportunity to take applications with dependencies to this network and deliver them in the cloud. 

JANET

Janet – owned by Jisc – is a high-speed network for the UK research and education sector. Janet currently serves over 18 million users and is the most active National Research and Education Network in Europe – carrying 1.5 petabytes worth of data each year. 

Built on the Crown Campus, UKCloud offers direct access to the Janet network so the education industry can access the data and resources they need to deliver new and existing services in the cloud. 

Assured Official

The UKCloud Assured OFFICIAL cloud platform previously achieved CESG Pan Government Accreditation (PGA) and is PSN accredited to host OFFICIAL data (including OFFICIAL SENSITIVE) which is accessible via native connectivity to DDoS protected internet, PSN, HSCN and Janet networks dependent on relevant accreditation. You can also connect private connections, and the platform undergoes regular audits and CHECK tests.

Elevated Official

The UKCloud Elevated OFFICAL cloud platform previously achieved CESG Pan Government Accreditation (PGA) and is PSN accredited to host OFFICIAL data (including OFFICIAL SENSITIVE) which is accessible via native connectivity to PSN, RLI and other secure or/and encrypted government networks dependant on relevant accreditation.

You can also connect private connections, and the platform undergoes regular audits and CHECK tests. This isolated platform allows UK public sector organisations to create highly secure workloads in the cloud, whilst segregating data and compute functions into either the Assured or Elevated platforms to ensure data is secure.

Above Official

UKCloud offers uncompromising security and integrity.

As the only UK sovereign Strategic Cloud Provider with government-approved secure facilities and security-cleared staff, we bring the power of the cloud into the most secure and sensitive environments. Making it easy to connect and share information between security domains.

Your mission-critical systems operating at Tier 2 or SECRET require the highest levels of integrity and availability – and our platform is ready to deliver superior levels of resilience.
