Health Cloud

Where ready-made digital health solutions meet our government-grade infrastructure. Kick-start your digital transformation with health cloud.

Realise the potential of patient data

Health cloud doesn’t represent the efforts of a single company or product. It’s not a thing you can buy. It’s a collaborative approach between UK health providers and UKCloud to help hospitals and clinicians extract increasing value from their data.

Our professional services team is here to help you accelerate your journey to the cloud – offering expert advice on everything from IaaS to SaaS. There’s an ocean of opportunity for health organisations when it comes to multi-cloud. We’re here to make sense from all the noise.

A platform built for the health industry

From IaaS to SaaS, health cloud covers everything from platforms to smart hospitals – but it’s the underlying infrastructure that makes it all tick.

The UKCloud platform overs native connectivity to HSCN and is cleared to host your most secure and sensitive data. A platform that improves the fluidity and interoperability of key systems so you can incorporate next-gen technologies as part of your digital transformation.

A collaborative approach to patient care

Data sits at the heart of any successful transformation project. Yet 57.6% of health organisations store data in formats that make it increasingly difficult to extract any value.

Not only can our specialist health team walk you through the ins and out of multi-cloud – and how a successful transformation project will utilise a combination of cloud-based services – but they can also help health organisations to garner insights from their structured and unstructured data.

From cloud to data strategy – we’ve got your back.

Practical, impartial advice

“It’s not about a partner who will come in and hard sell, it’s about someone who will come in and support you to take things forward and that’s what I felt with the team at UKCloud.”


Mandy Griffin, CIO, Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust

Native access to the Health and Social Care Network (HSCN)

The right platform for every workload

Our multi-cloud has something to offer for everyone. Rehost enterprise systems with VMware, or deploy new, cloud-native solutions with open source. No matter your digital maturity, our security-cleared staff are here to help.

Refactor, rearchitect or rebuild legacy applications with UKCloud for Red Hat OpenShift.

We offer a secure, private deployment of Red Hat’s OpenShift container platform so you can develop and deploy your applications with government-grade assurance. Allowing your developers to divorce themselves from physical hardware and package applications so they can be deployed anytime, anywhere.

Migrate legacy workloads to the cloud

Rehosting legacy workloads in the cloud is arguably the most important step when it comes to a sustainable digital transformation. By removing the burden of having to update and maintain your own data centre, health organisations can start to redistribute capital and resource to focus on longer-term, more strategic initiatives.

For health organisations who have made a significant investment in VMware, we offer a secure, cloud-enabled alternative so you can take your first steps to the cloud using tried and trusted technology.

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.
