DATACENTRE MODERNISATION

Use multi-cloud to replace traditional inefficient datacentres with a cost-effective, flexible and secure alternative

Modern Datacentre Solutions

Traditional datacentres are inefficient and inflexible. Yet, they are a very common feature across the Defence and National Security community – with systems designed to operate within silos. Few of these computer rooms and datacentres benefit from economy of scale – hence they are susceptible to capacity constraints, resilience issues (from floods to air conditioning) and are rarely energy efficient.

UKCloudX is a prominent provider within the Government’s Crown Campus – purpose built, specialist and accredited datacentre facilities that support even the most secure and mission critical systems. We deliver public and private cloud environments that deliver better value and innovation, without compromise. Free yourself from the cost and agility constraints without compromising on security and assurance.

Watch the video to hear our CTO, Leighton James, discuss migrating traditional data centre environments to multi-cloud.

  • Reduce your capital expenditure (CAPEX)

    Your IT budget is increasingly constrained, so how can you avoid the capex cost spiral? Let us show you how.

    – Avoid refresh projects by substituting your datacentre with cloud.

    – Tap into cloud capacity to avoid expanding your on-premises environment.

    – Use cloud as a flexible and cost-effective foundation for your very next project.

    These are just some of the ways cloud can help you do more with less. Learn how hundreds of public sector projects benefit from true commercial flexibility with no lock-in.

    Host pre-cloud applications

    Not everyone can abandon the old and focus on the new; our platform uses familiar technologies so you can harness your existing capabilities.

    – Different clouds for different workloads; multi-cloud gives you new options.

    – Bring together cloud and non-cloud in the government-grade Crown Campus.

    – Reduce your lock-in risk of proprietary vendors and incumbent providers.

    Up-to 80% of your IT resources are keeping the lights on. Learn how to reduce waste and inefficiency by modernising as well as transforming

    Disaggregate hosting contracts

    Traditional IT outsourcing locked you in to one-size-fits-all. Learn how the plurality of cloud delivers competition through the ability to lower costs, innovation and value-for-money

    – Facing penalties for late exit; multi-cloud accelerates your transition.

    – Move into the provider neutral Crown Campus to keep control of your IT.

    – We focus on hosting, so you can focus on your outcomes.

    – Extend your contract or take on a risky transformation? Don’t compromise; learn how to take small steps that make a big difference.

    Manage risks to service availability

    It’s a real challenge to keep pace with technology. Our platforms are inherently ‘ever-green’ so you can avoid the cost and distraction of refresh programmes.

    – Can you afford to refresh your infrastructure every three years?

    – Do you have the skills to adopt new technologies?

    – What are the consequences of a failure on service availability?

    At UKCloud, we entirely focus on ensuring you have an up-to-date platform which reduces the risks, costs and distractions to your mission.

    Support changing business demands

    Whether you have a purpose-built data centre or a computer cupboard; capacity issues cost you time and money. UKCloud can help:

    – Move seldom used data to the cloud to free-up capacity

    – Use the cloud for unpredictable Test & Development environments

    – Migrate from on-premises to the cloud for elasticity and scale

    – Elastic scaleability is one of the biggest benefits of cloud.

    Learn how to kill two birds with one stone by using cloud to address your capacity challenges.

    “Our online marketplace, hosted on UKCloud's assured, resilient platform, is delivering the efficiency benefits we'd hoped for. Our contracting process is now an order of magnitude easier for everyone to use.”

    Project Manager, Dstl
