What we do
UKCloud have developed a range of services that are designed specifically for the UK Public Sector, the combination of consumption-based pricing and on-demand resources can significantly improve inefficiencies and time to release.
Our services are easy to adopt, easy to use and easy to leave to ensure that our customers remain in complete control with minimum risk.
We were one of the first G-Cloud providers to achieve Pan Government Accreditation (PGA) up to Elevated OFFICIAL, and our services continue to achieve formal UK Government accreditation which make them suitable for all data at OFFICIAL (including OFFICIAL-SENSITIVE). UKCloud services are connected to government networks including the Public Services Network (PSN), the N3 health network, Janet the research and education network and others.
All our services are hosted in either (or both) of our highly-resilient, UK data centres and benefit from QinetiQ’s Protective Monitoring solution (security domain dependent).
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) – UKCloud are market leaders in the provision of assured IaaS cloud solutions to the UK Public Sector. We have made significant investment in designing IaaS solutions tailored to the UK Public Sector – solutions which are:
- Accredited and certified for OFFICIAL and OFFICIAL SENSITIVE data (formerly IL0-IL4)
- Available via the Digital Marketplace on the G-Cloud framework
- Scalable and resilient with connectivity to the Internet, PSN, N3, RLI and Janet
- Hosted in highly-secure and highly-resilient UK data centres (your data never leaves the UK)
The NIST definition of IaaS:
The capability provided to the consumer is to provision processing, storage, networks, and other fundamental computing resources where the consumer is able to deploy and run arbitrary software, which can include operating systems and applications. The consumer does not manage or control the underlying cloud infrastructure but has control over operating systems, storage, deployed applications, and possibly limited control of select networking components (e.g., host firewalls).
