"UKCloud offered a cost-effective, virtualised environment that was all set up and ready to go."

What we do

Dedicated to helping the UK Public Sector, we deliver choice and flexibility through safe and trusted cloud technology. We are supporting the public sector to transform the delivery of IT through innovative and trusted multi-cloud platforms.

Making transformation happen because:

  • No one cloud fits all – our multi-cloud platform offers choice and flexibility.
  • We are built for the UK – our cloud platforms are all situated within the secure Government-grade Crown Hosting environment that we call Crown Campus.
  • We’ve delivered more than 200 public sector digital transformation projects.

Each cloud has unique characteristics that make it great for some things but sub-optimal for others. So that you don’t have to compromise, we deliver all the major cloud environments within our pioneering multi-cloud platform.

We work with organisations that deliver public services. Our multi-cloud platform helps them transform the communities they serve.


You’re transforming how you interact with citizens and businesses by delivering services online and to do this you need the right technologies and systems.

Cloud environments can underpin the deployment of the digital technologies you need to support transformation. They offer greater scalability and business continuity capabilities, along with greater flexibility and capacity.

As a local authority, you need to improve resident services, while spending cuts mean you also have to save money. Deploying new digital technologies hosted in the cloud will help you better respond to these challenges.

Learn more


New ways to deliver information services to the end user, such as the use of secure cloud, are urgently required. The old ways of working – with inflexible, expensive, slow-to-change contracts and infrastructure – are becoming a thing of the past.

Learn more


We recognise you’re required to deliver a better service for a lower budgetary spend. You need access to the very best data storage, analysis and collaborative technology to remain at the forefront of innovation and research.

Just like other public-facing organisations, you’re challenged with meeting an increased demand for service with ever decreasing budgets. New ways of working need to be adopted and new applications need to be deployed to meet these challenges.
