Description

UKCloud is a UK company founded in 2011. It has multiple UK data centres, employs UK-based staff and is UK accredited.

We were one of the first G-Cloud providers to achieve Pan Government Accreditation (PGA) up to IL3, and our services continue to achieve formal UK Government Accreditations which make them suitable for all data at OFFICIAL (including OFFICIAL-SENSITIVE).

We provide an assured community cloud designed specifically for the UK Public Sector, delivering IaaSPaaS and SaaS.

We are well-established and have been successful, achieving significant growth and receiving a number of awards and accolades ― Gartner Cool VendorDigital Leaders 100 and Cloud Provider Innovation of the Year award at the UK IT Industry Awards 2014 in the past year alone.

Our industry-leading services are built on the unique and cutting-edge technologies and services of the UKCloud Cloud Alliance — QinetiQ, VMware, Cisco, EMC and Ark Data Centres — and offer the best price and performance in class. The UKCloud Cloud Alliance drives innovation and product development, helping us to keep improving our offering to meet the needs of the UK public sector.

Our Tier 3 data centres provided by Ark Data Centres set the benchmark for low-carbon facilities, providing a greener, smarter cloud. Our data centres are based in Corsham and Farnborough with 100km of physical separation. They’re connected with resilient dark fibre enabling synchronous replication, and support disaster recovery and high availability.

With UKCloud there are no startup costs and no minimum contract, and you pay only for what you use. It’s an easy, predictable cost model. We also stand by our contractual obligation to help move applications and data off our services as required.
