iomart Group is offering an expanded range of cloud and colocation hosting services to the UK public sector after being selected for G-Cloud 4, the fourth iteration of the pre-approved group of Cloud ICT suppliers to the UK government.
iomart has added its expertise in the bespoke provisioning of private and hybrid cloud solutions to the CloudStore catalogue, as well as offering data centre and colocation services. The new services can be found under the sections for Infrastructure As A Service (IaaS); Platform As A Service (PaaS); and Software As A Service (SaaS), for which iomart was accredited earlier this year when it was selected for G Cloud iii.
"In addition, we have also been accredited for data centre and colocation services, ensuring that we can offer prospective public sector clients the opportunity to utilise our nationwide estate of eight data centre locations and pan UK fibre network. This is particularly important as more and more government organisations are seeking IT outsourcing disaster recovery and off-site storage solutions with trusted suppliers."
iomart's existing public sector clients include one of the UK's biggest housing associations, as well as a range of councils and education providers. The company specialises in the delivery and management of bespoke mission-critical private and hybrid cloud and managed IT infrastructures, as well as providing cloud services such as storage, backup and security solutions.
Cloud computing has brought about a step change in the economics and sustainability of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Government is committed to the adoption of cloud computing and delivering computing resources. The G-Cloud is an iterative programme of work to achieve this which will deliver fundamental changes in the way the public sector procures and operates ICT. The G-Cloud strategy itself is built upon government ensuring that it can:
• Achieve large, cross-government economies of scale
The companies join previously announced SunGard Availability Services in a growing ecosystem of service providers that will offer such services for VMware vSphere.
