Scottish managed cloud services provider iomart Group PLC
(iomart) has won G-Cloud 11 approval. Glasgow, Scotland-based iomart was founded in 1998 and is considered a leading provider in the European cloud market. The company’s ISO accredited services leverage the Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft’s Azure platforms and extend to private and hybrid clouds, colocation, data center services, and domain registration. With eight data centers across the United Kingdom, iomart was in the news earlier this year for annual income in 2018 that reached the £100 million ($130 million) mark. G-Cloud 11 allows iomart to operate in support of the United Kingdom’s public sector.
G-Cloud is a UK government scheme that simplifies information technology procurement procedures for government agencies and other bodies. It is essentially a list of providers that the UK government has preapproved as being able to provide the security and infrastructure required to support government business. G-Cloud 11 is the latest iteration of the scheme and further helps the public sector simplify compliance issues and reduce costs. iomart is now able to provide up to 29 different cloud services to central government bodies, local authorities across the UK, and other organizations in healthcare and education. These services include Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS), Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), private and public cloud solutions, and other AWS and Microsoft cloud offerings.
"We have the people, skills, knowledge, technologies, infrastructure and partnerships to offer public sector organisations a one-stop shop for cloud strategy, implementation, security and management,” explained iomart’s UK Sales Director, Declan Sharpe. “Instead of having to deal with multiple suppliers, we offer a single point of access to a large portfolio of cloud services, producing a better experience and genuine economies of scale for any public sector body that chooses to work with us."Do you know of any other companies receiving G-Cloud approval?
