Build, buy or both; cloud services with many benefits.
Pioneer innovative ways of working
We recognise that not everything can be built for the cloud. You need to carry forward your existing skills and applications whilst you adopt more innovative solutions. That’s why UKCloudX supports a wide variety of traditional and innovative use-cases.
Solutions that you can build and operate yourself, buy through our community of solution providers, or a combination of both.
We keep our nation safe and help Defence, Intelligence, Security, and Law Enforcement agencies in the UK to:
Innovate through experimentation
Drive new insights through secure collaboration
Drive cohesion through more effective and efficient IT services.
Solve complex and sensitive challenge.
Transform the mission by turning user needs into deliverables at scale.
Deliver critical systems within our UK sovereign platform, adjacent to Crown Hosting with security cleared staff
The five characteristics that make a ‘cloud’
UKCloudX multi-cloud services benefit from the five essential characteristics, as per NIST, that make a ‘cloud’:
Elasticity – a truly dynamic platform that can scale to support the most complex and demanding of Defence and National Security workloads that can be scaled automatically or manually
Self-service – complete autonomy to provision, change and manage your ‘virtual datacentre’ via the UKCloudX Portal or using our fully documented API
Measured usage – easy to understand consumption-based pricing from just 7p per VM per hour along with other commercial options that are more capex-like (e.g. fixed and predictable)
Broad networking – connect via existing government secure networks, or bring your own dedicated circuits (we can host the cryptos) or use high grade encryption over commodity networks such as the Internet
Resource pooling – securely share compute, storage and network infrastructure within your trusted community to benefit from the many economies of scale.
