Arcus Global extends presence on UK Government G-Cloud Framework
Cambridge based SME brings flexibility, security and scalability of Amazon Web Services to UK public sector organisations.
CAMBRIDGE – May 07, 2013 –Arcus Global, the leader in delivering cloud computing to the public sector, today announces that it has extended its presence on the UK government’s G-Cloud III framework. With this announcement UK public sector organisations can procure Amazon Web Services cloud technologies via Arcus Global and take advantage of the flexibility, scalability and cost savings that the cloud offers.
As the first Amazon Web Services Certified UK Government Reseller, Arcus Global has the support of Amazon Web Services to help public sector customers of all sizes design, architect, migrate and build new applications on AWS. By working closely with Amazon Web Services, Arcus has developed a competency in helping UK public sector organisations move to the cloud.
Denis Kaminskiy, Managing Director of Arcus Global said of the announcement, “We are excited to already be part of the UK government’s G-Cloud framework and at the forefront of moving the UK’s public sector organisations to a flexible IT model. From day one we have built the Arcus Global business to focus on the cloud and have chosen to partner closely with the worldwide leader in cloud computing technologies, Amazon Web Services.’
‘Giving UK public sector organisations the opportunity to procure Amazon Web Services technologies, via the G-Cloud framework, allows them to focus their resources on doing what they do best, which is delivering new services and value to the citizens of the UK, and not on maintaining and running technology infrastructure.”
Arcus Global is already working with many Public Sector organisations in the UK to help them take advantage of the flexibility, scalability and cost savings of cloud computing. Some of those that have already taken advantage of Arcus’ services include Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, Tandridge District Council, Leicestershire and Rutland Probation Trust, English Heritage and Buckinghamshire County Council.
As part of its commitment to become ‘infrastructure free’ Buckinghamshire County Council is currently in the process of piloting the migration of locally run applications to Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) technologies. AWS was chosen for the general usage stream of the pilot because of its market leading position and alignment with the Council’s security requirements for the majority of its applications. Buckinghamshire County Council is looking forward to IaaS technologies dramatically reducing the costs and increasing the flexibility of the services it runs.
