Claims to be one of the first
Skyscape Cloud Services has said that it is one of the first government G-Cloud suppliers to complete the design review for its IL3 and IL2 service designs.
The company- a UK sovereign SME, which delivers a range of cloud services specifically designed for the UK Public Sector – claims that this move now means it’ll be able to progress onto the next stage towards achieving full accreditation.
It has said it will launch a total of seventeen Compute-as-a-Service, Storage-as-a-Service and Software-as-a-Service products at differing levels, which will help transform IT services into a “lean, elastic, assured, green utility” by providing an on-demand assured cloud computing service.
Simon Hansford, Skyscape’s Chief Technology Officer, said “We are absolutely delighted to have reached this very important milestone.
“It has been a real team effort, and is a testament to the hard work, dedication and commitment of all. CESG, the G-Cloud Programme and the Skyscape Cloud Alliance partners have really pulled together to achieve this milestone in record time. There is still more work to do, but we are very proud that Skyscape is on track to be one of the first G-Cloud suppliers to offer IL3 services with CESG approved pan government accreditation”.
Denise McDonagh, Programme Director for G-Cloud, said “It is great news to hear that G-Cloud suppliers are now advancing the pan-government accreditation process. This is a tangible proof that agile, flexible and low cost cloud services can also be highly secure and capable of hosting restricted data.
“I very much hope that this achievement will act as strong encouragement to other suppliers to work with government to deliver more secure cloud based services, and to the UK public sector to buy those services so that together we can transform the way that government consumes and transacts IT. The ultimate beneficiaries will be UK citizens and tax payers”.
