Next month sees THINK.Cloud For Digital Government, a G-Cloud show 24n's supporting. We spoke with one of the main Platinum Sponsors of the event, cloud hosting leader Memset, to find our what it has planned for attendees
Memset is a leader in the provision of high security, cost-effective utility Infrastructure-as-a-Service Cloud products to UK government, and all that we offer is backed by our enterprise-level, industry-leading performance and availability SLAs.
We’ve achieved accreditation to ISO:27001:2013 and to host on PSN Protected, while our services are purchasable via the Digital Marketplace, proving our services are secure for Official data. All government data is stored within UK boarders for data protection and sovereignty purposes, with industry-leading uptime guarantees and UK-based, BPSS or SC cleared support personnel.
Cost continues to be a major driver for public sector organisations moving to the cloud, but opting for an OpenStack solution like Memset’s Government Community Cloud can offer ICT buyers further reductions in price, increased agility and the ability to avoid vendor lock-in.
OpenStack can often be seen as a more favourable offering for government, as it offers both public and private deployments, we feel, as they can choose where their data resides, with sensitive data staying in the private side and data that isn't subject to regulations free to go to the public side. With HMRC and the European Commission emerging as early OpenStack adopters, the use of OpenStack is poised to grow elsewhere in the public sector.
We’re excited to be supporting this show again, having been involved in the previous four events. It’s a fantastic platform for anyone who works in government IT to get up to speed on the benefits and savings that cloud and digital technologies can provide to help meet your requirements in the face of reducing budgets.
Our public sector team will be on Stand 20 all-day and will be happy to answer any questions on how we can help with your department’s digital transformation, or to discuss the benefits that can be achieved by integrating OpenStack into your cloud ecosystem.
So come on by and let's show you how an OpenStack infrastructure will enable you to save money, deliver efficiency, work better and deliver best of breed cloud solutions.
