We’re on the G-Cloud

There’s no pun that hasn’t been done about the G-Cloud – so I’ll cut to the chase. We’ve been named as a G-Cloud supplier by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS).

If you’re new to the concept, the G-Cloud is a framework designed to simplify the purchasing of “cloud services” for public sector buyers.

We already have a track record in meeting the… exacting requirements of the public sector, providing hosting for the likes of the Cabinet Office, data.gov.uk and the NHS. By being part of G-Cloud 4 G-Cloud 5, it will be even easier for public sector buyers to access our expertise in secure, managed hosting – be it dedicated, cloud or a hybrid of both.

It also means that we can continue using their snazzy logo (above) on the rest of our publications.

All new servers will be delivered by default in YO26, our new datacentre in York. This means public sector buyers will benefit from 10GBps links to London as well as a completely modern datacentre that uses fresh air cooling. This reduces dramatically the amount of energy we use to cool servers and makes the best of use of our brilliant location in North Yorkshire. Oh, and dual-stacked IPv6 is provided as standard.

To buy Bytemark’s services through G-Cloud, visit the CCS CloudStore and search for Bytemark.
