AltoStack is now an official supplier for the government G-Cloud scheme, meaning our cloud hosting and cloud support services are trusted and reliable enough to be utilised by local authorities and public sector bodies.
For those of you that are not familiar with G-Cloud (AKA The Government Cloud), it’s the name of a government programme that’s trying to redefine how the public sector procures and operates Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Part of this initiative is to create a portal or hub, known as The Digital Marketplace, which ICT companies can apply to be a part of. The government only allow trusted suppliers to be part of The Digital Marketplace.
Once a business is accepted, they are added to the list of suppliers, creating what is effectively a virtual catalogue where the public sector can browse for their ICT solutions. There are several categories to browse through, and these include:
We are listed to offer public sector bodies cloud hosting and support services. The scheme works by allowing public sector bodies to purchase standardised services from approved suppliers. This can drive down costs because it rules out signing up to a variety of contracts with differing terms and conditions.
We are proud to be among the approved organisations on G-Cloud and very pleased to support the UK Government’s initiative to encourage cloud-based systems in public bodies. To find out more about G-Cloud and to take a look at the Digital Marketplace, you can follow this link.
At AltoStack, our mission is to help organisations accelerate their time to value from the cloud by designing, building, and optimising their infrastructures in the public cloud. We are a team of DevOps fanatics and a core part of our work is helping organisations leverage the cloud to increase the speed and success of cultural transformation.
We help our customers to use public cloud securely and professionally throughout their cloud journey. We work with our customers to define their public cloud strategy and governance model, build secure core infrastructure, enable DevOps teams and migrate data centers to the cloud — while taking care of the entire public cloud environment by our 24/7 Managed Services.
AltoStack is an AWS Consulting Partner and works with other leading public cloud providers and technology companies such as Atlassian, HashiCorp, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure.
