Public Cloud

Public Cloud

Public Cloud IaaS is aimed at all public agencies that want to try out the quality of services G-Cloud offers by enjoying a couple of months free access to the specific G-Cloud services online.

The resources available via the public cloud are in the form of off-the-shelf, ready-made virtual machines which are made available exclusively to the relevant public agency via easy-to-use, user-friendly self service provisioning.

The Public Cloud service is an opportunity for users to familiarize themselves with the G-Cloud’s top class services. Due to the large number of physical machines which are available for virtual servers on the public cloud, within a very short time only public agencies can commit and make dynamic use of infrastructure provided to them depending on their needs.
