C24 Ltd Awarded G-Cloud 5 Supplier Status

Birmingham, West Midlands, 04th June 2014 – C24 Ltd is pleased to announce that it has achieved supplier status on the G-Cloud 5 Framework for providing Specialist Cloud Services. We now offer Storage as a Service (StaaS) on the framework which can be delivered via the two C24 Tier IV data centres or via on premise delivery. The UK Government G-Cloud 5 framework enables the rapid sourcing and deployment of secure, competitively priced cloud services to over 30,000 organisations in the UK public sector.

David Ricketts, Head of Marketing commented “We are again delighted to have achieved supplier status. The demand for our private cloud solutions has increased significantly over the last 12 months and we are pleased to offer one part through this framework. As expected there are many organisations on the framework but I believe that we have a very unique proposition that is built especially for the challenges faced by the public sector.

“Our storage as a service offering gives public sector organisations the ability to tap into a unique cloud based model giving them access to enterprise storage solutions at a cost per GB per month model. Allowing them to address the headaches of exponential data growth and regulatory compliance” continued Ricketts.

About G-Cloud

The G-Cloud Programme is a cross government initiative, originally led by Andy Nelson (Ministry of Justice) supported by Denise McDonagh (Home Office) under the direction of the Chief Information Officer Delivery Board as part of the Government ICT Strategy.

The initial focus is on introducing cloud ICT services into government departments, local authorities and the wider public sector. In order to do this they have undertaken an OJEU compliant framework called G-Cloud. These services can then be reviewed through the CloudStore.

The responsibility for G-Cloud has now been successfully passed to the Government Digital Service (GDS).
