The new Crown Commercial Services (CCS) agreement, Cloud Compute, will enable public and third sector organisations to purchase high volume cloud hosting solutions flexibly
Cloud Compute focuses on flexible (‘hyperscale’) compute environments, used for the development of new software applications or where large and complex data sets need to be modelled.
It will allow customers to rapidly scale up or down their usage as and when required, with longer call-off options and more flexibility.
The products offered through the new agreement are defined as Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS).
The following suppliers have been awarded places:
- Amazon Web Services EMEA SARL
- Fordway Solutions Ltd
- Frontier Technology
- Google Ireland Limited
- IBM UK Limited
- Oracle Corporation UK Ltd
- UKCloud Ltd
- UKFast.net Limited
As part of the tender process, bidders were asked to provide evidence of how they would support customers to achieve social value through their contracts whilst boosting sustainability and economic inequality.
The framework will run for four years and is available to the whole public and third sector.
