Public Sector Customers


DataCentred are on the G Cloud framework which means public sector customers can purchase cloud services at lower costs with reduced procurement times. We offer free trials to public sector organisations under the G Cloud terms and conditions.

  • How does it work?

    Simply register using the self-service portal above to begin using our OpenStack public cloud.

  • I have a discount code. How do I use it?

    If you have a discount code, you will be asked to enter it when you provide your credit card details. Your discount or free period will be automatically applied.

  • What protection do I have?

    We put a cap on trial cloud services to avoid any nasty billing surprises during your trial period. These limits are applied to all trials as a safety precaution.

  • What do I do if I want to increase the resource quotas of my cloud service?

    We can increase or decrease quotas as you require. Please refer to our cloud pricing information, then simply raise a support ticket using our self-service portal.

  • How will I be charged?

    We will only charge you for the services and resources you use. If you don’t use anything, you don’t pay anything.

    You can check out our cloud pricing here. You’ll be billed monthly from the date of your registration.
