Our public cloud is entirely UK-owned and UK-operated, enabling you to meet data sovereignty, data residency and data compliance requirements. Plus, your digital adoption journey can be fully supported by the UK DevOps team who build and maintain our cloud.
DataCentred can support both local and central government agencies in your drive towards digital adoption. Our on-demand cloud infrastructure is entirely based on open source technologies, including OpenStack and Ceph – helping you realise the open source element of your digital adoption journey.
These open source technologies have been selected because of what they bring to the capability of the DataCentred platform and its continued development. They are supported by some of the most mature open source communities and with the greatest commercial support behind them – which directly translates into their rapid technological innovation and the longevity of these solutions for their users.
It also means that we are able to price our solutions extremely competitively, on a level playing field, we think they win out every time.
Our UK-owned and operated data centre based in Manchester, one of the UK’s most vibrant digital hubs, meets key performance, data sovereignty, cyber security and accreditation requirements. But our innovative approach isn’t limited to our technology – we also seek to build innovative relationships with our partners.
We’ve already undertaken exciting projects with public sector organisations in the North West. We believe we offer compelling digital services, for local and regional government and national agencies.
