We are pleased to announce that zsah (parent company of CoolHarbour) is now part of the Government’s G-Cloud framework.
As zsah’s business and influence has grown in the Technology industry so has the demand for its services through a variety of different platforms and partners. Due to the increasing demand and growing success of the business it was only a matter of time till zsah became a part of the Government’s G-Cloud framework.
What exactly is the G-Cloud?
The G-Cloud is a government framework designed for public bodies in the United Kingdom to purchase Cloud focused IT services from reputable and well established suppliers. As a premium Managed service provider zsah is on the G-Cloud framework which is managed by the Government Procurement Service.
There are a number of facets to the delivery of cloud services that are available on the G-Cloud:
– Software as a service (SaaS) – where the entire infrastructure and applications are hosted and run by the vendor
– Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) – providing equipment required to run cloud applications
– Platform as a service (PaaS)–providing equipment, operating systems and other software components needed to run applications in the cloud
– Specialist cloud services – the specialist services related to cloud provision.
Due to cloud computing’s unprecedented growth more and more businesses are adopting the technology and this has created a massive change in the way businesses approach and operate their IT requirements. Having identified the opportunity that cloud computing provides in providing greater economic control, sustainability and flexibility the Government has setup G-Cloud in order to provide Partners, local authorities and government departments access to a range of Cloud providers. This is motivated by the fact that the government has ambitions of creating a fundamental change in the way that the public sector procures and operates Information and Communication Technology.
zsah – Managed Technology Services on the G-Cloud
We encourage our customers to buy British, not only because of our high quality cloud offerings but also because of the fact that we are a purely British company founded in the United Kingdom with no subsidiaries or parent companies based outside of the UK. This puts zsah in a unique position over many of the big players in the cloud industry such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Rackspace as these are all companies originated in the United States. This means any company that wants to keep its data secure and private can do so. American companies are unable to guarantee this due to the American Patriot Act which imposes its rules upon all US companies and means their data and their customers data is available to the US government on demand. Essentially this can jeopardise a company that may be required to follow strict Data protection requirements or a company that simply wishes to maintain the highest levels of data security and confidentiality on behalf of their customers and employees.
