Databarracks Awarded

Databarracks is pleased to confirm that it has been accepted as a supplier for G-Cloud iii, the Government’s framework for cloud computing services.

As a provider on the G-Cloud framework, Databarracks is able to supply Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and specialist cloud services to the public sector. Having already provided services on the G-Cloud ii framework since October 2012, Databarracks has expanded its services to include DRaaS or ‘Disaster Recovery as a Service’ – now available on the CloudStore.

“We have always been a firm believer in what the G-Cloud framework stands for,” said Peter Groucutt, Managing Director at Databarracks. “Providing the public sector with access to cloud services with guarantees of the highest standards of security is hugely important.”

“G-Cloud has enabled the public sector to cut through some of the red tape that has previously restricted its access to the newest and most innovative cloud services. The simplified process makes it easier for suppliers to provide these services, which in turn gives the public sector organisations far greater choice,” said Groucutt.

G-Cloud iii is expected to spark an increase in sales in the coming months, with the latest figures from the Cabinet Office already reporting a 50 per cent increase in G-Cloud sales during March 2013. These figures are set to rise again with awareness growing as to how easy and affordable it is to transform organisations using services available on the CloudStore.

“It is still early days for the program. This is a giant shift in how the public sector consumes its IT. Early progress was slow but we can really see momentum growing in the sales figures released each month. This definitely corresponds with the message we are receiving from the larger organisations – so we are pleased to be a part of the next step for G-Cloud,” concluded Groucutt.
