GCI Provides Cost Savings

GCI have been awarded the G-Cloud Framework and have been selected to be registered on the UK Government G-Cloud Store. This new online marketplace enables local authorities, schools and healthcare providers to select Hosting and Cloud-based services from an approved list of suppliers.

Government and the public sector are under enormous pressure to reduce costs and avoid large capital expenditure pay-outs on IT hardware and Licensing. The new G-Cloud framework responds to this need by providing the flexibility for organisations to pay only for what is actually used, while reducing risk.

The collaboration between GCI and Microsoft across key Microsoft applications and platforms, including SharePoint, Exchange, Lync and Office 365, is enabling organisations to experience Microsoft enterprise software solutions over the WAN and in the cloud as if they were local.

GCI has deployed an Enterprise Grade Multi-Tenant virtualisation platform across two of its primary datacentres in Lincoln and Salford. The multi-tenant platform is built on a core of leading vendor technologies and operates on the leading hypervisor engine VMware vSphere 5. The platform is specifically designed to provide Enterprise IT services with guaranteed resources available to our clients at all times, thereby reducing risk and allowing business continuity.
