Infrastructure as a Service

UKCloud Health offers a choice of cloud hosting technologies designed to reflect the wide variety of traditional ‘Enterprise’ systems and modern ‘Cloud Native’ applications. Our secure, flexible and cost-effective IaaS services provide a single platform which facilitates interoperability between different systems and applications.

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) – UKCloud Health are market leaders in the provision of assured IaaS cloud solutions to the UK Public Sector.

We have made significant investment in designing IaaS solutions tailored to the UK Public Sector – solutions which are:

  • Accredited and certified for OFFICIAL and OFFICIAL SENSITIVE data (formerly IL0-IL4)
  • Available via the Digital Marketplace on the G-Cloud framework
  • Scalable and resilient with connectivity to the Internet, PSN, N3 and Janet
  • Hosted in highly-secure and highly-resilient UK data centres (your data never leaves the UK)

Our IaaS solutions have been designed to align with NIST definition of IaaS and so offer:

  • On-demand self-service
  • Broad network access (connectivity options)
  • Resource pooling
  • Rapid elasticity or expansion
  • Measured service

The NIST definition of IaaS:
The capability provided to the consumer is to provision processing, storage, networks, and other fundamental computing resources where the consumer is able to deploy and run arbitrary software, which can include operating systems and applications. The consumer does not manage or control the underlying cloud infrastructure but has control over operating systems, storage, deployed applications, and possibly limited control of select networking components (e.g., host firewalls).
