Secure and affordable cloud for the UK public sector
Vodafone Flexible Computing for Government is an ‘on-demand’ flexible and scalable multi-tenant public cloud service, but with the added security and assurance of a platform approved to hold Protectively Marked Information at ‘Restricted’ status. Available under the G-Cloud and PSN procurement frameworks, you can consume the service in line with the Government’s mandated ‘Cloud First’ policy.
Giving you the flexibility and computing power you need
Vodafone Flexible Computing for Government is a cloud-based solution enabling you to scale your resources up and down on demand, as per your organisational requirements – only paying for what you use, when you use it.
It is ideal for:
- Projects with no long term commitment (e.g. test and development)
- Small infrastructure projects that don’t justify the cost of a dedicated platform
- Unknown infrastructure requirements where scalability and additional processing power may be required
- Short-term IT needs (e.g. applications for one-off events)
- Complex hybrid solutions combined with Private Cloud and Co-Location services.
