Public cloud services

Helping your business make the move to the cloud

Public cloud services that work for your business

Enterprises are accessing the public cloud increasingly as an essential part of their IT operations where speed, flexibility and low costs are essential. Public clouds offer easy, speedy access to IT resources as you need them and when you need them, reducing the cost and burden of ongoing hardware and datacentre management.

We deliver multiple cloud offerings to help you get the most appropriate cloud solution, supported by tools, services and connectivity. This means that whatever cloud journey your business is taking, we can support you along that path, reducing complexity and risk.

A cloud that is simple to connect, consume and operate

Public cloud is perfect for enterprises starting out on the cloud journey or for companies who need to adopt a flexible and cost-efficient platform for public workload sharing. It’s ideal for businesses such as retail and online organisations looking for high availability production workloads and easy access or alternatively for IT professionals to deliver quick and scalable test or development environments.

We can help you find the right mix of clouds to suit your business, your people and your applications. Whether it’s providing a secure, compliant and highly performant private cloud, delivering effective public cloud and cloud connectivity on its own or as part of a multi-cloud solution, we extend your company's network, and we provide you with expert support. Maximise the business outcomes of your public cloud service with us.

We help enhance your public cloud strategy by:

  • Connecting you to all the major public clouds securely and with guaranteed high performance with our cloud connect service
