UK-based VIRTUS Data Centres bags G-Cloud 9 status

26 May 2017 | James Pearce

UK-based VIRTUS Data Centres has been awarded supplier status with the Crown Commercial Services, as part of the G-Cloud 9 initiative.

The new status will allow VIRTUS to expand its access to managed cloud infrastructure service (VMCCI) to governmental bodies, education organisations, the UK emergency services, and defence department.

Those publicly-funded bodies will now be able to access a wider array of private and public cloud services offered within VIRTUS’s data centre portfolio.

The CCS works with public sector departments and organisations across the procurement and delivery of services.

Darren Watkins, managing director, VIRTUS Data Centres, said "Digital transformation and cloud migration are on the agenda of almost every organisation, public or private, which is driving the need for high quality, innovative, efficient data centre space. 

"Our data centres, where the cloud lives, are in high demand by any organisation that wants to improve interconnectivity between people, applications and data. We are delighted to provide easier, more efficient access to the public sector without the need for long, complicated drawn out tender processes. We bring cost-savings and efficiency through agile, flexible and connected services."
