Helping Staffordshire County Council Via The Cloud
Award-winning, IaaS G-Cloud supplier, Memset, today announced it will be providing IL2 hosting to Staffordshire County Council, secured via the G-Cloud’s CloudStore.
The council had an immediate and short term requirement for secure, yet flexible, hosting to roll out one of its social care projects.
Sander Kristel, CIO for Staffordshire County Council, turned to the G-Cloud’s CloudStore to find a hosting partner capable of providing up to IL2 hosting, and said: “This is our first purchase via the G-Cloud and it all went very smoothly. It’s easy to evaluate suppliers and once we signed up with Memset on 2nd November we were live the same day. Our requirement was immediate and we needed a solution that was secure but flexible enough to facilitate a potentially short-term need. This is the way we should all procure IT services.”
“We're delighted that Staffordshire County Council has come to us for this project, making them our first local government G-Cloud win. It is likely to be a great example of cloud's cost-saving pay-as-you-use model,” said Kate Craig-Wood, MD of Memset.
