Cloud computing is set to become a radical change in the way that organisations use and pay for IT. Instead of hosting applications and data on an individual desktop computer, everything is hosted in the “cloud” – a collection of computers and servers accessed via the internet or a private network. Government is committed to the adoption of cloud computing and delivering computing resources to users as needed (an on-demand delivery model).
SBL’s Cloud Services
In addition to a newly developed comprehensive range of secure patch management solutions, SBL’s new Cloud Services include secure Cloud-based Backup, Archive and Recovery and Collaboration tools. SBL’s portfolio of Cloud Services are designed to accommodate security and assurance concerns inherent within Public Sector Cloud adoption strategies via the utilisation of firstly; a UK Secure Facility Hosting Environment (Safe Harbour), and secondly SBL’s High Security and Award Winning DOBUS Platform employed as a central delivery mechanism to Public Sector and Private Networks.
The G-Cloud Programme is a cross government initiative focused on introducing Cloud ICT services into government departments, local authorities and the wider public sector. With the launch of G-Cloud 2 on 26th October, SBL have significantly expanded our G-Cloud portfolio to a total of 17 different Cloud Services. Both through a series of technology pilots, and through a project to connect a new version of the DOBUS platform to the GSi (PSN – Public Sector Network), SBL plan to deliver a number of secure Cloud services across the Public Sector through the medium of the G-Cloud initiative. SBL’s innovations in Cloud Services will support the Government Cloud Strategy to transform the public sector ICT estate into one that is agile, cost effective and environmentally sustainable.
