NaviSite Desktop, Storage and Infrastructure-as-a-Service Solutions Awarded a Place on UK Government's G-Cloud III Programme

LONDON--(Marketwired - Jun 27, 2013) - Today, NaviSite Europe Ltd., a premier provider of enterprise-class hosting, managed application, managed messaging and managed cloud services, has announced that three of its premier cloud solutions have been accepted onto the new Government G-Cloud III programme.

Local UK authorities, Government departments and other public sector organisations will now be able to purchase NaviCloud Dynamic Compute (infrastructure-as-a-service), NaviCloud® ONE (desktop-as-a-service), NaviCloud Intelligent Storage: Share and Vault (storage-as-a-service and backup-as-a-service) platforms through the Government's CloudStore.

The third framework iteration of G-Cloud was launched in May 2013 along with a new CloudStore, which has been redesigned to be intuitive and easier to use: The Government web portal now provides access to more than 700 suppliers and more than 7,000 services. In just over a year CloudStore has already seen 1,000 invoiced purchases and sales of over £18.2m.

NaviSite Europe Ltd. joined the G-Cloud programme last year supplying its NaviCloud® Dynamic Compute Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution to Government organisations. Following another successful application the services offered by NaviSite on G-Cloud has now extended to include NaviCloud® ONE Desktop as a Service solution, NaviCloud® Intelligent Storage Vault and NaviCloud® Intelligent Storage Share which will allow organisations to securely backup and share large files in the cloud.

"We aspire to build the most secure, robust and intelligent cloud platforms, so to receive this kind of recognition is a real affirmation that we are achieving our goals," said Sean McAvan, Managing Director, NaviSite Europe Ltd. "Millions of people in the U.K. rely on Government IT to provide critical services. It is very important that these services are delivered in a secure and robust manner, which also delivers value. We look forward to working together as a trusted partner to help Government organisations realise the benefits of scalable, flexible, low-cost cloud solutions."
