Government announces Brightsolid as GCloud 10 supplier
Brightsolid, the Scottish co-location and cloud solutions company, has been announced as an approved GCloud 10 supplier by the UK Government.
As of today (2 July), the technology firm will provide its full range of cloud solutions to support government organisations in Scotland in their migration to the cloud.
Brightsolid will offer clients enterprise, private and public cloud solutions through the framework, working collaboratively with them to meet their IT needs. The firm will showcase hybrid cloud as a simpler solution, providing organisations with flexibility and agility throughout the transition, under the streamlined GCloud10 procurement process.
Vicky Glynn, product manager at Brightsolid, said: “GCloud10 has presented us with a fantastic opportunity to provide a greater range of cloud services to our government clients, with our enterprise, private and public cloud solutions now available through the new framework.
“Our Scottish-based teams can support workload migrations onto the public cloud such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure, or we can retain the client’s data on our shared or private clouds.”
Malcolm Smith, chief sales officer at Brightsolid, said: “What’s great about this, is that it complements our position on the Scottish hosting framework, so we can provide a full suite of services for clients who need a mix of on-premise, co-located and varied cloud solutions.
“We have significant experience in supporting government organisations with digital transformation and have worked with some of the largest councils in the country. Our focus will be to provide a consultative approach, delivering cost appropriate and future-proof cloud solutions at a much quicker rate for clients, ensuring they can rapidly realise the benefits of cloud.”
