London, June 15 2021: Frontier Technology Limited, a leading IT infrastructure, and cloud solutions provider focused on providing data security and management solutions, announced that it has been named as a supplier on Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) Cloud Compute framework, a new £750m government commercial vehicle for hyperscale cloud services, becoming one of only nine organisations to do so. Crown Commercial Service has launched Cloud Compute to complement G-Cloud, which has shorter call-off terms and a wider pool of suppliers able to offer more diverse services.
Crown Commercial Service supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. In 2019/20, CCS helped the public sector to achieve commercial benefits worth over £1bn – supporting world-class public services that offer best value for taxpayers.
“We are proud to be recognised as one of the nine suppliers on the Cloud Compute Framework,” said Edwin Wong, Managing Director, Frontier Technology. “Gaining a place on the Framework is an opportunity for us to demonstrate our innovative approach in many areas where Frontier can help the UK’s public sector. Our portfolio includes a magnitude of various hyperscale cloud services that address a wide range of customer needs and offer greater flexibility. We bring expertise from strategy through to delivery on-board and have extensive hands-on experience of helping to drive innovation and cost control through the successful delivery of hyperscale cloud services.”
The purpose of this Framework Agreement is to put in place a route for UK public sector organisations to buy their Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service requirements directly from public cloud platforms. Frontier Technology established its ability in various qualifying factors to show how its cloud service offerings boost public sector organisations, such as:
- Public Cloud: on-demand self-service; broad network access; resource pooling; measured service
- Rapid Elasticity
- Rapid Scalability
- Engaging Services (providing assisted or self-service service requests
- Social values (ISO 14001, sourcing local suppliers, data centres with ‘green’ credentials)
