Centerprise International launches a new UK Cloud computing offering bolstered by Hewlett Packard Enterprise and CloudSigma.
- Centerprise, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and CloudSigma collaboration offers customers a secure and simple Cloud operating model, with the freedom to choose where workloads are hosted.
- Long-standing partnerships within MOD and the wider public sector stand to benefit from Centerprise CiCloud.
Centerprise today announces CiCloud, its Cloud computing platform built on the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform with CloudSigma, using best-in-class infrastructure and tools to provide organisations with differentiated Cloud technology. Customers can provision Public Cloud, Hybrid Cloud and Virtual Private Cloud solutions using familiar tools. CiCloud is physically located in Ark Data Centres which provides a secure, simple and sustainable foundation for Cloud adoption with scalable capabilities for XaaS. By choosing CiCloud, customers can accelerate their Cloud journeys and take advantage of increased operational efficiencies without compromise.
This is a timely launch that can also help promote UK economic growth when it is most needed. CiCloud can offer the same user experience and benefits, whether customers opt to retain workloads on-premises or move them to the Centerprise Public Cloud located in Ark Data Centres. This approach makes the benefits of Hybrid Cloud accessible to all organisations.
"CiCloud provides a secure UK cloud capability built on open standards that allows organisations to deploy digital services quickly," added Marc Waters, senior vice president and managing director UKIMESA, Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
"The HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform is the foundation of the solution and enables rapid time to value, service innovation and alignment of cost to growth. This is another example of our growing UK service provider ecosystem offering a compelling 'cloud first' solution, with data sovereignty assured."
"The unique fully managed Cloud platform of CloudSigma drives fast hybrid and multi cloud adoption for immediate customer value. Our platform is built to provide world class quality, low upfront costs and execution risk for IT service providers who want to stand out among the hyperscalers." Robert Jenkins explains, Co-Founder and CEO of CloudSigma
Keeping it simple
CiCloud simplifies the Cloud journey by using familiar provisioning toolsets and an open standards architecture. This eases the burden on IT resources and removes the risk of technology lock-in. Any workload can be moved to CiCloud without having to be re-architected, allowing customers to build their Cloud services based on business needs.
Centerprise can work with customers to create a tailored transformation to the Cloud, complete with one simple, transparent, and predictable billing process for greater economic control.
"This is an exciting development for Centerprise and an equally exciting proposition for our customers. We are motivated by the prospect of being able to remove the complexity associated with cloud computing. I am personally energised by this innovation, which has been made possible through embracing HPE GreenLake and CloudSigma's Cloud-as-a-Service. I anticipate CiCloud becoming the catalyst and enabler for change." says Jeremy Nash, CEO Centerprise International.
Increased agility and cost efficiency
By building CiCloud on the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform, Centerprise has maximised agility with the ability to rapidly scale the Cloud infrastructure at any time as new customers are acquired. HPE GreenLake also brings economics efficiencies through the elimination of overprovisioning costs and its pay-per-use model.
Unique delivery model
Furthermore, CiCloud is set out to leverage CloudSigma's one of a kind cloud solution. Thanks to CloudSigma's fully managed cloud-as-a-service solution, CiCloud customers take advantage of features such as no vendor lock-in, free 24 x 7 x 365 technical support and a global network of clouds. This allows CiCloud to offer one of the most scalable cloud platforms on the UK market.
