Machester-based UKFast said on Wednesday that it will be launching what the company claims to be the UK’s largest virtual private cloud service. The service, eCloud, is an elastic virtual private cloud service and is claimed to be the first of its kind in the UK and is set to hit the UK market sometime this week.
In a bid to grab a slice of the UK cloud market, virtualisation and telecommunications services company Stack Group announced that it is investing £1.7m to increase its virtualised server estate.
Glasgow-based cloud computing firm Iomart Group on Friday announced the acquisition of dedicated server and managed service provider Redstation for £8m.
Advanced 365, UKFast, Softcat and Phoenix are the latest group of cloud service suppliers to have secured a spot in the UK government CloudStore, a digital marketplace for ICT services procured by government IT departments.
