Daisy Group has become the latest services player to plunge headlong into the increasingly crowded pool of cloud providers, launching its CloudSelect offering at the fourth annual Cloud Computing World Forum in London.
The business comms provider has rounded up the usual suspects of Cisco, NetApp and VMware to back its cloud programme, which is deployed over its proprietary network through its UK datacentres in London, Manchester and Southampton and an offshore facility in the Channel Islands.
All four datacentres are connected to the firm's national fibre network, which Daisy claims will enable it to deliver faster guaranteed response times and additional security services.
"We've invested millions in developing four ... world class, secure ... datacentres in the UK, which now handle some of the country's most sensitive data," said Daisy corporate sales director Will Kennedy.
"Entire businesses require instant, secure access to data wherever they are, and the ability to back this up, store it and recall it at any point in time. Not only do we deliver all of this with CloudSelect but we also guarantee peace of mind because we can tell our customers exactly where their data is stored and guarantee it will never leave our network," he added.
