InTechnology, a cloud provider for small and medium enterprises, has secured a supplier listing in the government’s G-Cloud 4 procurement round. The company has also extended its cloud offerings to platform-as-a-service, based on Oracle technologies.
InTechnology already had supplier status in 2012 but with the new iteration, like other companies had to submit its details again.
The company’s sales manager, Mark Halpin, said: “We are very pleased to have secured our continued place on a framework that has become fundamental to IT reform in the public sector.”
Halpin claimed that to date, over £50m worth of business has been transacted via the G-Cloud Cloudstore and approximately 60% of this is attributed to SMEs such as InTechnology.
Its PasS offering incorporates database and test and development as services via the G-Cloud framework. Specifically, it includes Oracle database, as well as Oracle Exadata Database Machine and delivers rapid test and development prototyping, live service elasticity and metered usage.
The Oracle-based cloud offering is a further notch for Oracle, which like a raft of other vendors, seek to ensure their technologies are behind the delivery of cloud-based services to the public sector. Oracle is already a long-standing supplier to UK government.
InTechnology’s cloud business is built upon an MPLS network which offers access to datacentres. It offers colocation, virtual hosting and managed data services.
