Government Cloud


Delivering public sector services on time, all the time

In today's society, 24/7 information availability is the norm that increasingly drives the public sector. Citizens can't wait. Operations can't slow. Services can't falter. Downtime is not an option. IT must function all of the time because the public sector delivers its services all of the time. That is why organisations like yours are turning to Sungard Availability Services as their provider of tailored, readily-available, government-approved cloud platforms.

The Sungard AS Government Cloud platform is accredited to conform to the Government "Official" and "Secure" standards, following the 14 cloud security principles as laid out by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC). This means any application or data which has to conform to those standards will have a pre-built infrastructure to process data without having to go through lengthy accreditation processes. This accelerates the application provider's time to market and provides infrastructure for government bodies running services that need to conform to these standards.
