Crown Hosting Data Centres: COVID-19 Statement
Local Government authorities need a stable and secure framework in order to facilitate a Cloud Appropriate digital transformation. Crown Hosting has this ideal framework on which to aggregate shared services, improving public services, increasing cost savings, and releasing unnecessary public assets. It can also facilitate joint working between Combined Authorities, supporting greater devolution of public service delivery.
Crown Hosting provides the ideal platform to grow and develop our IT Shared Service with our Public Sector colleagues. It is a cost-effective and secure hosting solution, perfect for the demands of an ever-changing Public Sector
The Borough Council of Wellingborough and East Northamptonshire Council
Value for money:
We deliver an average £3 commercial saving* for every £1 spent by our Public Sector customers. We offer core colocation services as well as enabling services, such as inter-site WAN, remote hands, and cabling, at highly attractive rates pre-negotiated on the back of total Public Sector demand. We provide flexible solutions, enabling you to pay for what you use whilst enjoying the benefits of a highly available environment at a lower cost. We give immediate cost benefits whilst you plan your IT strategy without any lock-in. We also deliver a predictable cost model that helps you plan your infrastructure budget, via our OJEU approved framework.
Crown Hosting data hosting solutions can be used on a pay-as-you-go basis within your hybrid Cloud strategy. Any vendor or service provider can be used in conjunction with the platform, with connectivity to multiple government and commercial networks in place.
The easy to procure framework removes the usual lengthy procurement processes and is OJEU compliant, providing neutral data centre capacity in data rooms dedicated to the Public Sector. These data rooms include 99.999% availability on power, 24/7 monitoring of all facilities, NCSC assurance and conduct in line with CPNI guidance. The data centres themselves are among the most efficient and secure in the UK, enabling significant revenue savings, and have been carefully benchmarked by The Cabinet Office and Government security organisations to ensure that they meet all Government requirements and deliver best value for money.
Our Connected Campus allows you to connect to any Cloud platform or any other service from our facilities. Our work with many organisations over the years means that we already have a lot of fibre infrastructure and diverse routes and suppliers. You can easily access this fibre directly from our data centre, which lowers your operations cost as the infrastructure you need is already in place. Furthermore, there is no lock-in, and you can change your service providers or vendors when required. You can also add or decrease space requirements as needed, and we can also accommodate the latest High-Performance Computer equipment.
Ease of use:
Our solutions provide an IT ready platform, with 24/7 Smart Hands and service desk capability in addition to a dedicated on-boarding team with predefined SLAs. This is all underpinned by flexible contract terms, with multiple site options.
Crown Hosting is the perfect framework for your legacy and new private platforms, as well as your sensitive data. Connect to multiple Cloud options and leverage other managed services available on each site.
