Memset Break Into Local Government Through G-Cloud

Helping Staffordshire County Council Via The Cloud

Guildford, Surrey – 5 December 2012 – Award-winning, IaaS G-Cloud supplier, Memset, today announced it will be providing IL2 hosting to Staffordshire County Council, secured via the G-Cloud’s CloudStore.

The council had an immediate and short term requirement for secure, yet flexible hosting to roll out one of its Social Care projects.

Sander Kristel, CIO for Staffordshire County Council, turned to the G-Cloud’s CloudStore to find a hosting partner capable of providing up to level IL2 hosting, said: “This is our first purchase via the G-Cloud and it all went very smoothly. It’s easy to evaluate suppliers and once we signed up with Memset on 2nd November we were live the same day. Our requirement was immediate and needed a solution that was secure but flexible enough to facilitate a, potentially short-term, need. This is the way we all should procure IT services.”

“We’re delighted that Staffordshire County Council has come to us for this project, making them our first local government G-Cloud win. It is likely to be a great example of cloud’s cost-saving pay-as-you-use model,” said Kate Craig-Wood, MD of Memset.
