iomart Group plc  has been shortlisted as a finalist for the 6th International Datacentre & Cloud Awards 2013 in the Private Cloud Services & Infrastructure category.

The Group was nominated for its Cloudsure platform, which offers a fully resilient, secure, scalable and highly available private cloud solution enabling enterprises to scale their own computing, network and storage requirements in real time according to their needs.

Angus MacSween, CEO of iomart Group plc, said, “Speed and co-ordinating the delivery of many types of services is key to private cloud so iomart has developed Cloudsure to allow ease of provisioning and management as well as investing in our own private fibre network to deliver securely and at the highest speeds right up to our customers’ door.”

Ashley Davies, chairman of the Judges Panel for the International Datacentre & Cloud Awards, commented, “This year’s nominations once again demonstrate the very high levels of competency that companies engaged in the datacentre and cloud service sector need to attain.

“We are entering an extraordinary period of radical change in the data centre fabric, in cloud, modular, DCIM software, and new innovations in cooling and electrical power. This means players must be agile and able to respond to demand for flexibility, IT expertise, new ways in procurement, and achieve vertical market expertise, cost and technical differentiation. The Awards process aims to reflect these trends and identify best in class for each category.”

The 6th International Datacentre & Cloud Awards are organised by international consulting firm Broad Group.

Philip Low, managing director of BroadGroup, added, “In 2013 the Awards will again provide new benchmarks of aspiration for the companies shortlisted and world class recognition for winners.”

The winners will be announced at the Awards ceremony on 13th June at the prestigious One Whitehall Place, central London.
