Skyscape Cloud Services Limited has announced that it has been included in the list of “Cool Vendors” in the Cool Vendors in the European Cloud Computing Market report* by Gartner Inc.

According to the report: “European customers, but also customers in other areas of the world, who are looking to leverage cloud computing for their success should focus on targeted solutions (such as those delivered by the European vendors that are profiled here in areas such as supply chain control, cloud management or delivering public services) that are geared toward solving particular problems over trying to pick generic horizontal platforms that might one day become industry standards.”

“We consider our inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner to be a huge win for us as a company, recognising all the hard work we’ve put into making Skyscape the provider of choice on G-Cloud,” said Phil Dawson, CEO, Skyscape Cloud Services. “We have designed a cloud platform that is specifically tailored to meet the demanding needs of the UK public sector, capitalising on the government shift to cloud computing and its Cloud First policy which aims to drive wider adoption of cloud computing by the public sector through the G-Cloud Framework.”

Skyscape’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Software-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service solutions have helped to transform the provision of IT solutions into a lean, elastic, assured green utility by providing a genuine on-demand cloud computing service. The company’s success to date includes winning a number of high-profile contracts with public sector organisations including the Cabinet Office, Home Office, HMRC, and MOD.

Selling directly as well as partnering with channel partners, including most leading system integrators, managed service providers and independent software vendors, enables Skyscape to not only meet the needs of the UK public sector but also rapidly develop value-added services.

Skyscape services are delivered with leading technologies from Skyscape Cloud Alliance Partners: QinetiQ, VMware, Cisco, EMC and Ark Data Centres.
