NHS Green Cloud Story
At Green Cloud Hosting, we’ve been providing rapid, reliable and secure cloud hosting services to SMEs and public sector organisations since 2011. Our reputation for exceptional customer support and advanced security protection has made us the number one choice for companies across Manchester and the North West.
We beat off stiff competition to secure a prestigious £200,000 contract with the NHS. Following a consultation period, where Green Cloud Hosting’s safety and security protocols were thoroughly tested, we were selected to provide encrypted online data backup services to more than 400 GP surgeries supported by the NHS South, Central and West Commissioning Support Unit (SCW).
The NHS partnership has been an exciting step for Green Cloud Hosting. Managing Director Kamran Maqbool presented the winning bid that came out on top. In total, 91 competing providers pitched for the contract to provide a fully managed online backup and disaster recovery solution, fully encrypted for each of the 400+ physical servers.
The contract, which is open ended, has opened the doors for further partnerships with large public sector organisations. The high standard of customer care and support offered by Green Cloud Hosting, combined with the security and reliability of our services, has been praised by the NHS’s digital team.
Dan Brooks, Programme Manager for Digital Transformation at NHS SCW, said: “I’m very happy with Green Cloud. Their cloud solution has proved to be extremely cost effective and painless to implement.”
“This is a landmark contract for our company and a key milestone in our vision to become THE provider of cloud hosting services for SMEs and Public Sector organisations ,” said Kamran. “We believe that all companies, regardless of size, should have access to up-to-date technology. At Green Cloud, we cut through all the technical jargon and provide rapid, reliable and secure solutions to help our customers work smarter and more effectively.”
