Email crownhosting@crowncommercial.gov.uk to talk about your datacentre hosting needs.

Features

The Crown Hosting service offers:

  • mission-critical datacentres
  • a secure environment for transition to the cloud
  • a flexible, pay-for-what-you-use model
  • power uptime availability that exceeds Tier III
  • leading environmental performance

Benefits

The framework benefits the government by offering:

  • easy access to colocated, secure datacentres with no minimum volume commitment
  • cost savings (because government demand for datacentre space is aggregated)
  • time savings (because there’s no need to manage multiple supplier tenders)
  • simple, transparent ‘pay-for-what-you-use’ pricing so usage can be scaled as required
  • choice of duration commitments that can be ended early without charge
  • volume rebates as volumes rise
  • robust performance service-level agreements, including power uptime
  • strong step-in rights for government to ensure continuity of service if needed
