How the support service works
Daisy has more than 30 years’ experience managing customer infrastructures through a UK-wide workforce that is skilled across multiple cloud technologies. We can help you build your own on-premise infrastructure or let you use our secure data centre facilities. We design and provide co-location and managed hosting services and deliver hybrid cloud or pure public cloud platforms on which you can run your applications and services.
There is no single cloud solution that fits all. As a cloud services broker, we leverage the best of hyperscale public cloud services as well as our own secure and compliant UK platform, to operate your business applications in the best-fit environment.

We manage your cloud experience leaving you to focus on the positive outcomes it delivers.

Daisy can supply differing levels of support and management services for Cloud which range from reactive to proactive. The tiers of service are ‘Essentials’, ‘Enterprise’ and ‘Enterprise Plus’ as below and can be supplemented with additional services at any tier.

The services are delivered using Daisy’s standardised support model below which uses consistent tools and processes regardless of whether the infrastructure is dedicated/on-premise, Daisy Flex, Public Cloud or SaaS based.
