Cloud9 have teamed up with Jisc Commercial, the commercial arm of Jisc who own and operate the Janet network and HPE to offer high-end Cloud Services to Janet connected organisations.

Jisc Commercial, Cloud9 and HPE are working across the sector with a number of key organisations, as well as buying consortiums for Primary and Secondary Schools.

  • A transformation journey to consume cloud services directly on Janet
  • Innovation, agility, scale and choice to the customer
  • A move from a traditional Total Cost of Ownership model to ICT On Demand
  • A single cloud environment that can encompass the vast majority of requirements
  • Remove the risks associated with public cloud, whilst maintaining the benefits
  • Organisational control of ICT needs and requirements, both now and in the future
  • Unrestricted vendor choice and a move away from the current status quo

In reality it hasn’t been that straight forward for the Public sector to utilise Cloud Services, so the in many cases they are behind the curve. This partnership ensures we can offer leading edge innovation and a transformation journey, which is needed by the sector.
