Public Sector Cloud : PSN, PCI DSS, ISO 27001, Cyber Essentials, Crown Commercial Service SupplierDedicated to providing compliant cloud to the UK public sector

Carrenza’s OFFICIAL IaaS Cloud is a secure cloud service that supports digital transformation, transactional systems, and legacy environments, including Oracle hosting to public sector organisations. The service is available via the internet and PSN, including PSN Protect and PSN Assured, and is ideal for test, development and production environments.

Focused on delivering secure and highly available services across the public sector and we already work with a number of departments including Government Digital Service (GDS) to deliver GOV.UK; the flagship government publishing portal.

Taking a multi-cloud approach

In addition to our own IaaS we also partner with the major public cloud providers, Microsoft AzureAWS and vCloud Air, to offer public sector bodies a hybrid solution that means they are able to put the right workload in the right cloud at the right time. Indeed we have worked with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and GDS on such solutions.

Working in partnership

A core part of the Carrenza strategy is to partner with service and software providers to help enable how they deliver their services to organisations. Together with our partners, we deliver a significant number of the assured services available through the Digital Marketplace and other pan-government frameworks (including RM1054 and RM1058).

Organisations we partner with

Organisations we partner with include CGI, Sopra Steria, Envitia, TerraQuest, Mastek (including Indigo Blue), and i2N.

Through these partnerships, we have engaged with a range of high-profile public sector agencies, local authorities, and departments, including Harrow London Borough Council, Crossrail, and HS2 / Department for Transport.
