UKCloud successfully competes with generalist hyperscale providers by delivering specialist features, such as comprehensive assurance, that are cost-effective and relevant to the UK public sector. The company works closely with a strategic partner, Red Hat, to innovate the OpenStack platform by developing industry-leading security features, including two-factor authentication, secure networking and IP whitelisting. The company’s OpenStack platform is optimised for cloud native applications requiring the elasticity of a genuine public cloud platform coupled with the unique layers of assurance, sovereignty and secure government connectivity inherent to the UKCloud service.
