Virtual Office, cloud

Skyscape Cloud Services has today announced further price cuts to its accredited cloud solutions. The company’s customers will now benefit from a reduction of up to 50 percent for additional storage provided as part of Skyscape’s Compute-as-a-Service offering, across both its Assured OFFICIAL and Elevated OFFICIAL cloud platforms, with reductions backdated to 1st August 2015.

Skyscape has reduced the price of its Compute-as-a-Service storage offering by over 70 percent this year. On average, these latest pricing reductions could save Skyscape customers more than £9,000 per year, based on current consumption levels. The data storage provided as part of Skyscape’s Compute-as-a-Service solution is now being used to host over a petabyte (1 million gigabytes) of data, in addition to the many petabytes currently hosted on Skyscape’s Cloud Storage platform.

“Due to increasing demand from our UK public sector customers and our successful community of more than 160 partner organisations, the Skyscape assured cloud platform has achieved unprecedented scale,” said Simon Hansford, CEO of Skyscape Cloud Services. “We’re delighted that our continued growth and success means that we can pass on these economies of scale to our customers, many of which face significant budget cuts as part of the 2015 Spending Review.”

Hansford continued: “We’re committed to delivering demonstrable value to our customers and have always offered genuine pay-by-the-hour consumption pricing models as standard. Thanks to our growth – which has been accelerated by the opportunities afforded to SMEs by initiatives such as the G-Cloud Framework – this latest wave of cost reductions is the seventh we’ve been able to pass on to our customers since we first launched our services on the first G-Cloud iteration in 2012.”
