Third Party Cloud Hosting

We recognise our own infrastructure may not be the most suitable choice for part or even all of a client’s particular needs. As a solutions provider, our fully managed service can be applied across third party infrastructure.

For example, you may have already strategically committed to a particular infrastructure path; you may require hosting outside the UK for a specific purpose; or it might make sense to use third party infrastructure for business continuity/disaster recovery reasons.

Third Party Cloud Hosting

Whatever you are trying to achieve, just ask: ten to one we can find a great solution for you - which might be wholly deployed on a third party cloud, wholly deployed on our own, or perhaps a combination of the two.

Clouds supported include Amazon Web Services (of course), but also Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Joyent and others. We are committed to providing the most appropriate ‘best-of-breed’ solution for you, at the best price point, so we’re always happy to investigate third party options to deliver what you need. We are able to support all these options - we take an agnostic stance in relation to infrastructure and have been layering our management onto third party clouds for a number of years now. So, whether you need an IP address in Italy for your competition app, to satisfy Italian legal requirements, or you need an origin and CDN within mainland China, we can help.
