Edinburgh, UK – 19 August 2019 – Pulsant, a leading UK provider of hybrid cloud services, has been awarded a place on the Scottish Government’s newly launched Cloud Services Framework. The framework has been designed to help Scottish public and third sector organisations maximise efficiency and collaboration by aligning with the strategic priorities in Scotland’s Digital Future.

Pulsant is offering its own private, public and hybrid cloud solutions on the framework, as well as hyper-scale cloud services and its colocation services.

“This is a tremendous step forward for the public sector in Scotland and we are delighted to once again be included on the framework and to continue to support organisations in the region,” says John Easson, Head of Sales — public sector and enterprise (Scotland), Pulsant.

Pulsant has a significant presence in Scotland and is the largest colocation provider in the country. Three of its 10 owned and operated data centres are located there, with its South Gyle site the largest in Scotland.

The company already works with a number of public sector organisations in the region, and has a wealth of experience in delivering colocation, cloud and data centre services to customers.

The framework supports digital initiatives in the region, including the Data Hosting and Data Centre Strategy and has replaced the Scottish Government’s four-year Hosting Services Framework.

“Public sector organisations are already using cloud in various forms and enjoying its benefits. Moving forward there will be an increased drive to ensure they are fully capitalising on the cloud opportunity and optimising its usage. This new framework makes it easier for organisations to evaluate suppliers and ensure they can procure the right set of solutions and support — which is a really important step in helping Scotland realise its full potential as a digital nation.”

Pulsant executives will also be on-hand at the Holyrood Connect Cloud Services in the Public Sector Conference on the 18th September 2019 to discuss how Pulsant is helping public sector organisations to transform and optimise their technology investment.
