Cloud

Cloud computing continues to mature in the UK, as hosting providers add services and traditional mobile phone companies...

expand their purview. For many cloud users, data protection is top priority, especially for small businesses looking for better data security solutions. Using cloud services can also add flexibility and bulk up what an organisation can do with IT.

Many providers are also pushing into virtualised servers to offer to customers. Choosing the right provider takes some work, but the wealth of options available is making that job easier. Find the best UK cloud providers in this learning guide.

Note: We've included only UK-based cloud providers in this directory, along with several large U.S.-based cloud organisations that do business in the UK. We have focused on broad-service cloud providers rather than on niche Software as a Service (SaaS)-only vendors. Providers may appear in more than one category.

 

  1. Server, storage and infrastructure cloud providers
  2. Managed services cloud providers
  3. Data backup and security cloud providers
  4. Hosted desktop cloud providers

Thanks for the guide Christine. Another thing to remember when choosing a cloud computing provider is where your data would be hosted. National policy on data protection is always important to consider.

The Cloud is a superb idea, much more stability and security for data storage. In fact I don't think I've heard of anyone losing data stored on the cloud due to tech errors?
