G-Cloud supplier Skyscape awarded for use of VMware technologies

Skyscape Cloud Services, the cloud services company, has received the VMware vCloud Service Provider Partner Award at VMworld 2013.  The award was presented by Pat Gelsinger, CEO of VMware, at the Partner Day ceremony hosted in Barcelona on October 14th.  VMware is an American software company that provides cloud and virtualisation software and services.

According to Phil Dawson, CEO of Skyscape Cloud Services.  “As a company, we have achieved a great deal in a relatively short space of time and remain fully committed to continuing to deliver innovative, agile and cost-effective cloud solutions to our growing number of customers and partners.”

Skyscape has been a major supplier to the G-Cloud programme since its launch in February 2012 and has won a number of public sector contracts through the Framework to date.  The company has experienced rapid growth and recently launched its Channel Partner Programme in August 2013, which was established to recruit channel partners to work with Skyscape under the latest iteration of the G-Cloud Framework – G-Cloud 4.

Dawson continued: “There have been many changes in the industry in the last 18 months, due to the truly transformational impact that the G-Cloud Framework has had, together with initiatives such as the Public Cloud First policy, which are succeeding in changing attitudes towards Government IT.  The UK is leading the way in delivering quality assured services at cost-effective prices, and we are very proud to continue to be recognised for our ongoing commitment to improving the use and procurement of IT services in the public sector.”
