UKCloud, the easy to adopt, easy to use and easy to leave assured cloud services company, has this week won the OpenStack Superuser Award at the OpenStack Summit in Boston. UKCloud is this year’s joint winner with Paddy Power Betfair. 

The OpenStack Superuser Awards launched in 2014 to recognise organisations that have used OpenStack to meaningfully improve their business while contributing back to the community. Previous winners include multi-billion pound global organisations such as AT&T, CERN, Comcast and NTT Group. UKCloud successfully competes with generalist hyperscale providers by delivering specialist features, such as comprehensive assurance, that are cost-effective and relevant to the UK public sector. The company works closely with a strategic partner, Red Hat, to innovate the OpenStack platform by developing industry-leading security features, including two-factor authentication, secure networking and IP whitelisting. The company’s OpenStack platform is optimised for cloud native applications requiring the elasticity of a genuine public cloud platform coupled with the unique layers of assurance, sovereignty and secure government connectivity inherent to the UKCloud service.
