British cloud infrastructure provider for the public sector UKCloud has landed a £25 million funding round from Digital Alpha. The company is working with the UK's health and life sciences customers, as well as defence and national security organisations.
The investor, Digital Alpha, is a strategic partner of Cisco, which was one of UKCloud’s first alliance partners and is powering a significant part of UKCloud's infrastructure.
“We believe that in collaborating with UKCloud to deliver leading cloud technology solutions, we have the ability to help enable real transformation of essential government services,” said Scot Gardner, chief executive, Cisco UK and Ireland. “Cisco and UKCloud have developed a strong working relationship with the aim of helping to support the UK’s digitisation plans with meaningful business transformation.”
