“We came to SCC because we did not want to have multiple solutions, from differing providers. We needed a trusted pair of hands that could provide solutions across the entire range of our IT needs. The depth and breadth of the SCC solutions available, from connectivity to cloud, and their overall capability meant we had one provider to go to for everything.”

Our Cloud Services Solutions 

Public Cloud

SCC Hyperscale is a dedicated division enabling customers transformation to Public Cloud services.
Providing assessment, modernisation, optimisation and managed services to Private and Public Sector organisations. Enabling digital transformation through strategy consultation, planning, adoption and governance of multi-cloud services across Microsoft Azure and AWS.

Private Cloud

Hybrid Cloud combines on-site infrastructure with Public Cloud and/or Private Cloud environments. In the Private Cloud hardware and software are dedicated to your organisation or are provided by your Managed Service Provider, such as SCC’s Cloud+ and Sentinel services. Since no one is sharing your resources, you reduce the chances of data security issues. This means you can take advantage of many Public Cloud benefits but with greater control.


Our colocation services keep services continually available, physically secure and fully supported. We are one of the UK’s leading Data Centre Services providers, providing Data Centre Services to UK’s Public Sector, Private Sector and Systems Integrators. The data centre portfolio is connected by diverse, scalable, high capacity, low latency fibre circuits offering options for inter-data centre connectivity.

Data Management

Modern IT management requires the integration and management of data across these hybrid and multi-cloud environments, making storage solutions that support such deployments essential. Selecting the right storage solution is essential to ensure that an organisation can meet its data storage requirements efficiently and effectively, to support data-driven decision-making, business continuity, and security.

How do I integrate Cloud Services?

Integration in the cloud involves either creating cloud-to-cloud integration, cloud-to-on-premises integration, or a combination of both. Integrations can address different business components:
– Connecting data and applications
– Accessing, cleansing, transforming, and sharing data
– Manage and distribute from all data storage options

Why are Cloud Services important?

Cloud services allow organisations to scale and adapt at speed to streamline operations, accelerate innovation, drive business agility, and importantly reduce costs in this current climate. Therefore allowing organisations to scale, maintain flexibility, and focus efforts on business operations and not managing complex IT infrastructure.

How do I manage risk and security in Cloud Services?

Managing risk and security in a cloud environment involves several key considerations. Here are some general best practices that you can follow:
1.Understand the Shared Responsibility Model: With cloud services, there is a shared responsibility model between the cloud provider and the customer. The provider is responsible for securing the physical infrastructure, while the customer is responsible for securing their own applications, data, and access to the cloud service. Be clear about what aspects of security are your responsibility.
2.Choose a secure cloud service provider: Look for a cloud service provider with strong security measures in place, such as data encryption, access controls, intrusion detection and prevention, and regular security audits.
3.Use strong authentication: Implement strong authentication mechanisms, such as multi-factor authentication, to ensure that only authorized users have access to your cloud services.
4.Implement access controls: Implement access controls that limit the privileges of users and applications, and ensure that access to sensitive data is restricted to authorized individuals.
5.Regularly monitor for suspicious activity: Monitor your cloud services regularly for suspicious activity, such as unauthorized access attempts or unusual data access patterns.
6.Backup and disaster recovery planning: Ensure that you have a backup and disaster recovery plan in place to mitigate the impact of any security incidents or data loss.
7.Regularly Review and Update Security Policies: Regularly review and update your security policies and procedures to ensure that they remain effective and relevant.
By following these best practices, you can help to manage risk and security in your cloud services environment or partner with a Managed Service Provider to do this for you.

How do I maximise cost-effectiveness in a cloud environment?

Here are some general best practices that you can follow:
1.Choose the right cloud service model: Understand the different cloud service models (e.g., Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service, Software-as-a-Service) and choose the model that best fits your needs. This can help you avoid paying for unnecessary features or capabilities.
2.Use reserved instances: Reserved Instances are a cost-saving option provided by most cloud service providers. They allow you to reserve capacity in advance at a lower hourly rate, resulting in significant cost savings over time.
3.Use autoscaling: Autoscaling allows you to automatically adjust your cloud resources based on demand. By using autoscaling, you can ensure that you are only paying for the resources you need at any given time.
4.Monitor resource usage: Regularly monitor your resource usage to identify any areas where you can optimize your usage or reduce unnecessary spending.
5.Use cloud cost management tools: Many cloud service providers offer cost management tools that can help you analyze and optimize your cloud spending. These tools can provide insights into your resource usage, cost breakdowns, and potential cost-saving opportunities.
6.Leverage cloud discounts and promotions: Keep an eye out for discounts and promotions offered by your cloud service provider. Many providers offer promotional pricing for new customers or discounted rates for long-term commitments.
7.Use cloud native solutions: Leveraging cloud-native solutions and services can help you save costs by eliminating the need to build and maintain your own infrastructure.
By following these best practices, you can help to maximise cost-effectiveness in your cloud environment. However, keep in mind that optimising your cloud spending is an ongoing process and requires ongoing attention and effort.
