Channel-ready cloud solutions

For us, connectivity is key to delivering a high performing cloud solution. So, it made perfect sense for us to build our own virtual data centre platform into our network, to deliver connectivity and cloud seamlessly. Working in partnership with Acronis, data security specialists, and by leveraging our own network capabilities we can deliver simple and highly effective cloud solutions to your customers.

With our 1Cloud products, you can:

  • Customise the perfect cloud suite for your customers, based on their business needs
  • Host your own solution, as well as customers’ critical IT systems
  • Keep your customers' critical data safe
  • Keep things simple with straightforward commercials

This means your customers can:

  • Save time and money by taking infrastructure management out of their workload
  • Shrug off data losses with reliable, secure backup and recovery options

Two routes to market

We know how important the technology of high-tier data centres is to businesses, and we know how difficult it can be to harness that tech. Our flexible Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform—1Cloud—is built into the core of our network, across strategically chosen Tier 3 data centres in the UK.

1Cloud is easily suited to both the straight resell of the infrastructure to your customers, or as an ideal location to hosts the solutions you sell to on to them.

Key platform features:

  • PAYG or fixed-term commercials
  • Choice of high performance or long term storage options
  • Resource reservations for key applications
  • Zerto and Veeam for replication
  • Windows and SQL Licensing
  • Diverse Tier 3 locations for geodiversity


With 1Cloud we keep it simple, with only a handful of billable elements, and bandwidth included free of charge, you can bring cloud solutions to your customers quickly and easily. Placed at the heart of our network, your customers can be assured of the security and performance of the environment.

Ideal hosted environment for Channel Solutions

Hosted privately in the core of our network, 1Cloud is the ideal location to host channel solutions like hosted voice platforms or virtual desktops. With simple commercial models to allow you to package the whole solution, we deliver and maintain the infrastructure, as well as delivering the solution, privately over our connectivity. Working with us you don’t have to worry about the CAPEX and OPEX of building your own Tier 3 environment—so you're free to focus on offering the very best customer experience.
