What is the framework for?
The G Cloud Framework Agreement enables UK Public Sector bodies to choose and purchase cloud computing services covering infrastructure, platform, software and specialist cloud services. It sits on the Digital Marketplace portal, offering a cheaper, quicker and more transparent way to procure commodity based, pay-as-you go cloud services across three lots:
Lot 1: Cloud Hosting (IaaS) and (PaaS
Lot 2: Cloud Software (SaaS)
Lot 3: Cloud Support
Here's where we can help
Bramble Hub can supply on all three Lots on this framework, with over 100 entries on the catalogue.
Cloud hosting services are cloud platform or infrastructure services that can help buyers:
- deploy, manage and run software
- provision and use processing, storage or networking resources
(On G-Cloud 8, cloud hosting was known as ‘Platform as a Service’ and ‘Infrastructure as a Service’.)
Bramble Hub can deploy onto the Cloud any customer infrastructure or applications, which have been created using programming languages and tools supported by us. We manage and control the underlying Cloud infrastructure - including network, servers, operating systems and storage. The customer has control over the deployed applications, and sometimes over the application hosting environment configurations.
We provide processing, storage, networks, and other fundamental computing resources where the consumer can deploy and run arbitrary software, which can include operating systems and applications.
For IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) applications, we work closely with our customers on this framework. The consumer does not manage or control the underlying Cloud infrastructure but has control over operating systems, storage, deployed applications, and possibly limited control of select networking components such as host firewalls.
For PaaS (Platform as a Service) applications, we deploy onto the Cloud any customer infrastructure or applications which have been created using programming languages and tools supported by us. We manage and control the underlying Cloud infrastructure - including network, servers, operating systems and storage. The customer has control over the deployed applications, and sometimes over the application hosting environment configurations.
Cloud software services are applications that are accessed over the internet and hosted in the cloud.
(On G-Cloud 8, cloud software was known as ‘Software as a Service’.)
We provide over 60 applications running on a Cloud infrastructure. The applications are accessible to the customer's staff through web browsers and similar thin-client interfaces.
We, rather than the customer, manage the underlying Cloud infrastructure - including network, servers, operating systems, storage, and even individual application capabilities - except for limited user-specific application configuration settings.
Cloud support suppliers provide services to help buyers set up and maintain their cloud services.
(On G-Cloud 8, cloud support was known as ‘Specialist Cloud Services’.)
We provide 40 services to support planning, set-up, migration, testing, training and ongoing support for customers implementing Cloud based services.
