• UKFast creates group to bring together three brands

        • UKFast has created a group of companies to consolidate three brands into one entity, bringing ClearCloud and UKFast Public Sector together within the core UKFast hosting business.

          ClearCloud specialises in delivering managed support and migration services for public cloud hosting from Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. 

          The public sector arm, which counts the likes of the Cabinet Office and Ministry of Defence as its customers, was accelerated significantly with the acquisition of public sector cloud and security specialists Secure Information Assurance (S-IA) in 2017. 

          UKFast Public Sector is expected to again grow by more than 50 per cent in 2019, with the combined turnover of UKFast Group set to exceed £60m.

          Lawrence Jones, UKFast CEO said, “ClearCloud and UKFast Public Sector sit well within UKFast's dynamic environment. The trading relationships and synergies within the three customer bases are clear.

          “It was always the plan, following the acquisition of S-IA, to roll this business into UKFast. We recognised a strong cultural fit and they’ve been incredible since they joined us. This is now one of the fastest growing and exciting areas of the business.  

          “Nowadays businesses want multi-cloud strategies, so our investment in ClearCloud is timely. It helps us support our customers that want to spread workloads across multiple providers.

          “In tough market conditions, as we’re seeing with continued Brexit uncertainty, businesses look to their key suppliers for cost savings and efficiencies. With our increased focus on R&D in recent years we're well placed to help our clients increase their productivity and accelerate their sales online.”
