Supporting the Ministry of Defence in moving away from legacy private cloud

With efforts to rationalise its datacentre estate and move more of its apps and data to the public cloud, the Ministry of Defence look to Netcompany to support their migration aspirations.

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has moved nearly 50 more applications from a legacy private cloud environment to its MODCloud with the help of IT service provider Netcompany.

In a statement to Computer Weekly, a spokesperson for the MoD said the project will benefit more than 330,000 users from across the defence community, while also providing them with “greater resilience and cyber security.”

The statement added: “This migration has been a great example of collaboration between all application owners, Army Digital Services, Defence Digital’s MODCloud team, and our delivery partner, Netcompany to enable this outcome.”

 

Richard Davies, UK country manager partner at Netcompany, said moving more of its applications and workloads to the public cloud would benefit the MoD in a variety of ways. “Given our extensive industry and domain knowledge, as well as our strong track record, we understand the challenges that the MoD encounters daily, and as a result were able to assist in rapidly and successfully deploying their applications. Today it is vitally important that our armed forces are as efficient, productive and innovative as possible and moving to a public cloud infrastructure will deliver the flexibility and agility they need, both now and in the future.”
