7 Key Insights Powering Cloud Services at Skyscape by Ark Data Centres, 16th February 2015

In 2012 Skyscape Cloud Services was founded to provide a range of highly secure Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offerings to public sector organisations.

Thanks to its partnership with Ark, the Company quickly achieved the highest level of Pan Government Accreditation (PGA) possible for its G-Cloud services – and in the process successfully secured contracts with the Cabinet Office, Home Office, HMRC and MOD. And, with revenue rising by 20% every month, Skyscape has become a British SME success story and the rising star of assured cloud services.
