Crown Hosting Data Centre Limited is a joint venture between the government and Ark Data Centres. This agreement is available to the wider public sector. It enables you to move to a single environment, understand what you have, and disaggregate and utilise public cloud, private cloud and traditional colocation services. This delivers large cost savings and the opportunity to disaggregate services in line with the Cloud First Government Digital Service (GDS) policy.
CCS manages the agreement, including benchmarking and auditing. As a customer, you will be responsible for migrating your servers into Crown Hosting and for day to day administration.
