Being part of the G- Cloud framework is clear evidence that the UK government is committed to leverage innovation through the diverse and valuable knowledge pool that sits within the SME's across the UK.
Oxford, Oxfordshire (PRWEB UK) 3 June 2013
Tessella, the world leader in digital preservation, has been accredited as a provider of Specialist Cloud Services under the UK Government Procurement Service G-Cloud framework for its digital preservation cloud based software as a service offering, Preservica. http://govstore.service.gov.uk/cloudstore/preservica.
A Government spokesperson said: “Preserving digital records is one of the biggest challenges facing archives in the twenty-first century. Unlike paper records, which can last for hundreds of years in the right conditions, digital records are extremely vulnerable to changing technology.“
Preservica runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and offers a long-term digital archiving and preservation system without the overheads of procuring a system or supporting the infrastructure. This cloud service is based on the world leading preservation system, Safety Deposit Box (SDB). Tessella and UK National Archives won the Queen's Awards for Innovation in 2011. SDB has been adopted by archives and libraries all over the world.
Jon Tilbury, Tessella’s Director of Archiving Solutions, commented: “We are tremendously pleased that Preservica has been selected by the Government Procurement Service to be a supplier on the G-Cloud framework. Being part of the G-Cloud framework is clear evidence that the UK government is committed to leverage innovation through the diverse and valuable knowledge pool that sits within the SME's across the UK. We look forward to engaging and working with a wide range of public sector bodies on some exciting projects.”
