16/06/14
Government Procurement Service Supplier

We are pleased to announce that HPC Wales has been included as an official supercomputing (High Performance Computing) supplier in the UK Government’s latest online procurement programme, the G-Cloud 5, enabling us to continue providing government and public sector organisations with supercomputing technology, training & support.

The G-Cloud Programme, now launching its fifth version, ensures that central UK Government departments consider services from those registered as suppliers on the Cloud ahead of all other organisations in any IT procurement process. The G-Cloud Programme was formed in 2012 to introduce cloud ICT services into government departments, local authorities and the wider public sector.

Using applications such as Big Data analytics and advanced modeling and simulation, supercomputing technology can help public sector organisations with town planning, medical research, crime prevention and defence to name but a few examples.

Organisations can access our state-of-the art supercomputing technology remotely via a laptop or desktop computer, connecting to the network through a secure web browser and benefiting from its powerful processing capability, wherever they are based.

Karen Padmore, Operations Director at HPC Wales, said:

“We are delighted to announce that HPC Wales has been approved to continue to provide supercomputing services in the latest version of the G-Cloud procurement portal and we are calling on central government, local authorities and public sector organisations across the UK to get in touch to find out how the technology, training and support can superpower their processes.”
