“There are a number of benefits to government and public services in vCloud Air. The first one of course is around the fact that the datacenter for our public cloud is based in the UK, so there are no concerns around the domicile of the data and the fact that the datacenter operates under UK law.
The second one is around the fact that these services can be consumed off G-Cloud 6, from a number of our partners and resellers, and VMware direct. vCloud Air will operate at the official level of security accreditation.”
