UK public sector cloud specialist Skyscape has slashed its prices by up to nearly 60 per cent as it passes on increased economies of scale to customers.
The price reductions, for its compute-as-a-service, storage-as-a-service and email-as-a-service offerings, follow a "thorough service review" it claims will also see improved SLAs for customers.
As one of the largest suppliers and most enthusiastic backers of cloudy government framework G-Cloud, Skyscape now claims to be working on more than 100 public sector contracts.
It said it is able to offer the price cuts, which come into force on 1 November for both new and existing customers, thanks to the economies of scale its success to date has delivered.
"While G-Cloud presents a simply unmissable opportunity for all, service providers must ensure they are constantly evaluating the quality and price of their offerings, as the competition in the market is now so fierce, thanks to the success of the programme in driving up standards," said Skyscape chief executive Phil Dawson, whose firm counts Quinetiq, Cisco, EMC and VMware among its alliance partners.
"We are fully committed to the fundamental principles of the framework – transparency, integrity and agility – and as such, we will continue to ensure that we are delivering best-in-class services at the best possible prices. After all, the now-vibrant public sector marketplace really is a win-win situation for end users and ultimately UK citizens and taxpayers."
