Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) is the latest vendor to sign a memorandum of understanding with the Government to provide cheaper cloud services.
The partnership is part of the Government's One Cloud strategy, which offers "preferential terms" to public sector bodies and is designed to co-ordinate cloud migration.
Sue Preston, GM for UK&I at HPE Pointnext Services, said: "We are delighted to have signed this MOU as part of the One Government Cloud strategy and look forward to helping public sector organisations to optimise their hybrid cloud operations.
"Despite the growth of cloud strategies in the public sector, many organisations have struggled to move business critical applications to the public cloud, due to application entanglement, data gravity, security and compliance, and unpredictable costs.
"By leveraging HPE technologies, like HPE GreenLake, public sector organisations can reduce complexity, boost innovation and bring cost efficiency to their digital transformation efforts."
Simon Tse, chief executive at Crown Commercial Service, added: "CCS provides commercial agreements which help organisations across the entire public sector save time and money on buying everyday goods and services.
"This memorandum of understanding with HPE not only provides great value for public sector organisations, it also allows them to innovate more readily and improve services for the citizens they serve."
