The services we offer include:

Cloud isn’t just about implementation, we help ensure your solutions perform well and are cost effective.

Whilst migrating to a cloud service such as Microsoft Azure reduces the management overhead on IT departments, there is still a need to actively monitor, manage and control the service to ensure continues availability and controlled costs.

We offer an end to end monitoring and reporting service for your cloud environments.

Not ready for Azure or AWS?

At Central, we can offer dedicated hardware hosted in our Tier 3, ISO 27001 data centre.

This offers a piece of mind with retained asset ownership.

We can also offer Flexible, ‘elastic’ pay-per-use hosting solutions, leveraging the benefits of public cloud but in a contained environment.
