GEN Cloud - Advanced Cloud Services

Affordable and Flexible for any size business

GEN was the first company in the world to offer cloud hosted file storage back in 1991, and I can tell you it really wasn't that popular back then. In the early 2010's everyone wanted to cloud host everything, not for any specific technical reason but because everyone else was doing it, and over the last few years we're seeing many companies reverting back to on premise infrastructure in the wake of a few horror stories that brought some businesses to their knees.


Hosting in the Cloud is a decision that needs to be taken on a technical basis, and not just because the media reports it as the future. As, one of the worlds oldest cloud providers I can promise you that we are in a good position to advise you accordingly.

Virtualisation

Virtualisation simply means that your server is in the cloud, the cloud means our UK based green powered data centre. We can provide a wide range of options, from small single server instances with a handful of cores up to multi-server arrangements with 100+ cores.

Containerisation

Containerisation is a relatively new concept in cloud provisioning, and unlike virtualisation it is much more lightweight, allowing pre-packaged services to be spun up quickly and easily. If, for example you needed a cloud provisioned mysql database, you could virtualise it, and for a high load application that would be the way to go, but for lesser loads containerisation is cheaper and quicker.

Managed

There are cloud providers who will give you a linux virtual server for £1 a month. You can't do much with it, but its there. We are not a £1 a month provider, simply because we don't host your data in the far east, and we don't just leave you with it. Our USP is that we manage our customers, and that means we'll handle backups, patching, and security of your cloud presence, and always be here 24/7 to help you.

24/7 Expert Support

If there was one aspect that sets us aside from the competition, its support. We won't leave you hanging, and we won't stand whilst you have issues. If you need support, its yours, and its free. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and we have a range of Service Level Agreements (SLA's) if you need that level of support guaranteed.
