N3/HSCN Connectivity for Public Cloud

Redcentric’s fully assured N3/HSCN connectivity for Public Cloud enables health and social care organisations as well as ISVs and Systems Integrators to fully leverage the agility, elasticity, innovation, scalability and security inherent in UK region hyper-scale Public Cloud environments.

Following the Government Digital Service’s effective green light to public sector use of the Public Cloud at the beginning of this year, health and care service providers and clinical application ISVs are keen to exploit these Cloud platforms to deliver their efficiency, improvement, innovation and transformation outcomes.

Redcentric’s N3/HSCN Connectivity for Public Cloud provides resilient, secure, incrementally scalable governed access for OFFICIAL workloads in Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform.

Assurance starts with a managed on-boarding process transitioning into continuous governance across implementation, on-going delivery and support. The service focus is all about optimal agility, speed, security, mitigated risk and sustainable cost, lifting the technical burden and leaving users free to improve care quality, patient experience and clinical application development.

Redcentric can also offer additional technical consulting, support and knowledge transfer around Public Cloud, from the design and deployment of hybrid Cloud strategies through to the end-to-end management of the Public Cloud platform, addressing the skills gap that is a potential barrier to adoption and realisation of Public Cloud benefits.

Black Pear Quote

“Kudos to Redcentric for being the only provider to have already recognised the need for Public Cloud to N3/HSCN connectivity when we came calling, and to make possible what was a key strategic and operational advance for Black Pear. Praise too for their very professional, straightforward approach, from the clarity and precision of the costings to the on-time, to-plan deployment via AWS Direct Connect.” Dunmail Hodkinson, CTO at Black Pear Software
