Chippenham, Wiltshire, 11th August 2016 – Arkivum, the leading provider of managed data preservation and archiving solutions, is pleased to announce that its range of data archiving and digital preservation solutions is available via G-Cloud 8, the government procurement framework used by organisations in the UK public sector to identify and source cloud-based technology and services.

Having a number of Arkivum’s services listed under the G-Cloud 8 digital marketplace framework simplifies the procurement process for Arkivum’s clients through the use of pre-agreed pricing, contract, and commercial terms and conditions. Within the range of services provided through G-Cloud 8, Arkivum has listed Perpetua, the company’s recently launched end-to-end preservation solution for preserving, managing and accessing digital assets, on the framework.

By joining G-Cloud 8, Arkivum becomes part of a group of businesses that provide cloud-based services to government departments, agencies and other public sector organisations. Using frameworks such as this enables Arkivum’s customers to specify, procure, deploy and go-live with long-term data archiving and preservation solutions in a matter of weeks.

Guy Yaniv, CEO of Arkivum, comments, “The G-Cloud framework is important to us here at Arkivum because we value our public sector customers and we want to do all we can to simplify the procurement process for them. We know that government departments and agencies have significant digital preservation and access needs and having our Perpetua solution listed under G-Cloud 8 will help them achieve their goals in a simple and straightforward way.”
