UK-based cloud managed service provider Six Degrees, has announced that is has been chosen by AvantiGas, an international supplier of liquefied petroleum gases (LPG) and part of the UGI Corporation, to build and host its data and IT services on a multi-cloud platform across 16 European countries.
This hybrid methodology sits across Six Degrees’ UK data centres and European Azure data centres supported by the Microsoft platform. It will enable AvantiGas to achieve its goal of operating at the highest level of service while giving customers up-to-the-minute information on deliveries.
Six Degrees’ multi-cloud solution consists of four main components: managed workspace, managed hosting, voice and data, and security across Six Degrees’ data centres and the Microsoft Azure platform. Within these four components, Six Degrees supplies and manages disaster recovery and backup, voice over IP, licensing, communications, migration services and interconnections between Azure and Six Degrees data centre platforms. The solution is designed to enable AvantiGas to focus more fully on its fuel distribution service rather than managing the IT.
