What we do
We streamline access to public cloud hosting in the B.C. government.
To support you, we provide accelerated access to policy-compliant cloud services for hosting digital applications and data in the B.C. government. We also provide regular training, virtual events and technical documentation on our products. We don’t guide you in your own application development, that’s up to you!
Responsibilities in the public cloud are shared between your team, our team and the cloud service providers. Familiarize yourself with our shared responsibility model to learn how we work together in the public cloud.
