ABOUT CLOVER

In 2010, a team of independent IT consultants commenced development of the “Clover index” benchmarking standard, with the core objective that it would ultimately fill the need for a standard mechanism by which Cloud Computing Providers offering Private Cloud IaaS would eventually be quantitatively compared.

Today the Clover index is the UK’s #1 independent Cloud Vendor Ratings benchmarking standard. To the best of our knowledge it is the only system of its type, and it has already become the ubiquitous benchmark for “like for like” comparison of the Best Cloud Services Providers offering services to mid-tier clients in the UK Finance Sector. 

If you seek to cost effectively and independently compare Cloud Computing Service Providers, the Clover index is the solution.

The core value proposition of the Clover index is to provide semi-automated access to independently developed, unbiased expert analysis, and (under the terms of a strict NDA) more than 300 data points held and updated for each of the more than 70 Cloud Computing Vendors who have been analysed to date.

By doing so, we aim to very cost-effectively aid small to medium Enterprise Clients to develop a shortlist of the “Best Fit, Best Practice” IT vendors in the UK market to meet their needs.

Google Search Cloud Computing Companies UK, Cloud Computing London or Cloud Service Providers UK. All roads lead to the Clover index.

OUR MISSION

At Clover we understand the importance of why regulated firms have to ensure their operations are not put at risk by outsourcing key elements, like technology, to partners.

Our business has been built to be the trusted advisor and educator to regulated firms who want to embrace the benefits of the Cloud whilst maintaining their regulatory obligations.

Our mission at Clover is to become the definitive reference source for fact based, independent comparison and pre-qualification of Cloud Service Providers into the UK Finance Sector.

Ultimately by providing independent, transparent analysis against best-practice standards and as a result of the fact-based competition it creates. Clover’s goal is to drive an overall improvement in the quality of Cloud solutions provided to the UK Finance Sector.
