We’re Cloudserve

We’ve been providing expert, tailored, managed and fully supported cloud IT
solutions to small and medium businesses just like yours since 2009.

About Us

We deliver high performance, reliable, secure, and cost effective cloud computing and cloud services to small and medium size businesses. Cloudserve was founded in 2009 by Richard Swainston, the current Managing Director, following a successful career in corporate IT Management and as a Solution Consultant for two of London’s largest managed IT service providers. We’re head-quartered in Poole, UK, with a further sales and administration office in London.

Our cloud services are delivered utilising our fully owned and managed infrastructure located in multiple UK data centres, with our core infrastructure located in the largest and most advanced data centre facility in the South West. Cloudserve currently provides a highly personalised service to over 1000 business users over a range of business sectors, throughout the UK and internationally.

We eliminate the need for businesses to own, manage and maintain PCs, servers, software and telephony systems – instead, our cloud-based services can be accessed securely from anywhere, over standard Internet connections. Organisations only pay for the resources they actually use, based on their business needs, and can scale their services up and down as their business environment changes.

We manage a range of business types and their end-users on secure and private cloud-based infrastructure. Our experienced implementation and support staff are on-hand to help our customers 24×7 and to assist end-users fully utilise on-demand services such as hosted desktop, private cloud, software as a service, Hosted Exchange and SharePoint, storage, virtualisation and much more.


What our clients said

“I have been very impressed with the professionalism, planning and project execution ability of Cloudserve. They fully took on-board that we run a 24 x 7 operation and our first priority is to the Hotel Guests. We have succeeded in considerably improving our IT Systems with minimal disruption and the feedback from my staff on Cloudserve’s ability to support and maintain our systems has been excellent. We now have a solution which supports the business moving forward and a trusted supplier than can help us realise the benefits of new technology as it becomes appropriate for our use.”.- John Butterworth - FJB Group CEO
“The solution was exactly what we were looking for and provided the features we required which were just simply not available via mass market online file storage solutions. The ability to fully test and trial the solution at no cost with no commitment was great. We got a chance to prove the solution would work for us before making any commitment.”- Peru Consulting
