Description of the contract
Services available on the G-Cloud framework are presented to buyers through the CloudStore, which is a platform allowing users to search for services, create long-lists of potential suppliers and services, and filter these down to short-lists. The present CloudStore, the third built since G-Cloud was launched, needs to be updated and replaced for a number of reasons: ? The current version of CloudStore is insufficiently robust to accommodate GDS’s future roll-out plans that would lead to increased traffic and usage (targeting availability of 99%) ? The CloudStore has been successful, and has to cope with a growing volume of data beyond initial predictions; it is nearing capacity and design limits ? The G-Cloud team intends to extend the feature set of – and broaden the number of frameworks covered by – the CloudStore (it will become the Government Digital Marketplace); it is perceived that this work would be risky to undertake with the current codebase, and may not be technically possible.
