CohesiveFT Finalist in 2013 Storage, Virtualization, Cloud (SVC) Awards

Public Cloud Project Supporting Energy Savings Trust Shortlisted for Public Sector Virtualization Project of the Year

London, UK – 15 October 2013 –  CohesiveFT, a cloud networking and image management software firm, have been named a finalist in the 2013 Storage, Virtualization, Cloud (SVC) Awards. The project, in support of the Energy Savings Trust, is shortlisted in the  Public Sector Virtualization Project of the Year. The award is determined by popular vote, available here:

The Energy Savings Trust (EST) needed a business intelligence system to aggregate their household energy usage data from the entire UK housing stock in the IBM SmartCloud. With Assimil8 and CohesiveFT, EST was able to:

  • Deploy IBM Cognos in IBM SmartCloud with VNS3 software defined networking
  • Securely connect and encrypt all data in transit in to and from the cloud.
  • Use the cloud as the most ecologically sound way of rolling out software, with a dramatically reduced carbon footprint.

Will Rivers, the Housing Data Manager for Energy Saving Trust wrote, “The services we provide should support initiatives such as the Green Deal and make it possible to achieve energy efficiency targets faster and at less cost.”

EST were able to organise and visualise twenty years of information, or nearly 250 million data points relating to 25 million domestic properties with the compute capacity of the public cloud. EST functions are now accessible at any time, from anywhere, yet still retain all the functionality of a traditional enterprise level BI solution. The project also earned Runner Up in the 2013 DCS Awards for Public Cloud Project of the Year.


The Storage, Virtualization, Cloud (SVC) Awards reward the products, projects and services as well as honour companies and teams operating in the cloud, virtualization and storage sectors. The SVC Awards recognise the achievements of end-users, channel partners and vendors alike and in the case of the end-user category there will also be an award made to the supplier who nominated the winning organisation.
