The Overview

The Prolinx Platform as a Service (PaaS) provides Operating Systems Environment (OSE) on top of the base layer Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering. This includes the configuration, hardening and support of the full OSE which includes anti-virus, patching, monitoring, identify and many other services. This means the customer only has to be concerned about the application layer and will get full support from the Prolinx engineering team to on board, configure and integrate their applications. This also includes fully managed container capabilities ensuring customers can fully embrace DevOps approaches without worrying about the underlying platforms.

SUITED FOR – Customers whose business value is at the application and service level and have limited resources available to provide the design, develop, deploy and support of the virtual workloads up to and including the operating system and/or development platform.


CONNECTIVITY TO – MOD Core Network (Official Sensitive) (MCN(OS)), Public Sector Network (PSN) and Public Sector Network Police (PSN-P), MOD Core Network (Secret) (MCN(S)).

Prolinx PaaS is offered under the assumption that the OS is deployed on the Prolinx IaaS offerings and utilising the standard catalogue items (small, medium, large or extra-large Virtual Machines). These are purchased in the offered environments of Test & Development (T&D), Pre-Production (Pre Prod), Disaster Recovery (DR) and Production (Prod)/User Acceptance Testing (UAT).

Our high-performance Security and Information Event Management (SIEM) solution provides real-time situational awareness, combined with robust OS security patching, latest AV and Malware protection ensures the platform is secure and stable.

The final build will be hardened by Prolinx technical engineering staff prior to consultation and acceptance testing with the customer to ensure all products are consistent and supportable.
