SDA/GIDE provide fully managed Internet and Intranet website services.
Our customers include:
- Department for Education and Skills (DfES)
- Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted)
- Department for Work and Pensions (DWP)
- Department for Trade and Industry (DTI)
We make extensive use of Open Source software, which enables websites to be deployed without any requirement for expensive third-party software licenses.
Examples of such software include the Linux operating system, PostgreSQL relational database, Apache web server and the Perl and PHP scripting languages.
As part of a fully managed service we provide secure certificate renewals and website statistics.
We also provide SSH/SSL services to our servers based on IP address to enable secure transfer of data.
