It takes in public, private, hybrid and community cloud, co-location and transition services, with the suppliers named being Brightsolid, CAE Technology Services, DataVita, Insight Direct, Iomart, Nigsun, NVT Group, Proact, Pulsant, Six Degrees, Storm ID, Sungard, UK Cloud and Velocity.
The Scottish Government said the majority of suppliers host their services in Scotland and that all have third party cyber security accreditation.
