Expanded Relationship With Carpathia(TM) Will Deliver Hybrid Cloud Service for Government Customers, Based on FedRAMP Security Standards
PALO ALTO, CA – Mar 4, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, today announced its bid to secure FedRAMP Authority to Operate for a new enterprise hybrid cloud service offering, VMware vCloud® Government Service provided by Carpathia™. VMware is collaborating with Carpathia, a trusted cloud operator and leading provider of cloud services and managed hosting for government agencies, to bring this service to market.
Through this expanded relationship, VMware and Carpathia will combine efforts to deliver a hybrid cloud service to U.S. Federal government customers following the same hybrid cloud architecture as VMware vCloud® Hybrid Service™. The core of VMware vCloud Government Service is based on the award-winning VMware vSphere®, which is widely used by Federal agencies to optimize and manage their data centers. VMware vCloud Government Service will provide the security and compliance assurance of FedRAMP authorization by using Carpathia’s extensive experience delivering compliant solutions for government agencies.
“VMware has helped Federal agencies optimize and manage their data center infrastructure for more than 14 years, and helping them to now use that infrastructure in the cloud is a natural extension of our core business,” said Lynn Martin, vice president, Public Sector, VMware. “More importantly, because so many Federal agencies are already using VMware solutions, it’s a natural evolution of what they are already doing. VMware is committed to empowering these agencies to use the cloud to meet their line of business and mission requirements rapidly, easily and confidently.”
The Fastest Path to Cloud for Government Agencies
“Carpathia has had a longstanding relationship with VMware, and we are very excited to take our collaboration to the next level,” said Peter Weber, CEO, Carpathia. “With the combination of two technology leaders, Carpathia and VMware, government agencies can count on a hybrid cloud built on best-of-breed technologies with which government agencies are familiar, making it simple to extend their existing data center infrastructure and applications to a FedRAMP compliant public cloud.”
FedRAMP is a standardized approach to cloud security assessments, authorization and monitoring that is designed to save the government money, time and staff by eliminating redundant agency security assessments. Through FedRAMP’s leveraged security authorizations, federal agencies can also drastically reduce the time it takes to adopt new IT capabilities.
