RESTON, VA – May 30, 2018 — /BackupReview.info/ — Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider™, today announced that the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has named Carahsoft as a facilitating partner for an enterprise-wide blanket purchasing agreement (BPA) through the U.S. military’s Enterprise Software Initiative (ESI). Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as a distributor for software and services from Red Hat, Inc., providing government customers and reseller partners with the world’s leading open source solutions.

The five-year BPA is open for ordering by the DoD and related agencies on a world-wide basis and provides Red Hat software, maintenance, support and training for DoD, Intelligence Communities and Coast Guard activities worldwide. The agreement is effective through April 1, 2023 and carries a ceiling amount of $125 million.

Carahsoft will support Red Hat’s blanket purchase agreement award by leveraging its partner enablement, sales, marketing and contract management capabilities. In addition to other activities, the company will provide regular training webcasts and on-site trainings covering contract terms, new software and updates, as well as a dedicated web resource for the contract and relevant information.

“We are pleased to have been awarded our third consecutive Red Hat ESI BPA,” said Natalie Gregory, Vice President of Open Source Solutions at Carahsoft, which has served as Red Hat’s master government aggregator and distributor for more than 13 years. “The DoD continues to expand its implementation of Red Hat’s enterprise open source technologies which are secure, scalable and cost-effective. Red Hat’s solutions also prevent vendor lock-in, making them the perfect match to support the DoD’s and our reseller partners’ unique mission needs, use cases and changing deployments.”

The products offered through the BPA include Red Hat® Enterprise Linux®, the premier operating system for open source computing on seven system architectures. Other product offerings include Red Hat® JBoss® Enterprise Application Platform, a platform for security, performance and scalability across on-premise and cloud environments; Red Hat® OpenShift, a container application platform for cloud and on-premise environments; Red Hat® Mobile Application Platform, a platform for the development, integration, deployment and management of apps; Red Hat® Gluster Storage, a scalable software-defined storage (SDS) platform; Red Hat® Ceph Storage, a scalable storage solution of cloud infrastructure, data analytics, media repositories and backup and restore systems; Red Hat® Cloud Infrastructure, an open, private Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud development solution; and Red Hat management subscription solutions.

DoD ESI is an official initiative sponsored by the DoD Chief Information Officer (CIO) to lead in the establishment and management of enterprise Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) IT agreements, assets and policies.
