James W. Sheaffer of CSC

Computer Sciences Corporation recently released its infrastructure-as-a-service CloudCompute for Government system, which the company says is designed exclusively for U.S. federal agencies and government personnel.

The company said the multi-tenant community cloud was built under National Institute of Standards and Technology guidelines.

“This cloud offering addresses the federal agencies’ need to comply with security mandates and positions CSC for success in an emerging high-growth market segment,” said James W. Sheaffer, president of CSC’s north american public sector.

According to Dan Lee, product manager of CCFG, the system is quicker and more flexible than traditional private cloud services, and “specifically targeted for government agencies that require FISMA moderate and FISMA low system classification levels.”

According to the company, CCFG is protected by CSC’s holistic defense-in-depth security framework, providing physical and logical security. As part of the framework, CCFG centers are located and geographically dispersed around the U.S., which provides redundancy and recovery capabilities.

Lee said this is the first time CSC has used geographically distanced data centers to support cloud computing services.

Lee indicated that CSC will be targeting all agencies that fall under the FISMA classification levels and hopes to start on-boarding customers directly after CCFG’s release on Jan. 16.
