CGI To Help EPA Move To Cloud Computing; Toni Townes-Whitley Comments

CGI Federal has won a three-year contract to help the Environmental Protection Agency shift most of its computing to a cloud environment, the company announced Tuesday.

The company received the $15 million contract from the EPA’s office of environmental information through a General Services Administration blanket purchase agreement.

In one year, the EPA hopes to move 20 percent of computing to the cloud and 30 percent in years two and three, said Toni Townes-Whitley, a senior vice president.

The EPA also aims to have 80 percent of computing in a cloud environment by 2015, the company said.

As the EPA’s external enterprise cloud provider, the company will provide the agency with hosting, virtualization, technical architecture and transition support.
