AT&T‘s government solutions business has received authorization from the General Services Administration to offer cloud computing-based storage services to federal agencies, the company announced Thursday.
The company will provide its Synaptic Storage-as-a-Service system through the agency’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service blanket purchase agreement.
“With its ‘Cloud First’ policy, the Obama administration signaled its strong support for the cloud and the powerful benefits this platform provides federal agencies,” said Thomas Harvey, AT&T senior vice president for government solutions.
Harvey added agencies will use Synaptic to move data and applications to the cloud, as well as for managing capital expenses.
Federal agencies can acquire the Synaptic services at AT&T Internet data centers within the continental U.S.
