Dell has launched a new cloud computing portfolio that aims to help federal government customers meet criteria set by the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program approval process and the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
Dell Cloud for U.S. Government also contains options for customers to have single- and multi-tenant environments, as well as have an on-premise cloud to act as their own service provider, the company said Tuesday.
“We've applauded the U.S. government's recent effort to increase cloud adoption while also addressing key agency concerns — especially as they relate to security,” said George Newstrom, Dell Services vice president and general manager for the U.S. public sector.
“Government customers shouldn't have to make a choice between solutions compliant to their standards and those that will meet or even boost the performance they've come to expect from their IT,” he added.
The portfolio contains options for infrastructure as a service, platform as a service and software as a service. “This is a highly customizable solution that we’re offering to government customers, dependent on needs that specific customers have,” said Louis Matrone, Dell’s general manager for Dell Services for the Federal Government.
Dell also intends for its cloud offering to meet Defense Department compliance standards under the Federal Information Security Act and the Pentagon’s Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process environments.
