Unisys‘ work to help the National Archives and Record Administration migrate its infrastructure to a Google cloud environment was the company’s fourth project for an agency’s transition to the search giant’s platform, ZDNet reported Monday.
Heather Clancy writes Unisys has also helped the Energy Department, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and General Services Administration move to a Google cloud infrastructure.
For NARA, the company updated the agency’s email and collaboration tools and unified Google apps with ZL Technologies-developed archiving and records management services.
Steve Kousen, Unisys' vice president of cloud email and collaboration services, told ZDNet the National Archives integration aimed to secure records while expanding the federal employees access to digital information.
Unisys first tested the parameters with 100 users for three weeks, then added 10 percent of the agency's employees to the service and later accommodated the rest of the workforce, ZDNet reports.
Clancy writes the transition also covered the ExchangeMyMail.com service and aimed to extend applications to the BlackBerry operating system.
