The General Services Administration and Dell EMC have reached a governmentwide enterprise agreement to facilitate the procurement of the company’s virtual computing environment platforms to help federal agencies advance data center modernization.
The agreement allows federal, local, state and tribal government agencies to place an order for Dell EMC’s VxRail products at tiered discounts through Carahsoft Technology’s spot on GSA’s IT Schedule 70 contract, the agency said Thursday.
Alan Thomas, commissioner of GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service, said the agreement seeks to reduce duplication in the procurement process.
Carahsoft said Thursday Dell EMC’s VxRail is a category management offering designed to support virtual desktop infrastructure, hybrid cloud and other virtualized workloads and applications and help agencies comply with the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative and the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act.
The agreement for Dell EMC platforms marks Carahsoft’s sixth category management award from GSA.
