AWS, CircleCI Forge Cloud Application Modernization Partnership

CircleCI, a San Francisco-based continuous integration and delivery platforms provider, and Amazon Web Services teamed up to help federal agencies using the AWS GovCloud platform advance the modernization of their application development workflows, TechCrunch reported Tuesday.

“What this means is that it allows us to run our server offering, which is our on-prem offering, and our government customers can run that on dedicated pure cloud resource [on AWS GovCloud],” CircleCI CEO Jim Rose told the publication.

GovCloud is a single-tenant cloud platform that allows agencies to develop cloud tools that are compliant with the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program.

“What GovCloud allows us to do is now provide that same level of security and service for government customers that wanted us to do so in an on prem environment in a dedicated single tenant environment [in the cloud],” Rose said.
