Peraton, a Veritas Capital portfolio company, has acquired ViON’s cloud business, including its as-a-service portfolio, to expand information technology infrastructure offerings to government clients.
The company said Wednesday ViON’s as-a-service IT portfolio includes more than 25 offerings such as artificial intelligence, storage, compute, networking and high-performance computing solutions for federal and state government customers.
“With these additional capabilities, along with new employees who share our values and customers’ missions, we will solve the biggest challenges facing government and we’ll do it in a way that makes the best use of their resources,” said Stu Shea, president, chairman and CEO of Peraton and a five-time Wash100 awardee.
“We’re confident that we’ve found the right partner in Peraton and that the pairing of ViON’s Cloud Services and Peraton’s strategic support resources will be of great benefit to our customers’ future growth,” Frana continued.
Recently, Peraton has been awarded multiple contracts to support public sector IT modernization initiatives, including a potential $979 million task order to strengthen information capabilities for the DOD’s U.S. Central Command as well as a contract to support the Department of Veterans Affairs’ cloud-based storage and computing functions.
Six-time Wash100 Award recipient Ramzi Musallam, CEO and managing partner of Veritas, said Peraton’s growth initiatives over the past year are consistent with Veritas’ approach to “transforming leading government technology companies to better serve the complex needs of their customers.”
