Partnership Will Bring Public Sector Customers Flexibility and Scalability for Private and Hybrid Clouds
HERNDON, Virginia – June 5, 2012 – DLT Solutions, a leading value-added reseller in government information technology (IT) software and services, and Eucalyptus Systems, creator of the most widely deployed on-premise cloud computing platform, today announced a partnership that will enable public sector organizations to create their own on-premise Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud platforms. Through this partnership government agencies will be able to quickly deploy private and hybrid clouds by leveraging their existing IT infrastructure.
Eucalyptus delivers an enterprise-class, open source IaaS cloud platform for government agencies that require feature-rich and highly available private and hybrid clouds. It uses existing infrastructure to create a scalable, secure web services layer that abstracts compute, network and storage to offer IaaS. Eucalyptus takes advantage of modern infrastructure virtualization software to create elastic pools that can be dynamically scaled up or down depending on application workloads. Eucalyptus web services are uniquely designed for hybrid clouds using the Amazon Web Services (AWS) API. The benefits are highly efficient scalability, increased trust and control for IT as a Service. Additional information is available in Eucalyptus’ recent white paper – "Turning Months into Minutes with Eucalyptus."
"The cloud is becoming increasingly important for Government’s data center operations and consolidation initiatives. Developing key partnerships with leading cloud computing companies like Eucalyptus is critical for creating greater flexibility and scalability for our customer’s cloud deployments," said Brian Strosser, SVP strategy and business development at DLT Solutions. "It is critical for us to provide our customers with the ability to leverage cloud computing behind their own firewalls."
"The demand for on-premise cloud deployments in the Federal market has increased exponentially in the past twelve months," explained Said Ziouani, executive vice president of worldwide sales at Eucalyptus. "DLT Solutions’ deep expertise and history in dealing with large, sophisticated IT infrastructures will help us meet the needs of today’s government agencies. This partnership further validates the technical superiority of Eucalyptus’ software and continuing leadership in the private cloud sector."
