Federal Community Cloud For Government Organizations
"Cloud computing environments will dramatically accelerate and enhance government agency missions, opening the door to better decision making based on real-time data and laying a strong foundation for greater focus on innovation."
– Dr David McQueeney
IBM has launched a new Federal Community Cloud specifically designed to help federal government organizations respond to technology requirements more quickly. The secure, private cloud environment is part of IBM's established and dedicated Federal Data Centers (FDC) that provide secure and comprehensive certified computing capabilities to federal government clients.
IBM's Federal Community Cloud (FCC) will enable data and services to reside in secure, scalable data centers that can be quickly accessed by federal organizations at a fraction of the cost. The capabilities are dynamic and scalable to help organizations meet government consolidation policies mandated by Obama administration Chief Information Officer Vivek Kundra in February. Benefits include:
- Secure, private multi-tenant cloud designed to meet the demanding requirements of the federal government
- Flexibility to control technology environments and operation costs to match fluctuations in demand
- Reduction in costs by eliminating the need to own infrastructures or software licenses
- Faster implementation time of development and test environments, application and Web hosting and backup
- Access to distributed information and advanced analytics solutions via cloud-based applications
- Access to consulting services and Infrastructure as a Service, with plans to soon include Platform as a Service and Software as a Service offerings
