Smartronix Announces the Award of DOD On-Site Managed Services
Hollywood, MD – 18 January 2017 – Smartronix, a global
information technology (IT) and engineering solutions provider,
today announced their selection by the Department of Defense
(DoD) to provide On-Site Managed Services (OMS). This
competitive task order was awarded under the National Institutes
of Health Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment
Center's CIO-SP3 government-wide acquisition contract. OMS will
provide secure, on-premises cloud capabilities, such as
Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service
(PaaS), for the DoD and approved mission partners. The task
order will be completed by Smartronix's Cloud Assured™ business
unit in collaboration with the Dell Technologies family of
"We are excited to bring this game-changing, on-premises
secure cloud capability to the DoD and mission partners.
Smartronix's cloud success with commercial and federal civilian
clients is a direct result of our support of DoD enterprise
network architecture, management, migration, and defense,"
said John Parris, CEO, Smartronix."We are proud to have the
opportunity to leverage best practices developed across our
business base to provide 'as-a-service' offerings to the
Smartronix, in collaboration with its partners in the Dell
Technologies family of businesses—including Dell EMC,
Virtustream, and VMware—will develop and deliver this uniquely
dedicated solution, which will include Cloud Foundry, the
industry-standard platform for cloud native applications. Dell
EMC will provide essential compute, storage, and networking
solutions. Virtustream will provide private on-premises
enterprise-class IaaS technology, and VMware will integrate its
infrastructure solutions into the service.
Smartronix's OMS solution, which will be developed by the team,
offers the DoD a major leap forward in application modernization
while driving efficiencies and cost savings via a secure, fully
managed, on-premises, cloud infrastructure. Once deployed, this
DoD community cloud will be capable of hosting Impact-Level 4/5
(IL4/5) NIPRNet workloads from within DoD datacenters; and it
will eventually include Impact Level 6 (IL6) (SIPRNet),
eliminating the need for a Cloud Access Point (CAP) and reducing
latency for mission-critical workloads.
In a departure from traditional models, OMS will provide
"true" consumption-based billing IaaS via the
Virtustream platform. OMS will be built upon industry standards
that leverage the existing knowledge base of the DoD cyber
workforce. OMS also will include Cloud Foundry PaaS with the
goal of application accreditation within weeks for re-use
throughout the DoD. Once deployed and accredited within DoD
datacenters, OMS will have inherent physical security and cyber
defenses provided by the DoD as well as enterprise-grade service
level agreements (SLAs).
