Carahsoft Teams With Virtustream to Deliver Enterprise-Class Cloud Solutions to the Public Sector

Government Agencies Benefit From Enhanced Security and Efficiency While Transitioning to the Cloud

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - July 26, 2016) - Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider today announced a go-to-market relationship with Virtustream, the enterprise-class cloud software and services provider and EMC Federation Company. Carahsoft will serve as federal distributor and master aggregator for Virtustream's products, providing proactive sales and marketing support and making Virtustream's cloud solutions and services available to the public sector via its General Services Administration (GSA) schedule and contracts with the NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWPV) and US Army ITES SW.

"Our strategic relationship with Carahsoft further reinforces Virtustream's commitment to the public sector market," said Joe Moye, senior vice president for public sector at Virtustream. "As public sector organizations accelerate their digital transformation initiatives, Carahsoft offers us a powerful new channel to make it simpler for federal, state and local governments to procure and benefit from Virtustream's FedRAMP-certified cloud services and risk management framework software."

As government agencies continue to transition to the cloud, they are embracing more advanced capabilities, including improved system and service virtualization, the ability to migrate data and services between shared clouds, the expansion of infrastructure-based services and the emergence of the hybrid cloud as the platform of choice. Virtustream's enterprise-class cloud solutions and xStream® cloud management software easily manage the heavy demands of complex, multi-tenant IT environments, while complying with the highest security and compliance standards.

Virtustream meets mandatory requirements such as SSAE16, ISAE3402, PCI-DSS 2.0, FISMA, IS0 27001-2005, ISO 9001-2008, HIPAA/HITECH and other leading cloud certifications and compliance frameworks including FedRAMP P-ATO via the Joint Authorization Board (JAB). Virtustream also offers an on-premises solution for federal, state and local governments that leverages the stringent security aspects of the FedRAMP offering.

Further, Virtustream's enterprise-class cloud software uses a consumption-based pricing model which helps government agencies prevent waste and lower costs, while still providing them with the guaranteed high quality performance they expect from their applications. This is enabled by Virtustream µVM® technology, a precise planning and billing unit that enables users to pay only for the compute, memory, network and storage resources that they actually consume versus an allocation billing model.

"We are excited to expand our cloud computing portfolio with Virtustream's FedRAMP certified Cloud Services," said Craig P. Abod, president, Carahsoft Technology. "Security is always top of mind for our government customers and resellers, and Virtustream's cloud solutions meet and exceed all federal security and compliance requirements."

Virtustream's enterprise-class cloud solutions are available immediately via Carahsoft's GSA Schedule No. GS-35F-0119Y and SEWP contract NNG15SC03B and NNG15SC27B.
