IceWEB Announces Partnership With Cloud Front Group to Provide Turnkey Big Data Analytics Solution to Federal DoD, Homeland Security and Intelligence Agencies

STERLING, VA--(Marketwire - Mar 30, 2012) - IceWEB, Inc.™ (OTCBB: IWEB), www.IceWEB.com, a leading provider of unified data storage appliances for cloud and virtual environments, today announced a partnership with Cloud Front Group Inc., providers of leading analytical technology delivered in the cloud to transform decision making in DoD, Homeland Security and Intelligence related agencies.

Under the terms of the partnership, Cloud Front Group will provide a turnkey Big Data analytics solution using Cloud Front Group's Big Data analytical expertise with Cloudera's Apache Hadoop-based software and IceWEB's Unified Data Storage Systems. Cloud Front Group acts as one with its Federal clients by providing an array of services that are tailored to achieve the mission of each agency.

In a White House announcement made earlier today, the DoD and several other agencies plan to spend over $200 million in Big Data Analytics initiatives in an effort to better manage, organize, and analyze the vast amounts of disparate data spread across government agency data centers.

"By the very nature of being unified, IceWEB storage solutions break down physical and virtual barriers separating the flow of data for meaningful analysis," said Steven Toole, IceWEB's Chief Marketing Officer. "Having IceWEB's single platform to store, manage and access all types of data -- both structured and unstructured -- across any network protocol, makes it possible to obtain the benefits of big data analytics. Our partners at Cloud Front Group are experts at implementing big data solutions and gleaning valuable insights from data needed to satisfy mission objectives."

"We are pleased to leverage IceWEB's unified storage systems as a key component of our big data solution for federal agencies," said John S. Mackay, Cloud Front Group CEO. "We look forward to introducing IceWEB's proven unified data storage systems to address big data initiatives among our intelligence and warfighter customers that have traditionally addressed static, mobile and cloud-based storage requirements with disparate solutions. Implementing a single platform for all storage requirements is a key component to realizing the tremendous benefits of big data analytics."
