Government Cloud: Press Release

GTSI Forms Strategic Relationship with Terremark to Deliver Cloud for Govt

Solution allows IT infrastructure to respond in real-time to government needs

GTSI Corp., an IT infrastructure solutions and services provider to government, on Thursday announced a strategic relationship with Terremark Worldwide, a global provider of IT infrastructure services to deliver Enterprise Cloud Solutions to federal, state, and local government. The relationship will also allow GTSI to expand its cloud computing infrastructure offerings and immediately increase the availability of enterprise cloud-based solutions to government agencies through the Solutions for Enterprise Wide Procurement (SEWP) and Information Technology Enterprise Solutions (ITES) 2H contract vehicles.

The Cloud Computing Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) model offered by GTSI and Terremark allows agencies to address increasing demands on government IT to deliver services more effectively, reduce energy usage, facilitate Telework, and decrease operational costs while maintaining security. This new approach enables agencies to:

  • More efficiently share and use IT resources such as compute, storage, and network capacity;
  • Rapidly deploy on-demand capacity to support business needs;
  • Increase flexibility by easy access to bursting capacity during spikes in web traffic;
  • Offer cost management transparency; and
  • Provide a high level of service and security.

"The shift to cloud computing allows agencies to harness the power of the Internet to improve services to end-users and citizens, while freeing up scarce capital, staff resources, and IT assets for mission-critical investments," said Mohamed Elrefai, GTSI VP Enterprise Solutions Group and Marketing. "Our approach to cloud computing permits agencies to deliver IT services addressing the agency's mission while remaining in full control of their IT environment. We're excited to partner with Terremark to deliver secure, cloud-based solutions tailored to government customers who are looking to take advantage of shared, on-demand, and self-service provisioning infrastructure services. We're also delighted that our partner, Terremark, is recognized by industry and Gartner as a leader in web hosting and cloud infrastructure services."
