NJVC and Gravitant announced this week that both companies have formed a new strategic alliance to launch a co-branded self-service cloud portal later this spring designed specifically to support the federal government’s planning, provisioning and management of cloud services across multiple providers.
The partnership will leverage the resources of NJVC’s vast IT solutions with Gravitant’s cloud brokerage and management solutions to allow federal agencies to access cloud services across multiple cloud providers through the self-service portal.
“NJVC government customers will now have one centralized place for all their cloud needs, and can rest assured that the underlying tools of the soon-to-be-announced portal will constantly optimize the cloud in their favor,” said Kevin L. Jackson, NJVC vice president and general manager, cloud services.
Government customers will now have the opportunity to access existing Gravitant infrastructure-as-a service products (e.g., cloudScreen™ and cloudMatrix™), while NJVC will be the official supplier of the portal to federal customers and offer product-related consulting services.
The portal will also provide cost saving measures including application screening, cloud architecture design, capacity planning, auto provisioning, consolidated billing, and command and control.
Dr. Ilyas Iyoob, Gravitant director, advanced analytics, noted minimized operational and financial risks to federal clients.
“Now CIOs and CTOs will be able to monitor the entire IT infrastructure on a ‘single pane of glass’ and leverage the power of predictive analytics to identify and resolve potential bottlenecks ahead of time.”
