Seagate Technology has announced the formation of a new business unit that will be addressing the big data technology needs of U.S. government customers. The newly formed entity will be called Seagate Government Solutions.
Former Lockheed Martin and Vencore executive, Deb Oliver has been named President of Seagate Government Solutions. Paul Kaminski, former U.S. Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Technology has been named Chairman of the Board.
“Federal agencies are under increasing pressure to efficiently manage and store growing data, and ensure it stays in the right hands,” Oliver said. “At the same time, they’re faced with unique challenges that come with security requirements and budget limitations. Seagate Government Solutions’ investment in these organizations provides them with innovative, end-to-end HPC technology specifically tailored for their needs.”
“Seagate Government Solutions will make it possible for the federal government to excel in the latest technology engineered for HPC, despite – and perhaps because of – its rigorous security demands,” Kaminski said. “This is crucial in the era of Big Data, and the group will strive to achieve this by forging new partnerships and driving new innovations.”
Seagate Government Solutions will focus on the federal government’s big data, high performance computing and security needs. The new group will be using its high tech storage solution engineered for High Performance Computing (HPC) delivering security, performance, complexity reduction and risk mitigation.
