1901 Group, LLC has been awarded a 1-year prime contract to provide the Peace Corps with professional data center relocation support services to help prepare for cloud migration.
As part of the contract, which was awarded under the General Services Administration’s IT Schedule 70 contract vehicle, the 1901 Group will migrate Peace Corps’ systems, applications and data from its current legacy data center environment to Equinix’s colocation facility data center.
This way, the Peace Corps can securely access cloud service providers to relocate and move its mission critical workloads to the cloud. 1901 Group brings its engineering support and access to hybrid cloud services to the table, and is a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program authorized cloud service provider.
“We focus on providing several distinct and unique capabilities to supplement Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and other Platform as a Service (PaaS) offerings,” said Paul Wilkinson, executive vice president of corporate strategy and business development for 1901 group.
The company’s other services include software defined network architecture, data center buildout, equipment installation and configuration, application migration, infrastructure security and the development of disaster recovery in Microsoft Azure.
“We’re excited to support the Peace Corps data center as the end state will minimize downtime and maximize the reliability of the systems, applications, and data,” Wilkinson said.
