Peraton has won an award from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to provide data center and cloud management services.
“CDC’s mission, especially during the ongoing pandemic, is critical to protecting American citizens from health, safety and security threats in the United States and abroad,” said Tarik Reyes, president of Peraton’s Global Health & Financial Solutions sector.
Peraton will provide and manage hybrid private and public cloud services and broker them through an integrated self-service portal. The company will manage services from multiple CDC-contracted cloud service providers, facilitate the provisioning of new cloud services, and provide the management and monitoring of the services.
“This award gives us the opportunity to support CDC’s cloud strategy and further enable CDC’s core mission,” Reyes said. “Working closely with our customer, we will help them realize their long-term goal of advancing IT capabilities through modernization, innovation and cloud-smart application migration.”
Peraton also will be responsible for providing, operating and managing private cloud infrastructure services including compute, storage and backup, internal data center network and cloud management.
The contract has a ceiling value of up to $60 million over five years.
