NJVC, an information technology (IT) solutions provider headquartered in Northern Virginia, introduces Cloudcuity, a new framework for the company's cloud service offerings to help customers transition their technology applications to a cloud computing environment while cutting spending, improving process and billing efficiencies and complying with a myriad of regulatory and security requirements.
"Cloudcuity is not your typical cloud service," noted Jody Tedesco, NJVC president. "This family of NJVC cloud capabilities, beginning with the Cloudcuity Management Portal, is designed for technology decision makers who must deploy IT applications to the cloud with transparency for managing risk and governance under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) and the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA)."
The first service being introduced under the framework is the Cloudcuity Management Portal-the first commercial, multi-cloud broker service specifically designed to support federal government customers.
As Tedesco explained, "NJVC is partnering with Gravitant to provide federal departments and agencies with on-demand, one-stop-shopping for vendor-neutral, secure cloud solutions that enable customers to test, configure, provision and manage cloud services from start to finish using a single online interface."
The underlying technology behind the Cloudcuity Management Portal is a unified cloud lifecycle management platform, cloudMatrixTM, created and powered by Gravitant. The platform allows users to try, design and price an array of services from multiple cloud providers before placing an order or spending any money. Users can compare key differences and features among cloud service providers, such as security, service level agreements (SLAs) and cost. By testing applications for suitability in the cloud, the typical costs and inefficiencies associated with migrating untested applications to the cloud are alleviated.
