The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is going with Dell for its cloud services upgrade as part of President Obama’s cloud-first initiative. In addition, the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the General Services Administration (GSA) has chosen Dell to provide those agencies with IT services and solutions worth up to $22 billion.
For the NRC, Dell will install an on-premises, federal government compliant private cloud. Dell designed the cloud solution specifically for the NRC. Through the private cloud deployment process, Dell Services Federal Government will help the NRC consolidate data centers and improve its IT services.
In addition to Dell Services’ private cloud installation for NRC, Dell currently supports the NRC Office of Information Services and all NRC users, including data center operations and other information technology services at the NRC headquarters and NRC regional offices across the United States, under a contract awarded in 2011.
The DHS award was made as a part of the DHS Eagle II contract. Dell was one of a number of contractors awarded an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with a period of performance of 10 years and an aggregated ceiling value of more than $20 billion. Under this contract, Dell will help DHS develop, maintain and implement a full-range of IT solutions to help the agency better accomplish its mission.
Dell was awarded a $37.1 million contract by prime contractor, AAC to provide IT services to GSA, through the GSA Technology Operations contract. This work will be executed in Dell’s Nashville, Tennessee and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma consolidated service centers and will expand the successful implementation of helpdesk support as Dell has implemented for other government customers.
“First and foremost we are looking forward to working with these key government customers to leverage our core competencies and help them accomplish their missions more efficiently and effectively,” said George Newstrom, vice president and general manager, Dell Services Federal Government.
