Oracle Managed Cloud Services gets Superior Status for Federal Deployments
May 23, 2014
Federal cloud computing initiatives are gathering momentum with the aim to lower IT expenses and consolidate federal data centers through the implementation of cloud-based services.
Oracle (News - Alert) Corp. has been approved to deliver a sophisticated new type of highly secure managed cloud services to federal customers that will help them rapidly and confidently comply with "Federal Cloud First" initiatives.
The Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, and General Services Administration as well as an outside company participated in the rigorous review of solutions from technology vendors.
Oracle's Managed Cloud Services was granted a provisional authority to operate under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, or FedRAMP. It gives its U.S. Government customers access to a full range of services for both software and hardware including infrastructure.
With this announcement, Oracle Managed Cloud Services has become the first private-cloud services provider to be given authority to offer federal customers a Platform as a Service (PaaS) that offers a hybrid-cloud environment encompassing both private cloud and community cloud.
These managed services include applications such as ERP, CRM and HCM; hardware and facilities setup/configuration; application management, testing, monitoring, and patching; as well as incident management and problem resolution, technical and functional service desk, point upgrades, security and disaster recovery.
Oracle Managed Cloud Services can manage your applications in the cloud so that you're able to drive innovation and re-direct your valuable resources to those projects that add even greater value to your organization.
Gail Coury, Vice President of Risk Management for Oracle Managed Cloud Services said in a statement, "Oracle is committed to protecting the information assets and sensitive data of our U.S. Government customers. Our FedRAMP provisional authorization exemplifies our continuing commitment to helping our U.S. Government customers satisfy their security requirements."
