The National Institutes of Health awarded CAS Severn the CIO-CS (Chief Information Officer – IT Commodities/Solutions) contract in the spring of 2015. This contract allows us to sell to all departments within the federal government.
CIO-CS Contract Holders like CAS Severn have gone through a comprehensive review process prior to award, which includes dimensions such as technical capabilities, past performance, price and cost. Contract holders are the “best of the best,” and that pre-screening allows federal customers to purchase with confidence, knowing that all contract holders have met security standards directed by the federal government.
Hyper-converged infrastructure is seeing rapid growth in the federal government, boasting a 26.6 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over the past five years. In fact, it is the fastest-growing sector of the software-defined storage market.
According to Ed McCosby, CAS Severn Senior Solutions Architect, “This is a great platform to do a private cloud on site because you can scale it up and down.”
As the pace of innovation increases and IT requirements continue to evolve, federal agencies are turning to hyperconverged infrastructure to help streamline IT operations.
Hyperconverged infrastructure is the merging of computing, storage and networking in a software-driven appliance to reduce data center complexity and increase scalability. Federal agencies can turn to HPE SimpliVity, available now through CAS Severn on the NITAAC CIO-CS contract, to help streamline IT operations with a fast, simple and efficient hyper-converged platform.
