Solutions

Public sector agencies and higher education institutions are leveraging the cloud to achieve cost savings, improve efficiency, and meet federal mandates such as the Cloud First policy. However, cloud computing is often a challenging technology to visualize and the same solution doesn’t work for every organization.

 

DLT’s Cloud Solutions team understands the challenges involved with implementing cloud solutions, and we have strategic partnerships with leading Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Cloud Management vendors to provide our customers with a simplified path to the cloud. Our experienced team has the deep knowledge and expertise required to help organizations identify applicable use cases for cloud computing and design, and to implement and manage solutions tailored specifically to each organization’s unique needs.

Secure Application Hosting

With traditional IT models, physical infrastructure must be built and maintained in order to run on–premises applications. By leveraging the flexibility and agility of the cloud, organizations of all sizes are enjoying lower costs and simplified infrastructure management. Through our partnerships with leading cloud vendors, our Cloud Solutions team provides organizations with access to a myriad of reliable, scalable, and flexible computing resources on which applications can be hosted and deployed.

 

Deploy your existing applications - in some cases even leveraging your existing licenses - or new applications, securely and cost-effectively with our cloud solutions.

 

Benefits:

  • Reduced Costs - Save money and avoid up-front capital expenses by paying only for the resources used
  • Unlimited Scalability - Automatically add thousands of virtual machines and seamlessly scale to handle virtually any number of users
  • Flexibility - Take advantage of an open and flexible platform that allows users to move data in and out any time; run, deploy and maintain apps
  • Enhanced Security - Leverage a secure, durable platform with industry-recognized certifications and audits such as FISMA Moderate, HIPAA and ITAR–compliant controls

Rapid Application Development & Testing

 

Traditional software development processes are often time consuming and costly, requiring physical hardware and software that can drive development cycles to an average of three and a half years. The power of the cloud can eliminate these scalability, availability, and procurement challenges for public sector and higher education customers, and jumpstart application deployment timelines by over 30%. CODEvolved is a private Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering, brought to you by DLT, that empowers developers to focus on coding new application services while providing IT operations teams with a flexible, highly available infrastructure platform. CODEvolved delivers Red Hat’s OpenShift Enterprise private PaaS, running on Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure, for an elastic, fully configured environment for application development. Through CODEvolved, application developers can code, test, and deploy their applications in a robust environment without the need to wait for operations staff to provision resources. Operations staff can also leverage the flexibility of the AWS cloud to provide resources to developers in their desired manner.

 

Benefits:

  • No Up-front Capital Investment - Thanks to the use of subscriptions for both Red Hat and AWS components, organizations only pay for consumed resources
  • Scalability - IT operations teams and developers can provision resources as needed, allowing the ability to expand and contract capacity to match application workloads
  • Decreased Lag Time - Provision complete and configured resource stacks on demand, allowing teams to experiment more quickly and more frequently
  • Familiar Programming Languages & Tools - Use languages and tools you already know and trust including Web Console, Ruby, PHP, Python, Perl, and more
  • Operational Speed & Agility - IT operations teams can provision and configure servers as needed without having to wrestle with deploying one virtual server per application component
  • Reduced Waste - Use what you need, when you need it, and release unused resources that can be reused by other development teams

Large-Scale Processing & Scalable Storage

Since most everything generates data, maintaining physical infrastructure to keep up with unpredictable and ever growing demand can be costly and complex. Leveraging cloud infrastructure for large-scale processing and storage needs can help agencies and organizations of all sizes reduce costs and improve efficiency through low-cost, pay-as-you-go pricing models that match utilization needs. DLT also offers our public sector and higher education customers a unique hybrid solution that leverages Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud infrastructure with the enterprise benefits of private storage in a colocation facility. DLT Private Storage for AWS delivers major cloud benefits like significant cost savings, increased agility using a mix of on-premises and cloud resources, and satisfaction of regulatory requirements. For budget-conscious agencies, the storage component can also be delivered as Storage-as-a-Service, a secure, on-premises solution with a variable, pay-as-you-go cloud-like pricing option that requires zero capital investment.

 

Benefits:

  • Ease of Use - Launch the resources you need within minutes and enjoy the benefits of automatic provisioning, setup and configuration
  • Elasticity - Add, expire, and delete any amount of data, quickly and easily
  • Scalability - Easily scale capacity up and down to meet demand

Cost-Efficient Backup & Disaster Recovery

Most agencies and organizations rely on physical infrastructure for disaster recovery, backup and archiving. Moving these activities into the cloud, not only reduces costs, but enables faster recovery of critical IT systems. Cloud backup allows storage and retrieval of any amount of data, at any time, all while only paying for the services used. Through our partnership with Amazon Web Services and Symantec, DLT offers public sector customers access to innovative storage and services solutions that take disaster recovery and backup capabilities to the next level.

Benefits:

  • Data migration - Easily migrate data to and from the cloud. Should your Agency or team merge with another, Cloud Data Integration allows you to efficiently migrate and merge data quickly to start working towards achieving your mission.
  • Data Archiving - Agencies must retain data for long periods, sometimes up to 10 years.  Inactive data from enterprise applications, such as Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, Siebel, SAP, and other custom applications and databases can easily be archived to on-premises or cloud storage.
  • Legacy Application Retirement - Many agencies spend a significant amount of their IT budget maintaining legacy applications which have depreciated in business value.  The data in these legacy applications can be retired to on-premises or cloud storage, and yet remain easily accessible for reporting or compliance audit purposes.
