Transformation Infrastructure

By pwsadmin | September 26, 2020

Vienna, Va., Oct. 4, 2012NJVC®, an information technology solutions provider headquartered in Northern Virginia, and Virtustream, Inc., a leading enterprise cloud software company, today announced a new alliance to provide the Virtustream xChange cloud marketplace to government customers. Under the terms of the agreement, NJVC customers will use xChange technology to shop for on-demand compute services from providers that are looking to sell unused capacity, often at a discount. This service will soon be available to the federal government through the new NJVC Cloudcuity™ Government Marketplace via the NJVC Cloudcuity Management Portal.
NJVC recently announced its Cloudcuity portfolio of services to support mission- and business-focused cloud computing environments, and is now expanding its capabilities through this alliance.
“Virtustream xChangewill give NJVC Cloudcuity users the automated ability to compare the cost of service offerings across the Cloudcuity Management Portal,” said Kevin L. Jackson, vice president and general manager, NJVC Cloudcuity. “Users will be able to take advantage of temporary price reductions through spot pricing and arbitrage. In addition, it will give the company the ability to dynamically adjust rates and apply a variety of pricing methodologies, such as fixed, variable, tiered and subscription, delivering on an important tenant of agile acquisition.”
Virtustream’s xChange allows enterprises in any vertical, including government, healthcare, education and financial services, to create a virtual cloud marketplace of approved vendors and consumers of cloud services. Each industry vertical has unique requirements and standards for the cloud, for example, healthcare (HIPAA), ecommerce (PCI), government (FISMA, G-cloud) and defense (DIACAP, NIST-800-53). As a result, it had been difficult to interconnect clouds within verticals to share capacity (cloud-bursting), applications (community clouds) or information (cloud federation).xChange now provides this secure and compliant capability.
Hosted on Cloudcuity, the government-focused xChange will also provide supplier scoring, billing, price comparisons and workload migration, while offering a dashboard on performance and service level agreement requirements. Employing a marketplace concept, xChange enables users to respond to dynamic pricing based on availability and demand.
“xChange is a trusted cloud marketplace that brings together approved vendors and consumers, and enables users to buy/sell capacity, access spot pricing and see future pricing,” said Kevin Reid, Virtustream chief executive and technology officer.“The majority of broker applications use a department store model—one shop with a handful of suppliers. xChange leverages dynamic market conditions to reduce the cost of infrastructure, while assuring enterprise cloud customers that they will stay competitive, compliant and secure.”

Some factors to consider are the types and sizes of files you will need to store, how often you will need to access them, and of course, your business budget.
