QTS Federal Cloud


Delivering compliant, scalable and secure virtual data centers for federal and government agencies


The QTS Federal Cloud delivers scalable, secure, high-performing, virtual data centers for government mission-critical applications. This Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution is designed to meet the mandates that federal agencies, government contractors, and system integrators are facing, including the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI), Cloud First and Shared Services.

QTS Federal Cloud is FedRAMP Compliant


QTS is pleased to announce that our Federal Cloud solution has achieved FedRAMP compliance. The QTS Federal Cloud solution meets the security and performance needs of government agencies' mission-critical applications. QTS is the first cloud services provider (CSP) to achieve FedRAMP compliance through the FedRAMP supply path protocol. Other approaches to achieving FedRAMP compliance include using a 3PAO to work toward Joint Authorization Board Provisional Authorization, or working directly with a Federal Agency to assess the CSP’s system. Achieving this milestone positions us to obtain a FedRAMP authority-to-operate (ATO) from a Federal agency customer.

Housed in QTS’ compliant, mega-data centers in Richmond and Atlanta, the QTS Federal Cloud is built on best-of-breed technologies that federal agencies are already familiar with, including VMware, EMC and Cisco, making the solution easy to integrate with private VMware environments. Security and compliance are top priorities for QTS and we are proud to be among the first cloud service providers to achieve FedRAMP compliance. We have applied our rigorous approach to all aspects of the QTS Federal Cloud in order to meet the needs of federal agencies that require a highly-secure, scalable, high-performing cloud solution.
