Overland Park, Kan. (Jan. 15, 2013) – QTS Realty Trust (NYSE: QTS), one of the nation’s largest and fastest-growing providers of data center facilities and managed services, has launched the QTS Federal Cloud, an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution designed exclusively for United States government agencies.
QTS Federal Cloud is designed to meet the mandates faced by federal government agencies, including the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI), Cloud First policy and IT Shared Services strategy. QTS’ highly-secure cloud solution delivers scalable, high-performing, virtual data centers for federal agencies and government contractors.
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. The company maintains strict logical and physical security protocols and expects to achieve FedRAMP certification in mid-2014.
