REAN Cloud, an Amazon Web Services (AWS Cloud) Premier Partner and global cloud systems integrator, has finalized a 5-year contract with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) for up to $950 million – to enable agencies within DoD to procure cloud solutions and services directly from REAN Cloud in a new streamlined process.

REAN Cloud worked with Defense Innovation Unit Experimental (DIUx)  – a DoD organization charged with accelerating commercial innovation to the U.S. military – in order to facilitate prototyping and procurement of the full range of cloud adoption requirements, from Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) to application assessments, migrations, operations, and more.

This production Other Transaction (OT) contract is modeled on an award-winning OT prototype project for the U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM), DoD’s first large-scale infrastructure assessment and cloud migration successfully completed by REAN Cloud last year. This project earned USTRANSCOM honorable mention for the 2017 DoD CIO Cyber and IT Excellence Award, as the migration to highly automated and controlled cloud environments has enabled large-scale modernization.

REAN Cloud will let USTRANSCOM and other DoD organizations “quickly” migrate legacy applications to a government-approved, commercial cloud environment of their choice.

Fixed Pricing, Automated Procurement

“Our experience has taught us that to get the full benefit of the cloud, you have to think differently,” said Sekhar Puli, managing partner, REAN Cloud. “The speed and agility that our patent-pending technology brings to cloud migration and operations invites a similarly nimble approach for the government. With Firm Fixed-Pricing (FFP) and automated procurement, we are changing old mindsets of typical vendor relationships. Our DoD customers can now achieve the same efficiencies available to the commercial sector as they seek to design, migrate, automate, manage and scale systems and databases running in the cloud.”

REAN Cloud is a global Cloud Systems Integrator (CSI), Managed Service Provider (MSP) and Premier Consulting Partner in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN). The REAN Cloud team has worked alongside global organizations. Besides USTRANSCOM, these organizations include the American Heart Association, Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Ditech Mortgage, Ellucian, Globus Genomics, Palo Alto Networks, Philips, PierianDx, SAP, Symantec, Teradata, and Veritas.
