Colocation Provider, QTS, Launches Federal Cloud Hosting Solution

QTS’ colocation facility in Richmond

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 hosting solution delivers scalable, high-performing, virtual data centers for federal agencies and government contractors.

Best-of-breed technologies

Housed in QTS’ compliant, mega colocation facilites 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 would maintain strict logical and physical security protocols and expects to achieve FedRAMP certification in mid-2014.

With 10 colocation facilities in seven states, QTS owns, operates and manages approximately 3.8 million square feet of state-of-the-art data center infrastructure and supports more than 875 customers.
