SAIC Selects CyrusOne as Preferred Data Center Provider in Virginia

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 28 agosto 2018

Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) announced today that it will relocate one of its two data centers to a CyrusOne data center in Northern Virginia by the first half of 2019. CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE) is a premier global data center real estate investment trust.
This new data center location opens the door for future data center or infrastructure consolidations that may provide facility cost savings to SAIC. Additionally, this move further supports the company’s goal to have its primary and secondary disaster recovery data centers be greater than 150 miles apart. “During the past seven years, CyrusOne and SAIC have developed a strong relationship that will continue to grow with our new long-term lease agreement,” said SAIC Chief Information Officer Bob Fecteau. “By widening the geographical distance between our data centers, we are improving business continuity and reducing risk.”“We are elated to utilize our knowledge of the federal contract landscape to provide SAIC and other members of the integrator community with data centers that meet the unique needs of the contracting landscape, such as FISMA high-compliance requirements,” said John Gould, executive vice president, global sales, CyrusOne. “While we provide the space, power and cooling required by our integrator partners, SAIC provides all the integration services required to meet agency needs. This unique model positions CyrusOne to support future, federal data center consolidation efforts for the entire integrator community.” SAIC developed a Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) architecture and completed the deployment of an active-active configuration across its data centers using VMware’s automated Deployment Tool Kit (DTK). This initial internal capability is directly applicable to customers looking to deploy SDDCs within their current and future data centers.“SAIC developed this SDDC for ourselves and our customers. Working together, we developed an architecture that helps us consolidate and streamline our data centers, resulting in cost savings over time while also demonstrating to customers our unique SDDC solution,” stated Fecteau.
