Carahsoft Named Amazon Web Services Public Sector Solution Provider

Submitted by on June 20, 2018 – 11:48 pmNo Comment

RESTON, Va. , June 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider™, today announced that Amazon Web Services (AWS) recognized Carahsoft as an AWS Public Sector Solution Provider to resell AWS services as part of their technology solutions. Building on its existing partnership with VMware, Carahsoft can now make VMware Cloud (VMC) on AWS and AWS services available through Carahsoft and its reseller ecosystem. VMware Cloud on AWS is an on-demand cloud service that enables agencies to run applications across vSphere-based cloud environments with access to a broad range of AWS services, making it even easier for customers to move, run, and protect mission-critical applications at scale.

“The collaboration between AWS and VMware is gaining great momentum,” said Craig P. Abod, president of Carahsoft, which has been serving as VMware’s master government aggregator since 2006. “We’re excited to work with AWS and VMware to bring these new capabilities to our public sector customers and resellers.”

Powered by VMware Cloud Foundation, VMware VMC service integrates vSphere, vSAN and NSX along with VMware vCenter management, and is optimized to run on dedicated, elastic, bare-metal AWS infrastructure. With VMware Hybrid Cloud Extension, customers can easily and rapidly perform large-scale bi-directional migrations between on-premises and VMware Cloud on AWS environments. With the same architecture and operational experience on-premises and on the cloud, IT teams can now quickly derive instant business value from use of the AWS and VMware hybrid cloud experience.

Carahsoft began working with AWS in 2015, helping its technology providers make their products available on AWS Marketplace. In its new role as an AWS Public Sector Solution Provider, Carahsoft has added AWS products to its federal, state and local government contracts, and is working with VMware and its other cloud solutions manufacturers to leverage AWS cloud services.

Carahsoft and VMware will highlight VMC on AWS at the AWS Public Sector Summit at the DC Convention Center on June 20-21, 2018. See this solution in action at Carahsoft’s Pavilion, which will also feature the latest cloud technologies from more than 30 additional vendor partners.
