(The Hosting News) – The U.S. Department of Labor is moving forward with plans to consolidate its data center infrastructure via a facility from BYTEGRID.
The move was made possible by a government contract with Lockheed Martin.
“We are pleased to provide the critical data center infrastructure and innovative incenter cloud bursting, meeting all key government standards for security compliance,” commented BYTEGRID Executive VP Don Goodwin via a press release.
The initial contract is set for 7 years and transitions the Department of Labor’s data from D.C. facilities to a 214 square foot location in Maryland.
“BYTEGRID’s secure, FISMA-compliant facility met all contractual requirements, enabling our team to support DOL’s mission needs,” stated Lockheed Martin’s Lynn Singleton when commenting on his company’s approval of BYTEGRID.
The data re-consolidation effort comes as part of an overall initiative aimed at cutting down on costs and infrastructure size. BYTEGRID aims its data center services towards financial, healthcare, government and media institutions.
