IT services provider NJVC has launched Cloudcuity, a new platform for the company’s cloud services that is designed to help customers transition their technology applications to a cloud environment.
The first service being introduced under the framework is the Cloudcuity Management Portal – a multi-cloud broker service specifically designed to support federal government customers. In addition to transition process, the management portal is also designed to cut spending, improve process and billing efficiencies and comply with regulatory and security requirements, according to Jody Tedesco, president of NJVC.
“Cloudcuity is not your typical cloud service,” Tedesco said in a company statement. “This family of NJVC cloud capabilities, beginning with the Cloudcuity Management Portal, is designed for technology decision makers who must deploy IT applications to the cloud with transparency for managing risk and governance under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) and the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA).”
NJVC is partnering with Gravitant to provide federal departments and agencies with an array of vendor-neutral, secure cloud solutions that allow customers to test, configure, provision and manage cloud services from start to finish using a single online interface, Tedesco added.
The underlying technology behind the Cloudcuity Management Portal is a unified cloud lifecycle management platform, cloudMatrix, developed and powered by Gravitant. The platform allows users to try, design and price an array of services from multiple cloud providers before placing an order or outlaying any capital.
The Cloudcuity Management Portal provides a secure environment for federal agencies to try out and test cloud programs before committing to a large-scale migration, according to Dr. Ilyas Iyoob, director of advanced analytics at Gravitant.
“The portal is also the perfect, risk-free strategy for any department or agency to comply with the federal cloud implementation mandate without jeopardizing its mission,” Iyoob said.
Once a user decides on one or more cloud services, the platform automatically orders the service(s). Users then manage their cloud services with command-and-control features built into the platform. They can also quickly and easily change providers without fear of vendor lock in, company officials said.
