Enabling Multi-Cloud, Hybrid Cloud Strategies for Government
The U.S. government’s Cloud Smart strategy directs Federal agencies to drive federal cloud adoption to enhance mission and service delivery. As they attempt to modernize applications and migrate sensitive workloads to the cloud, agencies are required to adopt ”defense-in-depth” security strategies at the data layer in addition to the network and physical infrastructure layers to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of Federal information. The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) contributes to the government’s ability to transition from legacy technologies to mission-centric, cost-effective cloud-based systems in a more rapid, consistent, and secure manner.
Unfortunately, few public networks or hyperscale clouds are optimized to meet the government’s unique technical and cybersecurity requirements. And as the government’s adoption of cloud technologies increases over time, many agencies are pursing multi-cloud and hybrid cloud strategies to address issues of cost predictability, vendor lock-in, network performance, and lack of control over their data.
FedRAMP-Compliant Infrastructure and Cloud Solutions
ORock complements your existing hyperscale cloud deployments while providing an alternative option for sensitive workloads that require superior security, performance, cost predictability, and control.
As an infrastructure service provider with its own open source cloud, ORock® Technologies delivers enterprise-grade solutions that enable secure data operations while controlling costs, minimizing vendor lock-in, and enabling migration of applications and workloads to the cloud.
ORock operates a private, high-performance fiber optic backbone network and built an enterprise-grade cloud from the ground up using open source technologies (hardened by Red Hat) and a flat-rate billing model. ORockCloud is the only hybrid cloud built on Red Hat OpenStack Platform and Red Hat OpenShift Platform to achieve FedRAMP Moderate authorization for IaaS and PaaS. Our government-only community cloud, ORock HighCloud, is FedRAMP Ready at the High Impact Level.
This infrastructure is authorized by FedRAMP and the U.S. Department of Defense for use by government agencies. ORock solutions also comply with critical commercial standards such as HIPAA, HITECH, and PCI DSS.
