“Federal agencies are consolidating aging systems and transitioning to consumption-based cloud storage using industry best practices,” says Sandy Carter, vice president of worldwide public sector partners and programs for Amazon Web Services (AWS). “AWS and our Partners are helping the VA and the Public Sector at large extract value from their unstructured data once in the cloud without impacting its security posture.”
“Legacy data centre NAS infrastructure lacks native cloud support and cannot meet the scale and elasticity requirements of modern data workloads,” says Emil Velasquez, CTERA vice president for federal sales. “Being selected by Peraton to support the VA’s modernisation is a testament to the strong relevance of global file systems for public sector agencies, and further supports CTERA’s standing as the undisputed leader of the 2021 GigaOm Radar for Distributed Cloud File Storage.”
IaaMS will support up to 220+ petabytes of VA’s mission critical data, ranging from business operations data to the medical images used in veteran care. Additionally, IaaMS will enable VA to create a standardised service delivery model that eliminates application-specific infrastructure silos, leverages cloud-based storage capabilities, and implements industry best practices for storage.
