UK: Lockheed Martin UK has expanded its offering of cloud computing services available to the UK government after recently being selected to provide G-Cloud 2 IT support. This new contract succeeds the previous G-Cloud 1 programme and will run for 12 months, allowing Lockheed Martin UK to provide an even wider range of services that includes infrastructure, software and specialist cloud capabilities.
Under the G-Cloud 2 framework agreement, better known as CloudStore, Lockheed Martin will now offer support such as computing and storage, e-mail and collaboration, cloud strategy and integration; cloud security; mission centric activities; green IT and energy optimization; cloud brokering; virtualisation consulting; assessment for Oracle virtualisation; and virtual desktop as a service assessment.
“Lockheed Martin’s selection for the G-Cloud 2 programme reinforces that our proven cloud solution meets the expanded needs outlined by the UK government,” said Vicki Schmanske, vice president of the company’s IT & Security Solutions organization. “We look forward to working with UK government departments and agencies and leveraging our US cloud experience to deliver innovation-led, efficiency savings.”
