Canonical, the sponsor of Ubuntu, and Autonomic Resources announced the availability of an integrated product based on Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (UEC) and Dell Blade server hardware under the ARC-P cloud product family.
ARC-P-UEC is now available for purchase as single sku on Autonomic’s GSA Schedule 70 contract. UEC has proved very popular with private companies testing and developing cloud built on their internal servers and data centers. This move makes that same technology available to the federal government and offers the efficiencies of cloud computing to the large-scale, but often budget-restricted, government IT sectors.
Autonomic Resources was founded in 2001 and has brought superior IT solutions to the federal government since then. As Public and Private cloud computing provider and open-source technology integration leader, adopting Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud, the leading open-source implementation of the de facto industry standards for cloud computing, made obvious sense for the company.
Autonomic Resources used their extensive experience with federal purchasing policy to get a certified bundle of UEC on Dell Blade servers available via the US General Services Administration (GSA) supply schedule.
