Under the framework agreement, Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions, the corporation's business area that provides cloud computing solutions, will offer a wide range of services including cloud strategy and integration services; cloud security services; mission centric services; green IT and energy optimization services; cloud brokering services; virtualization consulting; assessments for Oracle virtualization and virtual desktop as a service assessments.

The initial U.K. G-Cloud agreement, known as CloudStore, will run for six to nine months, with the potential to become a rolling contract.

"Lockheed Martin is thrilled to implement our cloud computing offerings to the U.K. government," said Mahesh Kalva, chief technology officer of Lockheed Martin's Enterprise IT Solutions organization. "Our proven solutions, initially developed and implemented across diverse U.S. government customers, are a perfect fit for the needs outlined by the U.K. government." 

Lockheed Martin's cloud computing platform, Solutions as a Service (SolaS™), is a suite of offerings designed to deliver mission-focused solutions that can be scaled to shape cost-effective, fully secure platforms anytime, anywhere. SolaS™ aligns with the vastly diverse needs of our customers and is fully operational among many government partners.   

Lockheed Martin is the leading provider of IT services to the U.S. federal government. In the U.K., the corporation was the IT prime contractor for the 2011 Census and Lockheed Martin's inclusion in the framework agreement marks a breakthrough in securing pan-public sector work in the U.K.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 123,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services.
