FAIRFAX, Va., May 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Accelera Solutions, a leader in cloud and virtualization solutions announced they have been added as a participating dealer and ordering point to Carahsoft's DoD ESI BPA contract (W91QUZ-09-A-0003). This Blanket Purchase Agreement includes VMware's suite of software licenses, support/subscription, training and installation services for virtualization products. Accelera's addition to the DoD ESI BPA agreement is a major win for Accelera, VMware, and Carahsoft because Accelera is the first teaming partner who is a SAM registered small minority owned business.
"VMware is very happy to support Accelera Solutions with their inclusion into the DoD ESI BPA. As a critical partner to VMware, Accelera has proven pre-sales expertise in Compute, Desktop Virtualization, Mobile Device Management, and Cloud. Paired with their deep support for complex, modern implementations across a variety of Federal customers, Accelera's access to the DoD ESI BPA as a small business we believe will push that value even further. Giving customers a streamlined avenue towards purchasing and achieving their mission," said Bill Rowan Vice President, VMware Federal
The entire VMware product suite consisting of server, data center products and desktop products are available on ESA through VMware's government partner Carahsoft and their authorized VMware teaming partners. DOD customers use the VMware virtualization set to help in reducing their overall IT footprint and improve performance across the enterprise. This agreement offers additional discounts off the GSA federal supply schedule rates and is open for ordering by all Department of Defense (DoD) components, and authorized contractors.
"We're excited to add Accelera Solutions as an ordering point partner to our ESI contract. Accelera's expertise in desktop virtualization and mobility solutions positions them as a valuable partner to support the mission of the Department of Defense and we look forward to working with them to continue to grow the VMware End User Computing footprint within DOD," said Will Jones, Carahsoft's vice president of VMware Solutions.
Accelera continues to grow their business with VMware within the DoD sector and utilizes VMware's solutions to increase the utilization of existing hardware and reduce capital and operational costs. Accelera was added as a strategic teaming partner adding value to the buying process not only as a VAR but also as a solutions integrator. Accelera has past performances around VMware and virtualization as a solution and continues to be an industry leader in this space.
"Accelera Solutions is proud to be the newest member of the exclusive DoD ESI BPA contract. As a new buying point we are excited to bring a new avenue of purchase strategy to our DoD customers that will provide lower costs, better value, and easier procurement. Also, as the only minority owned small business on this contract to date, we recognize the strategic and important responsibility VMware puts on us as a small business. We feel that adding a small business like ours was a strategic move that is very beneficial to DoD customers and we look forward to continuing to be the leader in the virtualization technology federal marketplace," said Joe Brown, Accelera's President.
