FALLS CHURCH, Va. and ATLANTA, Aug. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CSRA Inc. (NYSE: CSRA), a leading provider of next-generation IT solutions and professional services to government organizations, and Racemi, a U.S.-based pioneer in migrating applications to the cloud, today announced an extension of their strategic partnership. The companies will collaborate to deliver cloud migration services that help public sector customers accelerate their transformation to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud, and the AWS FedRAMP-certified GovCloud.
A key element of this collaboration is the delivery of all the critical components needed to conduct a cloud migration project. The comprehensive approach afforded through this partnership provides customers with a full picture of their current landscape and a roadmap of how to complete the migration. The three-phased, bundled services approach includes discovery and design; target preparation; and assisted server migration.
This innovative solution was at the core of the successful cloud migration initiative CSRA implemented as a result of the formation of the company from the spin-off of CSC's North American Public Sector business and merger with SRA International in November 2015. The proven processes helped CSRA successfully migrate mission-critical apps to the AWS GovCloud in record time.
"Today's CIOs adopt cloud transformation strategies that require migration solutions to mitigate the risks inherent with moving entire data centers into the cloud," said Peter O'Donoghue, CSRA vice president, Solutions and Alliances. "By leveraging the first-hand experience and knowledge our brilliant teams gained from our own cloud migration efforts, and this great partnership with Racemi, we are well-positioned to effectively guide our federal government customers and help them seamlessly accelerate their path to the cloud."
"Cloud migration is no longer a barrier for customers to start their transformation to the cloud and CIOs no longer have to factor in long timelines to migrate their mission-critical applications to the cloud," said Lawrence Guillory, Racemi, president and CEO. "With software technology and services from Racemi, we have automated the full cloud migration process that greatly accelerates moving entire data centers into the cloud. Partnering with CSRA combines the experience and technology CIOs are looking for to mitigate risk in complex cloud migration projects for the public sector."
The packaged, bundled offerings of these proven processes and technologies are available through the NITAAC Chief Information Officer – Commodities and Solutions (CIO-CS) GWAC, which was designed for next-generation IT acquisitions. The CIO-CS contract is fast, flexible, and cost competitive and allows customers to easily procure the bundled services offerings to accelerate their cloud transformation strategies.
