Savvis announced on Thursday that it recently won a $1.1 million, three-year contract for providing cloud hosting to the Federal Communications Commission.
Savvis Federal Systems Inc., a CenturyLink company, will provide managed public cloud hosting for www.fcc.gov, myfcc.gov and the commission’s other public domains.
The contract includes infrastructure as a service, and extends to the task of migrating the FCC’s existing infrastructure to a CenturyLink cloud data center.
Savvis has won several government contracts in the past. In 2011, Savvis Federal Systems won a $9.8 million contract with the US Federal Election Commission. In 2010, Savvis Federal Systems was one of 11 vendors awarded a contract by the US General Services Administration to provide cloud computing to government organizations. Its parent company, CenturyLink, is ranked in the top 50 of Washington Technology’s 2013 Top 100 list of federal government IT contractors.
“CenturyLink is eager to leverage its extensive cloud hosting product portfolio to support the FCC’s many missions, including the commission’s efforts to encourage new technologies to flourish,” said Diana Gowen, CenturyLink Public Sector senior vice president and general manager. “We look forward to adding our secure cloud hosting solutions to the WAN and MTIPS solutions we already provide to the FCC.”
