Now Leading Provider of Secure, Compliant Hosting Solutions for Federal Agencies
Ashburn, VA – October 6, 2009 – Carpathia Hosting, a leading provider of managed hosting services for government agencies and businesses, today announced an expanded portfolio of secure, compliant hosting solutions designed specifically for federal civilian and defense agencies through its recentacquisition of ServerVault. The company also announced the creation of Carpathia Government Solutions (CGS), a business unit focused on delivering secure, compliant and innovative hosting solutions engineered for the federal market.
“During the years we have worked with ServerVault, we’ve been pleased with their understanding of federal requirements and commitment to meeting our needs,” says Todd Varland, Director OnDemand at Saba. “We expect this to continue with the Carpathia acquisition and look forward to the expanded suite of services as well as cost-effective technologies like cloud storage being offered in a federally-compliant manner.”
“Combining ServerVault’s experience in delivering secure, compliant solutions with Carpathia’s existing federal expertise, solidifies our leadership position in providing the most comprehensive suite of hosting solutions for the federal market,” said Peter Weber, CEO of Carpathia Hosting. “With the launch of CGS, we are advancing our commitment to drive innovation in the areas of security and compliance for our federal customers.”
Carpathia Government Solutions (CGS). With the acquisition of ServerVault, Carpathia Hosting now commands one of the most impressive rosters of federal agencies under management, currently delivering solutions for a diverse range of federal agencies including Department of Defense, Intelligence, Department of Homeland Security and other federal civilian agencies.
With active ATOs (Authority to Operate) for over 20 federal agencies, support for private agency networks and an active facility clearance, Carpathia Hosting is one of the best positioned companies to serve the range of federal agency IT infrastructure requirements – and is the only provider in the industry that guarantees certification and accreditation for federal agencies within our Service Level Agreements.
“One huge differentiator for Carpathia is that our offering is compliant by design, and — unlike other hosting companies — requires no additional ‘fit-up’, supplemental costs or implementation effort to achieve government certification and accreditation. We have successfully achieved an ATO for diverse mission-critical government programs, supporting a range of environments including development, production and disaster recovery/COOP,” states Jon Greaves, CTO of Carpathia Hosting.
CGS will leverage innovation driven by Carpathia Hosting’s commercial product management and operations teams to deliver market-leading secure and compliant solutions specific to federal agency requirements. This gives agencies and systems integrators control and visibility over dedicated, hardened solutions while simultaneously leveraging the scalability, reliability and flexibility offered by new technologies like cloud computing.
Dedicated Leadership. Carpathia Hosting is also pleased to announce that Seth Finkel, formerly Senior Vice President of Managed Services at ServerVault, will serve as General Manager of the newly formed government group. Finkel will oversee the daily operations, sales and business development efforts for CGS. The business unit will focus on continuing and enhancing a proven delivery model that exceeds the IT functionality and compliance requirements of federal, state and local agencies.
“I’m thrilled to be leading an impressive team dedicated to the delivery of a comprehensive suite of secure, compliant solutions for federal agencies and other public sector organizations,” said Finkel. “With Carpathia Hosting and ServerVault joining forces, we now have ten datacenters across the country and an expanded services portfolio that can leverage our proven Federally Compliant Application Platform (FCAP). The range and overall value of the IT services that CGS offers the government market is second to none in the industry.”
