On August 18th, Apptis announced a partnership with ServerVault to offer a trusted cloud computing environment to federal agencies. Called Fedcloud they are offering a federally compliant, on-demand infrastructure that lets agencies "acquire, utilize, and disengage without contractual dependency (subscription fees, licenses, or long-term commitments)."
Apptis is currently scheduled to present at the October 8th SOA-R event at the Tower Club in Tyson's Corner. Sign-up on the SOA-R registration page if you would like to learn more about this offering.
This certainly marks an important milestone. If these two companies are jumping into the Federal market with cloud solutions, can others be far behind?
