In a strong statement of focus, Carpathia Hosting has announced the formation of Carpathia Government Solutions, a unit dedicated to providing solutions specifically for federal civilian and defense agencies. This move was a direct result of the company's recent acquisition of ServerVault and looks to be a strong bid to provide secure managed cloud solutions to the federal marketplace.
The new business unit boasts ATOs (Authority to Operate) for over 20 federal agencies, support for private agency networks and an active facility clearance. During my interview with General Manager Seth Finkel their intent to redefine the federal hosting market was clear. According to Seth, their solution portfolio will range from traditional co-location and managed hosting to federally-compliant cloud services delivered via the most secure, federally-compliant hosting facility in the world.
"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."
Prior to the acquisition, Finkel led sales, sales engineering, marketing, product and business development efforts for ServerVault, including new customer acquisition, account management, channel and partner development, and other activities pertaining to product development/marketing, revenue generation and retention. Before ServerVault, Finkel was a key executive within PSINet’s global Web hosting business. He helped grow the business unit from infancy to a multi-national presence and $100M+ annual revenue. Finkel also held positions at MCI and American Management Systems (now CGI).
