Private clouds are virtual IT infrastructures, securely deployed and operated for a single organization. Private clouds can be managed either internally or by a third party, and can exist onsite or at a third party location or data center.

Lockheed Martin’s “Starfire Mission Ready Cloud” solution encompasses the company’s cyber security technology and cloud command/control technology as well as cloud computing and data center technology from VCE. Starfire Mission Ready Cloud enables government agencies to comply with their security requirements while realizing a full range of cloud computing benefits for mission critical applications.

“Starfire Mission Ready Cloud builds on VCE’s Vblock™ technology to provide a trusted environment that addresses concerns of data security, privacy and enhanced performance to meet the cloud computing objectives of customers both in the private and public sectors. This collaborative partnership with Lockheed Martin signifies VCE’s continued commitment to deliver the full benefits of cloud computing through Vblock-based solutions,” said Todd Pavone, Senior Vice President for Solutions, VCE.

The integrated solution accelerates affordable development, deployment, innovation and performance of cloud implementations while reducing infrastructure costs and risks. It is scalable and measurable combining Lockheed Martin mission-focused cloud management and cyber security solutions with VCE’s pre-integrated technologies from Cisco, EMC and VMware to deliver a highly-secure computing platform that can scale as organizations’ demands for IT grow.

In addition, Starfire Mission Ready Cloud delivers a turnkey pre-integrated consensus audit guideline (CAG) compliant secure private cloud. This continuous security assessment capability provides cyber security situational awareness, improved a customer’s security posture and lowers risk.
