Peraton Lands $497M VA Contract for Enterprise Cloud Services
The Department of Veterans Affairs has awarded Peraton a potential $497 million contract to provide enterprise-scale infrastructure-as-a-managed-service across its facilities.
Peraton said the firm-fixed-price deal has a performance period of seven years. The company will integrate on-premise infrastructure with the VA Enterprise Cloud, an environment that allows the department to take advantage of the full spectrum of cloud services in delivering services to veterans.
According to the department’s VAEC technical guide, the environment’s architecture is already supported by multiple cloud service providers offering infrastructure-as-a-service, platform-as-a-service and software-as-a-service.
Peraton said its IaaMS solution will support mission-critical workloads such as VistA Imaging, a digital medical image repository used by VA health care facilities.
Tarik Reyes, Peraton’s president for global health and financial solutions, said VA awarded the contract in recognition of the company’s competence in health data management and storage.
“Our innovative laaMS solution simplifies infrastructure consumption into an easy-to-use managed service, enabling enterprise-level transparency across clouds and facilities,” Reyes added.
The technology is expected to support about 220 petabytes of mission-critical data, including business operations data and medical images used in veteran care.
Peraton said IaaMS will also standardize the delivery of cloud-based services and prevent data from being siloed in application-specific infrastructure. The model will also take advantage of industry best practices for storage, the company added.
Work will be done at up to 300 VA facilities in the continental United States and abroad, Peraton said.
Headquartered in Herndon, Virginia, Peraton is an information technology company that works with government agencies across the intelligence, space, cyber, defense, civilian, health and state and local markets.
