BETHESDA, Md., March 14 — Lockheed Martin UK has been selected by the Cabinet Office of the United Kingdom (U.K.) to provide G-Cloud IT services across the full complement of Government departments and organizations.
Under the framework agreement, Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions, the corporation's business area that provides cloud computing solutions, will offer a wide range of services including cloud strategy and integration services; cloud security services; mission centric services; green IT and energy optimization services; cloud brokering services; virtualization consulting; assessments for Oracle virtualization and virtual desktop as a service assessments.
The initial U.K. G-Cloud agreement, known as CloudStore, will run for six to nine months, with the potential to become a rolling contract.
"Lockheed Martin is thrilled to implement our cloud computing offerings to the U.K. government," said Mahesh Kalva, chief technology officer of Lockheed Martin's Enterprise IT Solutions organization. "Our proven solutions, initially developed and implemented across diverse U.S. government customers, are a perfect fit for the needs outlined by the U.K. government."
