MicroTech Cloud Lead on Dept of Transportation Contract
Technology Leader's MicroKloud™ Will Serve as Cornerstone
U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has selected OBXtek to lead their $15M Gateway Augmentation project. MicroTech is part of Team OBXtek, along with Virtustream, and will use its cloud computing (MicroKloud™) solution to provide a smooth migration of the existing system from a Government Owned/Contractor Operated (GOCO) system to a Contractor Owned/Contractor Operated (COCO) solution.
Leading Services Provider and Technology Integrator MicroTech is the technical lead for the migration involving the transition of the current FMCSA system from a stand-alone client/server environment to a cloud environment. A key component of the project will be incorporating MicroTech's portable data bases during the transition. This solution avoids down time, prevents risk of data loss, and enhances security. Once the migration is complete FMCSA's gateway will have increased performance through leveraging the latest technology.
President and CEO of MicroTech, Tony Jimenez highlighted the combined experience and credentials of the three companies comprising Team OBXtek by saying, "MicroTech is proud to be the cloud technology provider for this major contract and this opportunity will also once again showcase our MicroPodd solution as a true game-changer
MicroTech rolled out their cloud solutions earlier in the year when they won the Army's first cloud computing contract, Army Private Cloud Mobile (APC2). This $250M contract allows the Army to reduce costs through server consolidation and updating and optimizing their systems with fixed and containerized data centers. This solution involves a variety of MicroPodd configurations, including desktop, portable, and modular data center versions, as well as 20-foot and 40-foot mobile data centers, to meet a wide variety of capacity requirements.
"Partnering with MicroTech brings the best in cloud-based solutions and platforms to our Team
," said Ed Jesson, President & CEO of OBXtek; "MicroTech's reputation for being innovative is performance-based and their proactive approach in meeting client needs is unprecedented
