ON-DEMAND INFRASTRUCTURE POWERED BY CLOUD TECHNOLOGY The shift from traditional server architecture to cloud-based ecosystems can give civilian, defense, intelligence, and state and local agencies the agility they need by delivering on-demand power to respond to changing circumstances in near real time. As agencies respond to the administration’s call to embrace a ‘cloud first’ IT strategy, it’s important to work with a trusted technology provider throughout the transition to make sure systems stay productive and secure.
