Stamford, Connecticut – (The Hosting News) – May 15, 2008 – Provider of software for managing the physical infrastructure of data centers, Aperture Technologies, Inc., has been selected to upgrade the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA).
Engaged for the Aperture VISTA 500, the company will manage its data center environment. Aperture closed the deal in partnership with Global Technology Systems Consortium (GTSC), an IT provider to federal, state and local agencies. GTSC will work with DISA to implement the Aperture solution which will be rolled out in seven of DISA’s largest data centers across the continental United States (CONUS).
Bill Clifford, President of Aperture Technologies remarked, ”This is unarguably a vitally important organization. To have Aperture managing federal data center resources speaks to our expertise and VISTA’s role in providing much-needed visibility and control of today’s complex data center environments.”
GTSC proposed Aperture VISTA as the solution that would enable the precise tracking and management of all physical devices throughout DISA’s data centers and provide DISA with accurate information to track and forecast capacity, power, and space. The DISA Computing Services Division’s (CSD) data centers are operated by the Infrastructure Management Division, which plans, engineers, and maintains fundamental elements required by the Defense Enterprise Computing centers (DECCs) to perform operational processing in support of customer applications.
DISA DECCs’ needed a solution that would provide management capability as data centers continue to grow in size, complexity, and operational demand. This included the ability to integrate work flow and to assess the impact of high density computing devices, such as blade servers, that provide higher processing power within a more compact footprint.
The DISA Computing Services Division has been an Aperture customer since 1989, when it invested in Aperture’s original product offering, an application that helped managers to position mainframes in the data centers. The Division is currently the DoD’s number one provider of computing services spanning personnel, payroll, logistics, accounting, and medical records processing.
Global Technology Systems Consortium, Inc. Global Technology Systems Consortium, Inc. (GTSC), a minority-owned, SBA 8(a) company, was established in 1997 to provide quality software solutions and consulting services to help government and commercial clients manage the business and technology complexities of today’s IT environment.
