Lockheed Martin has a vision for the cloud that delivers reliable and secure functionality, yet is developed to fit customer-specific business models. To do so seamlessly and as efficiently as possible, the IT provider turned to Cisco, Intel, NetApp, and VMware to integrate technologies to enable this vision.
Lockheed Martin’s solutions-as-a-service cloud approach is called SolaS™, and it is more than just a general service. Lockheed Martin takes the time to identify the objectives of the client’s mission and determine what the best innovation and solutions are that fit those objectives. With the FlexPod™ architecture, developed by the aforementioned technology partners, a solution can be rapidly deployed and then adjusted according to customer needs.
A four-step process to implementing SolaS ensures that each cloud model is developed according to differentiated customer purposes. You can read more about Lockheed Martin’s SolaS approach and how the service is delivered on the Unleashing IT website.
Coming up: Thought leaders from Cisco, Intel, NetApp, and Microsoft are coming together to explain how your business can gain a competitive advantage using FlexPod with Microsoft Private Cloud. They’ll share stories of others’ success by choosing the right technology and infrastructure to make the most of their private cloud environment. Join Cisco for this executive roundtable discussion on April 17, 2013.
