  DLT Solutions Now Offers Amazon Web Services to Multiple Contract Vehicles
  Including GSA IT Schedule 70

Provides public sector customers with fast and cost effective procurement path
              for a secure and reliable cloud computing platform

Business Wire

HERNDON, Va. -- February 5, 2013

DLT Solutions, a leading value-added reseller in government information
technology (IT) software and services, announced that it has added Amazon Web
Services (AWS), a leading provider of IT infrastructure and web services, to
its GSA IT Schedule 70 (GS-35F-4543G), NIH ECS III, NCPA, and other
agency-specific contracts. Through these contracts, federal, state, local and
tribal government entities now have fast and cost effective means to procure
secure and reliable cloud-ready AWS solutions, thus enabling them to instantly
spin-up hundreds or thousands of servers and storage in minutes, reducing
delivery time to constituents.

DLT Solutions’ contracts now include AWS offerings across multiple AWS Regions
including the AWS GovCloud Region. These regions incorporate many of the same
security controls, but AWS GovCloud brings added value to government customers
who need an additional level of regulatory compliance. The AWS GovCloud Region
framework adheres to International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)
requirements, providing a cloud option to customers who have the specific
requirement that their systems and data be only accessed by U.S. persons. DLT
Solutions’ status as an APN Advanced Consulting Partner for AWS provides its
government customers with the confidence and guidance to ensure the best
solution to fit their needs and requirements.

“AWS provides government agencies a secure, reliable, and cost-effective
computing platform in the cloud. By using AWS services, government
organizations can focus on meeting their mission-critical objectives, and
spend less time procuring, developing, or managing IT resources,” explained
Teresa Carlson, vice president of worldwide public sector for Amazon Web
Services. “AWS is excited to expand our relationship with DLT who combines
industry expertise and knowledge with a customer-focused approach.”

“Many of our customers are intrigued by the benefits that cloud computing may
bring. Infrastructure- and Platform-as-a-Service offerings bring a wealth of
new capabilities, flexibility and opportunity to the public sector,” explained
David Blankenhorn, chief cloud technologist and leader of the DLT Cloud
Advisory Group. “We are excited about our relationship with Amazon Web
Services and the power and flexibility cloud computing can bring to our public
sector customers. With the addition of AWS to DLT’s multiple contract
vehicles, we can provide this new technology platform through several
well-known and trusted procurement vehicles such as GSA Schedule, NIH
Electronic Commodity Store III, and the National Cooperative Purchasing
Alliance contracts. DLT is committed to ensuring a fast, competitive, and
flexible means to acquire cloud computing.”

In late 2012, DLT Solutions announced that the General Services Administration
(GSA) exercised its option to extend DLT Solutions’ GSA IT Schedule 70
(GS-35F-4543G) contract through March 31, 2017.

Dedicated to providing customers with knowledge and advice on cloud computing
technology, the DLT Cloud Advisory Group (CAG) helps customers navigate
current mandates, available solutions and the best options for your
environment. To learn more about the cloud computing options for public sector
