NJVC Cloudcuity Management Portal to Provide Secure Cloud Brokerage Services
CHANTILLY, Va., March 28, 2013
Geospatial Community Cloud Demonstration will be led by NJVC and its Three
CHANTILLY, Va., March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NJVC® will lead
efforts to provide secure cloud brokerage services to the Network Centric
Operations Industry Consortium(NCOIC) using its first-to-market Cloudcuity™
Management Portal during a series of 2013 geospatial community cloud
demonstrations that will be conducted on behalf of the National
Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA). NJVC's partners are The Aerospace
Corporation, The Boeing Company and Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC).
Hosted through the secure Cloudcuity Management Portal, NCOIC members will
have access to CloudScreen™, an automated set of evaluation tools that:
oDetermines cloud infrastructure feasibility
oEstimates cloud infrastructure cost and benefits
oConducts physical capacity for cloud translations
oMatches application requirements to cloud provider capabilities based on
features and functionality
oCompares provider costs and quality of service
"NJVC is honored that NCOIC chose the Cloudcuity Management Portal as its
brokerage of choice to offer cloud services to the geospatial community," said
Kevin L. Jackson, vice president and general manager of NJVC cloud services.
"This NCOIC demonstration is significant as it will represent a new
procurement model for the geospatial community, which is at the frontlines of
protecting and responding to national and international crises in times of
conflict. Procurement of cloud services will be less complicated, making
deployments to the cloud easier and more efficient than ever before. This will
benefit first responders and other non-traditional NGA users."
Team members' unique contributions include:
oThe Boeing Company: Geoservices through a Boeing-developed set of
capabilities via its OpenGeo software
oThe Aerospace Corporation: An OpenStack-based cloud and a virtual
organization management system patterned after the one used by the
Worldwide Large Hadron Collider Computing Grid
oOGC: Expertise to monitor, offer advice and report on the use of OGC
standards throughout the demonstration period
Once feasibility is assured and providers are selected, Cloudcuity Management
Portal users will leverage the integrated virtual application and data center
manager services to design virtual data centers through a user-friendly
console. Once the design is finalized and approved through an automated review
process, virtual resources will be provisioned simultaneously, across the
group of selected providers through the cloud service bus, which has
application program interface connections to different cloud providers.
The Cloudcuity Management Portal also will provide advanced monitoring,
consolidated billing, chargeback and policy governance to ensure provider
compliance and NCOIC satisfaction.
