Lockheed Martin Expands Range Of Cloud Computing Services For UK Government

ROCKVILLE, Md., Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin UK has expanded its offering of cloud computing services available to the UK government after recently being selected to provide G-Cloud 2 IT support. This new contract succeeds the previous G-Cloud 1 program and will run for 12 months, allowing Lockheed Martin UK to provide an even wider range of services that includes infrastructure, software and specialist cloud capabilities.

Under the G-Cloud 2 framework agreement, better known as CloudStore, Lockheed Martin will now offer support such as computing and storage, e-mail and collaboration, cloud strategy and integration; cloud security; mission centric activities; green IT and energy optimization; cloud brokering; virtualization consulting; assessment for Oracle virtualization; and virtual desktop as a service assessment.

"Lockheed Martin's selection for the G-Cloud 2 program reinforces that our proven cloud solution meets the expanded needs outlined by the UK government," said Vicki Schmanske, vice president of the company's IT & Security Solutions organization. "We look forward to working with UK government departments and agencies and leveraging our U.S. cloud experience to deliver innovation-led, efficiency savings." 

Lockheed Martin will support G-Cloud 2 through its Solutions as a Service (SolaS) secure cloud delivery innovation. This mission-focused approach to secure cloud computing combines best-in-industry partnerships, unprecedented domain expertise and advanced technology to deliver private, community and hybrid offerings for a variety of customers. The corporation began its investment in cloud solution development in early 2008, with its first cloud implementation in early 2009. Since then, Lockheed Martin has been on the front lines of the cloud evolution.

Lockheed Martin is the leading provider of IT services to the U.S. federal government. In the UK, Lockheed Martin was the IT prime contractor for the 2011 Census, and the inclusion in the G-Cloud 2 framework agreement will strengthen the corporation's IT service activities across the broader UK public sector.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 120,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The corporation's net sales for 2011 were $46.5 billion.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
