Dell will install an on-premise, federal government compliant private cloud for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).
The enterprise IT company said it designed the cloud solution for the NRC to help it achieve its business needs of reducing IT costs, simplifying operations, providing new technology and capability to the NRC user community and satisfying the Office of Management and Budget direction for each agency to establish a cloud instance.
Through the private cloud deployment process, Dell Services Federal Government will help the NRC consolidate data centers, replace aging equipment and take advantage of modernized IT services to deliver improved IT performance and an enhanced customer experience.
“We’re focused on helping customers select the right cloud for their unique business needs, including security and compliance. The NRC is a perfect example as it has strict standards and requirements that its systems must support in order to carry out its vital regulatory oversight mission,” said George Newstrom, vice president, Dell Services Federal Group.
NRC’s mission is to regulate the civilian use of nuclear power and materials in order to protect the health and safety of the U.S. people, environment and the nation. It licenses and inspects nuclear facilities and materials, enforcing compliance with strict standards and requirements.
In addition to Dell Services’ private cloud installation for NRC, Dell currently supports the NRC Office of Information Services and all NRC users, including data center operations and other information technology services at the NRC headquarters and NRC regional offices across the United States, under a contract awarded in 2011.
