Lockheed Martin, a pioneer in providing energy efficient designs for data centers has been assigned the contract of developing energy efficient data center for the U.S Department of Labor (DOL). The contact has been supposedly signed for $54.9 million, and is expected to create energy efficiency in the key DOL data centers by data consolidation.
The contract called the indefinite delivery/indefinite quality is for a period of seven years. According to this contract, the DOL data centers will be moved to a more secure facility, and then will be shifted to the cloud for more energy efficiency. The renewed data center is going to be designed to meet the norms of the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative.
“Lockheed Martin has a record of implementing data center consolidation for the Department of Labor, and we are excited to extend our services across the agency,” said Frank Armijo, vice president of Lockheed Martin Energy Solutions. “We understand that data center consolidation, cloud and other green information technology practices can help our customers save energy and get more out of their budgets.”
Lockheed Martin consolidated and moved a DOL data center previously and has been supporting their IT needs for more than eight years now. Lockheed Martin is laso an expert in providing energy efficient solutions to both utility and commercial customers. Lockheed Martin has contracts from eight of the top 10 utilities across America. It is known for its expertise in providing energy efficiency programs, and smart grid and cyber security solutions.
