CARY, N.C., Dec. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Autonomic Resources, a Government Cloud Service Provider (CSP) today announced it has received its Tier 1 Partner status and has aligned itself with a leading information technology organization, Hitachi Data Systems Federal Corporation (HDS Federal). Together, Autonomic and HDS Federal form a business and consulting partnership to address the burgeoning US Government cloud computing market.

As the first CSP to achieve FedRAMP and DoD wide Provisional Authorizations for its IaaS solutions on ARC-P, Autonomic Resources has engaged with HDS in creating multiple storage and compute solutions for the US Government sector. "Autonomic has consistently shown its capabilities in creating and accrediting cloud service offerings for the US Government. Our partnership with HDS Federal is the next logical step in keeping Autonomic's cloud service offerings progressive and full featured. We will again lead the market with secure, highly sought after ARC-P offerings," stated John Keese, President and CEO of Autonomic Resources, LLC.

"HDS Federal recognizes Autonomic as a leader in US Government cloud services. Autonomic is a company with innovative ideas that help our collective customers solve complex cloud service needs. Finding and partnering with progressive, forward leaning companies like Autonomic is key to HDS Federal and helps our customers satisfy their IT missions," said Michael Tanner, CEO of HDS Federal Corporation.

This relationship promotes Autonomic as a HDS Federal Tier 1 Systems Integrator and helps to further assure HDS Federal and Autonomic can create, market, and address the US Government's cloud service needs. "With pending legislation like the Federal Data Center Consolidation Act of 2013 (S. 1611) requiring federal agencies to move to FedRAMP certified clouds, the relationship is timely and strategic for Autonomic, HDS Federal, and our collective customers," indicated Keese.
