Data Driven Cloud Series Q&A: Value Added Resellers and Manufacturers

Moving to the cloud is no small task - data questions, infrastructure questions, contract questions abound!


NetApp and our partners answer our clients' cloud questions every day - to ensure their cloud journeys match their data needs!


Today’s question is answered by Jack Nichols, Federal Cloud Executive at CDWG


Q: How can value added resellers and manufacturers help agencies with their cloud decisions?


A: Whether an agency chooses a public or private cloud delivery model, resellers and equipment manufacturers can help agencies find a solution that is mission and cost effective for any IT service. 


Look at vendors as true partners to size, scope, and custom configure the cloud infrastructure to fit specific Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FEDRAMP) and Department of Defense (DoD) Impact Level requirements. This way, efficiencies and cost savings can be realized as soon as possible.
