Carpathia Ensures Always-On Service for GovDelivery
Carpathia, a trusted cloud operator and leading provider of compliant cloud services and managed hosting, announced that GovDelivery, leading provider of cloud-based public sector communication solutions, has turned to Carpathia to provide secure and compliant colocation services out of its Dulles, VA-based IBX Vault, one of the industry’s most advanced, secure and federally compliant data centers.
GovDelivery’s Communications Cloud solution currently enables more than 1,000 public sector organizations worldwide to connect with more people and to get those people to take action. To ensure seamless operations for clients, GovDelivery is establishing a Northern Virginia site to provide redundancy for their data center in Minnesota.
“Our platform plays a critical role in helping government agencies better serve their citizens, so delivering always-on, secure and compliant communications is a must,” said Gerry Hansen, Director of Operations, GovDelivery. “Carpathia understood the unique needs of our organization and was able to deliver the right solution to meet our high standards for availability, redundancy and compliance and support us as we continue to scale the business for years to come.”
After a thorough review of capabilities, policies, procedures and data center physical and environmental controls, including NIST 800-53 and AT101 SOC2 designation, GovDelivery chose Carpathia’s IBX Vault. The solution delivers a multi-carrier bandwidth solution with cross connect capabilities into GovDelivery. Carpathia’s agnostic approach to supporting bandwidth and private connections provides the options and flexibility to enable GovDelivery to connect into the network according to their preferred path.
“GovDelivery needed a high-performance data center that could provide redundancy in the event of a disaster, easily enable cross connect capabilities into GovDelivery and meet rigorous security policies and procedures,” said Stu Fleagle, Vice President, Carpathia Government Solutions. “Our past performance serving the government market and over 50 Authorizations to Operate made Carpathia and the IBX Vault an easy choice for the highly-selective GovDelivery team.”
