BAE Systems and Freedom PST Aim to Support Federal Data Center Consolidation Efforts


RESTON, Virginia - BAE Systems is collaborating with Freedom PST, one of the nation’s leading cloud computing firms, to provide solutions to the federal government as it looks to save money and protect the environment by consolidating data centers.

BAE Systems and Newtown, Pennsylvania-based Freedom PST will work to fill a growing need for cloud computing expertise in the federal government, the world’s largest consumer of information technology. Cloud computing represents a major shift in the way IT services are delivered. Instead of buying servers and then paying to store and maintain them, customers tap into a pool of shared resources and pay only for what they use.

Under a federal directive, agencies have until the end of the summer to submit plans to consolidate and reduce data centers, a move projected to save taxpayer dollars through property sales and reduced maintenance costs and energy bills.

“Cloud computing means more efficiency and better use of resources, two ways that this combined effort can serve the public sector,” said Tom Sechler, vice president and general manager for civilian systems and solutions at BAE Systems.

“We will offer economically attractive, elastic, scalable and highly secure solutions, from Infrastructure as a Service to Software as a Service. The requirement for advanced security is especially critical for our market and is central to our offering. We look at Freedom PST as a full-fledged, strategic teammate that can help us deliver quality cloud computing solutions,” added Sechler.

“Teaming with BAE Systems provides Freedom with the guidance to transfer our state-of-the-art commercial enterprise cloud computing services and technology into practical public sector solutions, assuring our mutual success today and in future pursuits,” said Joel Dayne, president of Freedom PST.
