Enhancing Government Organizations with Managed Cloud Solutions

Security

Government entities depend on having the highest level of security for all data and activities. Loss of sensitive information due to failed technology or a natural disaster can be devastating for a government agency. Agencies who maintain an in-house infrastructure face a high risk of critical data loss. Reliable security is crucial for keeping agencies up and running, especially when thousands of people are depending on their services.

Big Data

Government entities need to gather and manage vast amounts of data, which requires a large network capacity. Most government functions, from building campaigns to measuring data analytics, require heavy infrastructure power. When a government agency relies on physical hardware, they are required to purchase more hardware each time they want to increase their data usage.

Costly Technology

Government organizations are being held back by costly and outdated IT infrastructures. Maintaining in-house infrastructure systems and software pulls money away from other important business sectors, and these IT costs continue to rise every year. As a result, many government entities are forced to dedicate a big portion of their budget to outdated and inefficient IT resources.

Collaboration

Government organizations often have employees working across numerous geographic locations. Employees need to be able to communicate across locations easily and efficiently to keep business processes running smoothly. Most traditional IT systems also require manual software and application updates, which can make it difficult to keep all employees up-to-speed with the latest software all at the same time.

Background

CloudGovernment lets federal, state, and local government agencies offer a variety of self services to citizens. Citizens can access service request statuses, monitor energy and water consumption, and more through web-based user portals provided through your agency’s cloud solution. RapidScale makes it easy to connect your customers to the services they need.

RapidScale’s pay-as-you-go solution lets you scale your cloud resources up or down to meet the needs of your organization. CloudGovernment also makes it easy to connect employees in the office, in the field, or across the world. Employees can log in to a secure cloud environment from any device and collaborate on team projects, promoting remote work and increasing overall productivity.

RapidScale’s CloudCompliance meets most compliance requirements in the government industry, including FISMA and FRCP. CloudCompliance features a user-friendly web based portal software solution that offers government entties an easy, affordable way to prove they are in compliance with the latest standards and industry regulations. RapidScale also offers a built-in smart help feature and 24/7 support hotline to assist with troubleshooting.

RapidScale’s cloud technology does not get viruses, slow down over time, or require IT upkeep maintenance. This greatly reduces your organization’s fixed costs and eliminates the need to constantly update your equipment with new technology. RapidScale’s pay-as-you-go model lets you scale your services up or down as needed. After migrating to the cloud, your costs will reflect only the services you need to keep organization up and running.

CloudGovernment

With modern technologies, like cloud computing, and emerging trends, like the use of mobile devices for work, government organizations are becoming eager to reshape their operations and services. Cloud computing can facilitate this process, creating a connected, modernized and innovative government. Unfortunately, many are still hesitant to see the government and cloud computing hand-in-hand, as there is still false perception surrounding the technology.

Well, we think the cloud might surprise these people.

In a sector as critical as the government, it’s important for agencies to take this step into modern computing while working with world-class, reliable cloud services. And today, these services are definitely out there.

See What our Customers are Saying

  • The amount of detail Gary provided me, as well as his responsiveness, was far beyond anything we had with our last vendor. The efficiency of your RFC process is a breath of fresh air! I’m also extremely satisfied with the RapidScale support team as a whole in regards to their proficiency, sense of urgency and etiquette.
  • I checked out some new partner resources – great stuff. We are already getting some good traction here. You guys really offer some great support!!
  • After being introduced to RapidScale at an event, I cannot help but be more impressed each time I hear more. I attended a webinar too, and once again, I’m really impressed with the opportunities. When I looked in your Partner Portal for the first time I thought, “Wow was I crazy for not looking sooner!” Great stuff in there.
  • Austin was amazing, professional, knowledgeable and personable – a true star!
  • I appreciate Steven’s quick response time and friendly demeanor when discussing problems. Great service and follow up!
  • RapidScale has been by far better than [our previous provider]. Our team is so much happier!
  • Our timing satisfaction rating reflects that these were carry-over issues from our prior vendor, but we’re pleased with RapidScale, and Steven’s thoroughness in reviewing and handling through to resolution.
  • I have been thrilled with RapidScale, I love the fact that when I call to initiate a ticket the technicians answer the phone. With [our last provider], we left a message then had to wait for a technician to call back. Sometimes this could take days!  Thank you, I am really happy with your services.
  • Sent a ticket for a server being unresponsive and received a call within a few minutes. Great response and resolution.
  • I believe the technician’s name was David. He was very pro-active on a Saturday. Got the issue resolved quickly. High marks.
  • Thanks for the quick response and resolution!  And I appreciate the fact that the tech gave information about what the problem was, how it was fixed, etc. That is always better than a simple “it’s now fixed”.
  • The level of service that we have received from RapidScale has been completely awesome.  All of our IT team and the owner has commented on it.  You guys are doing a fantastic job!
  • It’s been great so far having RapidScale host our email. We had it in-house before and that was just may more trouble than it was worth.
  • We’ve been extremely pleased with the service and customer support RapidScale has provided us. We don’t have a large IT staff and so the ability to lean on them has been perfect.
  • We’ve now transferred almost our entire company into RapidScale’s cloud. We started with just our email – we moved from in-house to hosted – then we moved the rest of our servers into the RapidScale cloud and now we’re in the final stages of implementing our virtual desktops! It’s really incredible to have everything running in the cloud and to have it all be so easy.
  • Working with RapidScale has been great so far. Our organization had a lot of our servers in-house and it was such a pain. It’s 1,000 times better now that we moved it all to the cloud.
  • RapidScale quite literally re-invented our IT situation. It was a complete mess before and we are absolutely THRILLED with everything that they’ve helped us to accomplish. Our network runs smoother and our virtual environments are the best addition we’ve made in a very long time.
  • The whole “cloud” thing was incredibly daunting when we first started exploring it for our business. We didn’t really understand the way everything worked and how it was going to help us get past some of the technology speed bumps we had. I worked with the RapidScale sales team and they were really very helpful and made me completely comfortable with the solution. We’ve been running on the CloudOffice interface for about 4 months now and are 100% satisfied and so happy we made the choice to move to RapidScale.
  • RapidScale helped to not only significantly lower our costs, but to help make our work environment more productive as well as more reliable and stable.
  • I LOVE THIS TECHNOLOGY.  I am so excited to be in this new phase within our organization. As a proud partner of RapidScale, this week alone I’ve dealt with 3 major consultations in Colorado with hundreds of employees each! This technology is truly exciting stuff. They make the process so easy, from training, to quoting, to installation! I LOVE HOW EASY THAT WAS. Amazing. You all ROCK!
