Limited utilization. Pockets of interest. </li></ul><ul><li>Keys to Adoption : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Making it easy – to understand, to buy, to transition </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Making it work - positive early experiences – with realized benefits! Incremental steps. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Making it government-relevant – security and compliance </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Represents CHANGE </li></ul>

  4. 4. How ServerVault Approaches Cloud Computing for Federal Agencies <ul><li>We leverage our niche position - ServerVault manages IT infrastructure exclusively per key Federal Agency security and compliance requirements - not typically achievable within most commercial data center environments (FISMA, OMB DITSCAP/ DIACAP, etc.) </li></ul><ul><li>We’re flexible and goal-oriented – Turnkey compliant services customized for each client. Defined SLAs, QASPs and other measurement-driven best practices help define victory conditions and gauge success </li></ul><ul><li>We partner - ServerVault collaborates with Government Agencies, system integrators, HW/SW companies, and other entities to leverage our infrastructure and services for cloud deployments ( www.fedcloud.com ) </li></ul>
