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 ( ) </li></ul>
