DLT Solutions Awarded Cloud Services Contract by State of Texas Department of Information Services

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

DLT Solutions, a leading value-added reseller in government information technology (IT) software and services, announced that it has been awarded a cloud services contract by the State of Texas Department of Information Services (DIR).  Through this contract, state and local government entities as well as educational institutions in Texas and beyond will now have fast and cost-effective means to procure cloud-ready solutions from Amazon Web Services (AWS), a leading provider of IT infrastructure and web services. The contract also includes associated managed services from DLT Solutions.

AWS offers a reliable, highly scalable, low-cost infrastructure platform in the cloud that provides agencies and organizations with the ability to instantly spin-up hundreds or thousands of servers and storage in minutes reducing delivery time to constituents.  Moving to the AWS cloud also offers agencies and organizations substantial cost savings, as well as the ability to modernize and streamline their IT operations.

“DLT Solutions is an Advanced Consulting Partner and Reseller for AWS allowing us to provide our customers with the confidence and guidance to ensure the best solution to fit their needs and requirements,” said Rick Marcotte, president and CEO of DLT Solutions.  “Adding a new Texas DIR contract for AWS products and solutions opens up a much sought after avenue for customers in the state of Texas looking to move to the cloud.”

The Texas DIR contract is an important procurement vehicle for Texas-based customers seeking to purchase the latest information technology products and services.  Texas DIR leverages the buying power of the State of Texas and delivers access to hundreds of products and services at volume discount pricing.  Texas DIR allows agencies and public organizations to save time and resources by providing easy access to pricing, ordering process and other information.

In 2013, DLT Solutions announced that it added AWS to its GSA IT Schedule 70 (GS-35F-4543G), NIH ECS III, NCPA, and other agency-specific contracts.  For more information about AWS and its cloud computing solutions for public sector customers, visit www.dlt.com/aws
