Government customers seeking to better monitor their e-business systems and applications and those looking for fault-tolerant servers can find help in a pair of alliances announced Monday by GTSI Corp.
GTSI, a business-to-government IT solutions provider, now offers its public-sector customers Internet services management (ISM) solutions from Resonate Inc. The second alliance makes GTSI the first B2G provider to offer the complete line of hardware fault-tolerant servers from Resilience Corp.
Resonate's ISM platform is a family of software and services that perform real-time automated corrective action on e-business applications. The company already counts the National Institutes of Health as a customer.
"The announcement with GTSI is very significant to Resonate since [GTSI is] the largest government channel partner for [us]," a Resonate spokeswoman said. "We feel that this partnership will really help us gain more ground in the public sector. In fact, we started working with GTSI right away and have since closed a deal with the National Science Foundation."
Resonate has some government clients, but this will be Resilience's introduction to the public-sector market.
Resilience products and services run all Sun Microsystems Inc. Solaris applications without modification and will be available through GTSI's National Institutes of Health-Electronic Computer Store and NASA's Scientific and Engineering Workstation Procurement contracts.
"Our servers are an excellent fit for the government space," said Denny Olmsted, the president and chief executive officer at Resilience, in a release. "They deliver the fault tolerance that mission-critical government applications require in an affordable, low-maintenance system that runs all Solaris applications."
