DLT Solutions Awarded NCPA Contract for Cloud Computing and Web Services

DLT Solutions, a leading value-added reseller in government information technology (IT) software and services, today announced that it has been awarded a National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance (NCPA) contract. Through the NCPA contract, customers will have access to a streamlined procurement process and reduced costs for a portfolio of cloud computing and Web services technologies through DLT Solutions.

NCPA is a nationwide government purchasing cooperative encompassing 90,000 agencies from both the public and nonprofit sectors. These agencies are eligible to utilize DLT Solutions’ NCPA cooperative purchasing contract including: K-12, higher education, city, county, state, and all non-profit organizations.

“We continually strive to provide our customers with the most streamlined and cost effective means of procuring IT products and services,” explained David Blankenhorn, chief cloud technologist and leader of the DLT Cloud Advisory Group. “This NCPA contract is a significant win for us in the cloud computing space. This contract gives our public sector customers a much better option to procure cloud services than just swiping a credit card and expensing the costs. It also provides access to DLT’s exceptional support and professional services.”

Dedicated to providing customers with knowledge and advice on cloud computing technology, the DLT Cloud Advisory Group helps customers navigate current mandates, available solutions and the best options for your environment. In addition, the Cloud Advisory Group has authored a cloud computing reference written specifically for public sector IT professionals titled “Cloud Computing for Govies” which can be downloaded for free by clicking here.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
