Press Release

IceWEB to Participate in U.S. Government Cloud Computing Initiative

IceWEB to Offer Cloud Storage & Applications to Government Agencies via GSA Schedule

IceWEB has announced that it is participating in the U.S. government's cloud computing initiative via the GSA schedule GS-35-F-4143D. The initiative was discussed in a press conference by the Obama Administration on Tuesday, September 15th.

John R. Signorello, CEO of IceWEB said of the Initiative, "IceWEB has been providing products and services to the Federal Government for many years. We are excited to see the government responding so adroitly to changes in the technology marketplace and we plan to participate in the Cloud Computing Initiative very actively. Our Iplicity products are an enabling technology for the adoption of Cloud based Data Storage, one of the key areas of need that this initiative addresses. Our IceWEB Online Inc., Software-As-A-Service (SAAS) offerings map directly to several other key areas within the initiative. We feel that our existing products and services are a natural fit for this new government effort and believe that the company can gain a significant amount of new, highly profitable business as a result."

Tim McNamee, Director of Federal Business Channels, stated, "We will be meeting with key officials and government agencies to assist in streamlining Information Technology (IT) operations through the delivery of cloud computing through virtual server, virtual desktop, SAAS, and cloud storage offerings. Our Iplicity platform was designed to support the major virtualization platforms from VMware, Citrix, Zen and Microsoft. The Iplicity Enterprise Platform will ship immediately as a Government Edition, offering all government contracting and purchasing agents significant discounts to our commercially available products."

The new government website for the Cloud Computing Initiative is: https://www.apps.gov/cloud/advantage/main/start_page.do.
