Verizon Joins General Dynamics-Led Army Private Cloud Contract Team

Verizon (NYSE: VZ) has joined a General Dynamics-led (NYSE: GD) team that won a position on a $249.8 million U.S. Army contract to provide cloud computing initiatives.

The New York City-based telecommunications firm said it will help the Army consolidate its data centers under the Area Processing Centers Army Private Cloud 2 initiative.

HP Enterprise Services (NYSE: HPQ) and Northrop Grumman Corp. (NYSE: NOC) also have positions on the five-year, multiple-award contract.

The company will implement cloud computing in fixed and mobile suites and create a secure platform for the fixed suites.

The mobile suites require mobile data centers.

The Army will use the APC2 program to manage information processes as it plans to use the cloud in application migration, hosting and administration.

Verizon’s Terremark IT services business unit will perform work.
