Social Security Administration Wants Information on Private Cloud

CloudThe Social Security Administration has issued a request for information on private cloud software packages as it seeks to automate processes, FCW reported Wednesday.

Frank Konkel writes interested vendors are asked to submit data on product compliance such as a web-based portal, unified service catalog, performance monitoring, virtual machine life-cycle management, multitenancy, capacity planning and asset management.

The SSA intends to combine the software with VMware’s (NYSE: VMW) server infrastructures in order to build a self-service virtual machine portal, automate administrative tasks, recover unused resources and maintain infrastructures, according to the report.

Konkel writes the agency also wants to perform capacity analysis, utilization reports and end-user costing through a private cloud platform.
