ViON Corp. has won a seven-year, $139 million contract to operate the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office‘s enterprise cloud storage platforms.
The company will implement storage managed services across three data centers of the USPTO for business continuance and resiliency functions, ViON said Tuesday.
“ViON has gone to extraordinary lengths and assumed the risk of substantial penalties to assure the USPTO that they will have uninterrupted storage service for years to come, ” said Tom Frana, CEO of ViON.
ViON will also work to modernize storage operations across the data center sites and replace the agency’s on-premise storage platform.
Under the insourcing practice, the company will own and maintain the storage infrastructure.
