CSC Buys Autonomic Resources for Federal Cloud Market Push

CloudComputer Sciences Corp. (NYSE: CSC) has acquired cloud computing infrastructure provider Autonomic Resources for an undisclosed sum in a push to expand cloud offerings in the federal and other government markets.

The companies said Wednesday CSC seeks to shorten the time-to-market for cloud tools and services certified by the Defense Information Systems Agency and under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program.

Autonomic Resources will become a part of CSC’s North American public sector business, which aims to grow its presence as a provider of infrastructure-as-a-service, platform-as-a-service and software-as-a-service cloud offerings to government agencies.

Nextgov first reported the news of the transaction.
