The Defense Information Systems Agency has started soliciting white papers from industry stakeholders for a program that seeks to build a prototype centralized control plane for managing on-premises cloud assets, traditional virtualized platforms and host-connected tools.
The DISA Hosting and Compute Center plans to award an other transaction authority for the prototyping project as part of the solicitation for the Distributed Hybrid Multi-Cloud program, which seeks to modernize HaCC’s server infrastructure by creating a single platform that consolidates all x86 hosting environments, the agency said Wednesday.
The agency expects the prototype platform to be housed in a consolidated stack within multiple data centers, leverage a zero trust architecture, provide interoperability with existing enterprise tools, be equipped with a customizable central plane for additional internal services or modules and have a continuous integration and continuous delivery automation pipeline to manage various integration tasks such as scaling and deployments, according to a solicitation notice published Monday.
White papers are due Oct. 12.
In March, DISA sought information on the DHMC prototype development program.
