Federal agencies rely on critical, demanding applications to serve the public. High availability, security, and performance at lower costs are driving many towards cloud computing.

Phacil has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure to host government applications and infrastructure. We offer our clients high availability, security and performance in a cost-effective model that  reduces the overhead and capital expenditures required by an on-premise infrastructure.

Phacil has access to a multitude of cloud providers and platforms, ensuring that the right solution is deployed for your needs. This decision is based on an in-depth analysis of your business needs and careful selection of a provider to meet those objectives and ensure your project is completed successfully

Delivering Excellence In Cloud Computing & Managed Services:

Phacil’s breadth and depth of experience across cloud services has resulted in improved infrastructures at reduced costs:

Missile Defense Agency
Phacil managed the development and sustainment of MDA’s global web portals, Classified MDA Knowledge Online (CMKO) and the Unclassified MDA Knowledge Online (UMKO). We stood up a new Microsoft SharePoint‐based MDA environment and migrated within 12 months the organization structure and content from the old Oracle portal. This migration exceeded industry standard of 18 months, saved MDA over $5M in labor costs and reduced the portal overhead by 20%. MDA’s CIO stated Phacil’s migrations “set the Gold Standard.” Regarding the CMKO migration, he upped the ante, saying Phacil had “set the Platinum Standard.” In recognition of our success, Phacil won the MDA’s Award for Technical Excellence.

USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS)
We decomposed 682 business requirements into 4,800 system requirements and developed 1.725M lines of code in 36 weeks. The entire project was designed, developed, and tested using AWS. The 5,000 test cases that were executed involved 10,500 pages of documentation.

National Science Foundation (NSF)
Phacil provides O&M for NSF’s data center, network, and enterprise services, as well as support for a Hot/Cold Disaster Recovery site. We maintain all infrastructure in support of the 300,000 end‐users of NSF’s externally facing grants management systems. Phacil reduced the data center rack footprint by 50% starting in 2013 and has virtualized more than 70% of the total servers in the environment. Our experienced staff also redesigned the core network infrastructure, modernizing the backbone from 1GB/s to 10GB/s.

U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM)
We upgraded the Surface Deployment Distribution Command (SDDC)’s 30 aging servers with new servers in a virtualized environment, saving our customer money in support of a critical global network. This included upgrading all servers and network equipment at the alternate site ensuring the SDDC’s mission readiness.
