U.S. Navy’s SPAWAR awards ViON $50 million capacity as a service contract


ViON was awarded a seven-year $50 million contract for Capacity as a Service (CaaS) from the U.S. Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR). The contract will serve the data center infrastructure needs for Research, Development, Testing, and Evaluation (RDT&E) core infrastructures, laboratory and data center environments.

The contract is for on-premises CaaS, which aligns the Department of Defense (DoD) to meet the provisions of the government’s Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI). The acquisition model is groundbreaking for the US Navy.

As the Navy’s information warfare systems command, SPAWAR develops, delivers and sustains communications and information capabilities for warfighters. SPAWAR provides the hardware and software needed to execute Navy missions.
