Overview

Increasing capability, adding flexibility, and improving your security posture are all benefits of the Sev1Cloud solutions with service level commitments.

 

Sev1Cloud minimize IT risks and improves mission availability.

Sev1Cloud

Often referred to as a stack or spectrum of a broad range of services put up on one another, cloud computing is of great value to virtually all types of businesses and industries. However, since its collection of services is really huge, organizations need to identify all of them and embrace components they need the most.

The three major types of cloud computing solutions are Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). Although each has its own significance, your choice of the best option may vary depending upon what products or services you’re dealing in.  Most customers use a variety in their solutions.  For example a customer may choose SaaS for email so the do not have to manage it and choose basic IaaS services for a mission application where more control is required.

Features and Benefits

The foundation for defining services in this market space is NIST. Sev1Tech provides all the NIST 800-145 defined cloud computing services to include Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service). Customers can choose more than one model as each application has different requirements and advancing from basic service to a complete managed cloud services is part of the service lifecycle.  Flexibility to accommodate all mission requirements is essential to this service.  Not all customers within even a single organization will leverage the same services or deployment models.  Sev1Tech’s responsibility as the offeror is to clearly define and document the service model, deployment model, and supporting service level agreements being offered to the customer in all task order responses.

Where is it Being Used?

The service models approved by NIST and leveraged by Sev1Tech are as follows:

NIST Defined Service Models NIST 800-145 Approved Definitions Benefits To Customers
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) The capability provided to the consumer is to provision processing, storage, networks, and other fundamental computing resources where the consumer is able to deploy and run arbitrary software, which can include operating systems and applications. The consumer does not manage or control the underlying cloud infrastructure but has control over operating systems, storage, and deployed applications; and possibly limited control of select networking components (e.g., host firewalls). Provides application owners the ability to manage this applications and operating systems.  This provides a more resilient and flexible environment to operate mission systems.
Platform as a Service (Paas) The capability provided to the consumer is to deploy onto the cloud infrastructure consumer-created or acquired applications created using programming languages, libraries, services, and tools supported by the provider. The consumer does not manage or control the underlying cloud infrastructure including network, servers, operating systems, or storage, but has control over the deployed applications and possibly configuration settings for the application-hosting environment. Provides the customer a managed compute platform that allows resources to focus on the application layers not the operating layers and infrastructure.  This model is a great way to improve security compliance and reduce mission availability risk.
Software as a Service (Saas) The capability provided to the consumer is to provision processing, storage, networks, and other fundamental computing resources where the consumer is able to deploy and run arbitrary software, which can include operating systems and applications. The consumer does not manage or control the underlying cloud infrastructure but has control over operating systems, storage, and deployed applications; and possibly limited control of select networking components (e.g., host firewalls). For customers that want to focus on their mission and not the supporting IT tools this option provides the highest level or service to the end-user.
