The General Services Administration and Dell EMC have reached a governmentwide enterprise agreement to facilitate the procurement of the companyâ€™s virtual computing environment platforms to help federal agencies advance data center modernization.
The agreement allows federal, local, state and tribal government agencies to place an order for Dell EMCâ€™s VxRail products at tiered discounts through Carahsoft Technologyâ€™s spot on GSAâ€™s IT Schedule 70 contract, the agency said Thursday.
Alan Thomas, commissioner of GSAâ€™s Federal Acquisition Service, said the agreement seeks to reduce duplication in the procurement process.
Carahsoft said Thursday Dell EMCâ€™s VxRail is a category management offering designed to support virtual desktop infrastructure, hybrid cloud and other virtualized workloads and applications and help agencies comply with the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative and the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act.
The agreement for Dell EMC platforms marks Carahsoftâ€™s sixth category management award from GSA.
