DOD Turns to Cloud to Enhance its Fighting Force
Cloud Constellation Corporation and Assured Communications Advisors International (ACAI) have entered into a reseller agreement to deliver Cloud Constellation’s SpaceBelt Data Security as a Service (DSaaS), focusing on government and Department of Defense (DOD) organizations.
The DOD established the Cloud Executive Steering Group (CESG) to develop and execute a strategy to accelerate the adoption of cloud architectures and cloud services that will better enable the DOD’s global mission, and enhance the readiness and effectiveness of its fighting force. The combination of SpaceBelt DSaaS and ACAI’s managed data center services will provide the DOD with a fully integrated, global service for the storage and delivery of highly sensitive information with the greatest level of security and availability, contributing to CESG’s ability to deliver on its mission.
SpaceBelt DSaaS is a patented, scalable, space-based cloud service for securing high-value and highly sensitive data assets by providing data storage in space and global, secure managed network services. SpaceBelt services are isolated from inherently vulnerable global terrestrial networks.
A Low Earth Orbit (LEO) constellation of 12 satellites is networked with a redundant, self-healing optical ring for high availability.
The SpaceBelt network communicates with secure access points located at government and military facilities via connectivity with geosynchronous satellites.
