Why Read This Report

USA.gov, one of the busiest US government Web sites, has achieved significant cost savings by embracing cloud computing. The US General Services Administration (GSA) has migrated all of the core resources of the USA.gov Web portal to Terremark's IaaS platform, The Enterprise Cloud. By using The Enterprise Cloud, USA.gov can maintain a small persistent footprint and deploy on-demand scaling as traffic fluctuates. GSA said this migration to the cloud has brought about a number of benefits and savings, such as avoiding idle server costs while still accommodating huge traffic spikes, acting on users' requests in real time, and applying security constraints atop this platform. With infrastructure flexibility at the foundation, GSA has found both cost savings and capability improvement with its new cloud platform.
