GAITHERSBURG, Md., 16 June 2011. The Lockheed Martin Corp. Information Systems & Global Solutions segment in Gaithersburg, Md., is introducing the BlackCloud private secure cloud computing solution that provides secure multi-tenancy in the data center for government agencies.

BlackCloud has built-in security features for cloud computing self-provisioning, compliance, and management that enable users to deploy applications in a trusted environment. BlackCloud can support thousands of tenants, and securely segment user computing environments from virtualization to server to network and storage environments, Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) officials say.

Cloud computing involves providing computer services on-demand from computer network where application software and data reside on one or more computer nodes in the network. Cloud computing helps many different computers and data storage devices to connect via the network. Over the past year or so, the U.S. federal government is moving quickly toward cloud computing.

BlackCloud integrates several different cloud computing architectures from members of the two-year-old Lockheed Martin Cyber Security Alliance, which includes Lockheed Martin, Cisco Systems Inc. in San Jose, Calif.; NetApp in Sunnyvale, Calif.; and VMware Inc. in Palo Alto, Calif.

BlackCloud is a turnkey pre-integrated consensus audit guideline (CAG)secure private cloud designed to help government agencies comply with security requirements.
