McLean, VA (PRWEB) July 14, 2011
Daston Corporation, a provider of customized Software-as-a–Service and Cloud (SaaS|Cloud) computing technology solutions, today announced that the State of South Carolina’s Department of Health and Environmental Control has awarded Daston a contract to supply and implement Google Apps for Government.
Under the contract, valued at approximately $800,000, Daston will provide Google’s cloud-based messaging and collaboration solutions and related implementation services to help the department migrate from its existing GroupWise infrastructure. The new Google Apps implementation will provide the department’s 4,500 employees with a more cost-effective, accessible and secure solution.
Google Apps for Government offers a state-of-the-art email system that provides 50X the storage of a typical inbox, while dramatically lowering total cost of ownership. The solution incorporates the latest messaging and collaboration technologies and some of the best practices in the industry for datacenter management, network application security, and data integrity.
“As a Google reseller and integrator, Daston is honored to have been chosen by South Carolina to support its transition to Google Apps for Government,” said Michael Pait, senior vice president of Business Development at Daston. “Our Daston Cloud First professional services team has helped many state and local governments move away from on-premise solutions to enjoy the productivity and cost-savings provided by on-demand cloud-based solutions, and we look forward to helping South Carolina realize these benefits as well.”
Google Apps for Government is available via Daston’s GSA IT 70 schedule and via Apps.Gov. For more information, contact Michael Pait at Daston at (703) 962-8085.
