Mainframe Service for the Processor Environment
Held By: URS
Available Products: Mainframe processing capacity for DISA (as-a-Service)
Period of Performance: 06/01/2005 to 09/30/2027
The purpose of this contract is to provide a reliable, responsive, and cost-effective mainframe infrastructure that is dynamically scalable and able to adjust to changes in user demand, both increases and decreases, and priced on a utility (“as used”) basis.
In 2005 the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) made a strategic decision to stop acquiring mainframe computers, and begin contracting for on-site computing capacity – Mainframe as a Service. In October 2006 DISA awarded a consortium of contractors (URS, ESCgov and Sirius) an eight-year contract to provide mainframe computing service for the IBM z/OS and z/VM operating environments. In the years since 2006 DISA has experienced lower costs, increased flexibility, and easier access to new technologies by converting to Mainframe as a Service.
Key features of the Mainframe Service:
- Mainframe computing capacity is provided for a monthly fee, which is based on the amount of capacity DISA orders during each month of the contract.
- DISA increases use (and associated costs) when workloads increase; DISA decreases use (and associated costs) when workloads are smaller.
- All systems reside at government facilities, but the contractor retains title to all systems provided. The government uses operational funds for monthly service fees.
- The contractor is responsible for maintaining all systems, and for providing technology refreshments to systems as they reach the end of their supported lifecycle.
