Hewlett Packard Enterprise has booked a potential 10-year, $2 billion contract to supply high-performance computing technology and associated services to the National Security Agency.
NSA sought an industry partner to help it improve its forecasting and analysis functions through the use of HPC technology that incorporates artificial intelligence and new data management storage techniques, HPE said Wednesday.
The agency will use HPE’s GreenLake platform that provides users a fully managed, secure on-premise cloud hosting environment to achieve both agility and flexibility in managing data.
HPE will build and manage the overall offering to be hosted inside a QTS data center and set to go live for NSA starting in 2022 on an as-a-service basis.
