Sponsored by Businesswire

Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) announced today
that it is the first company worldwide to achieve VMware Certified
Partner Architecture for the latest Validated Design, version 5.0,
demonstrating its commitment to deliver advanced software-defined data
center (SDDC) solutions.

SAIC is a VMware
Enterprise Solution Provider
, delivering on-premises private and
hybrid cloud-based IT environments to federal and commercial customers.
SAIC can architect, build, migrate, and operate tailored solutions using
VMware technologies and services. SAIC’s solution provides a private
cloud that can be quickly scaled up (or down) and allows existing VMware
virtualized data center clients to extend or move their workloads. Also,
as a VMware Certified Architecture Partner, we are able to certify our
own automations, develop a library of SAIC-proprietary automations, and
can create and certify custom automations for customers.

“We are excited to be the first and only company to earn VMware’s latest
design certification. This certification expands our current suite of
offerings and enables us to continue to provide the latest technologies
to our customers,” said Coby Holloway, SAIC vice president of Enterprise

Using cloud, customers can rapidly scale up or contract capacity when
needed, migrate workloads, and establish cloud-based backup and disaster
recovery scenarios, while still maintaining a test, training, or lab

For SAIC customers, this new certification further improves their
ability to:

  • Reduce large, complex SDDC deployments from 6-8 months to 6-8 weeks.
  • Streamline data center and hybrid cloud deployment costs.
  • Heighten security and simplifies IT operations and maintenance through
    the use of pre-certified automations and design templates.
  • Reduce configuration drift strengthening cloud-based backups.
