NexGen’s n5 Storage System was recently named a winner in Storage magazine’s ‘Best Storage Product of the Year’ and the ‘Editor’s Choice Award’ for innovation by Virtualization Review. Storage magazine judges gave NexGen high scores for innovation, and highlighted its Storage QoS (quality of service) and use of PCIe solid state drives (SSDs) in a hybrid architecture. In addition, NexGen’s unique Storage QoS capabilities for mission critical applications, in mixed-workload and virtual server environments, were validated by an Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) lab test.

“We are excited to work with NexGen to offer our clients in federal, state and local governments new innovative technology that addresses challenges in storage not available previously. In addition to the strength of its storage QoS capabilities, NexGen Storage brings unique value to the market with an innovative tiering architecture that delivers high performance and affordable capacity. NexGen enables customers to move data in real-time between high-performing solid-state drives and economical capacity disk drives,” said Linda Shugart, HPC Solutions CEO.

”HPC’s recent BPA award has enabled us to work with them on an exciting project with a notable Denver area customer,” said Mike Koponen, Director of business development. “NexGen’s ability to provide consistent application performance and offer the lowest combined $/GB and $/IOP combines to provide a powerful
midrange storage solution.”

HPC Solutions Awarded New BPA’s from the GSA !!!

GSA Advantage
GSA, in partnership with the Department of Treasury, launched FSSI in November 2005 in response to a May 2005 memo from the Office of Management and Budget/Office of Federal Procurement Policy requiring agencies to identify commodities that could be purchased more efficiently through strategic sourcing. FSSI counts more than 20 federal agencies, both military and civilian, as active participants.

FSSI encourages cross-government collaboration and adoption of industry best practices. This allows the government to aggregate requirements; streamline processes; and leverage its buying power. As a result, best value and repeatable processes are created that can be used in any acquisition environment to drive down the cost of commonly purchased commodities.

This Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative page provides a centralized source for many government-wide and agency specific Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) established against Federal Supply Schedules.

BPAs offer an excellent option for federal agencies and Schedule contractors alike, providing convenience, efficiency, and reduced costs. Contractual terms and conditions are contained in GSA Schedule contracts and are not to be re-negotiated for GSA Schedule BPAs. Therefore, as a purchasing option, BPAs eliminate such contracting and open market costs as the search for sources, the need to prepare solicitations, and the requirement to synopsize the acquisition.

HPC Solutions was recently awarded three BPAs: 

  • GS-26F-Y0020  Video Conferencing Teleconferencing
  • GS-26F-AA010  Servers, Racks, Data Storage, Network Communication Switches and Routers
  • GS-26F-Y0024  Computers, Laptops, Desktops, Notebooks, Netbooks, and Warranties
