Savvis wins $1.1M cloud hosting, managed service contract with the FCC

Savvis, CenturyLink's (NYSE: CTL) data center and hosting subsidiary, has secured an up to $1.1 million new cloud hosting contract with the FCC.

Under the terms of the agreement, Savvis Federal Systems will provide public cloud services for, and the commission's other public website domains. As an Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) contract, Savvis will also help the FCC migrate its existing web site infrastructure to one of CenturyLink's data centers.

This is not the first time Savvis and CenturyLink have worked with the FCC.

The telco also won two task orders last September to provide private Wide Area Network (WAN) services and Managed Trusted Internet Protocol Services (MTIPS) to the regulator via a five-year contract it said could be worth nearly $10 million.

Securing this latest contract comes at a time when CenturyLink's Savvis subsidiary continues to be profitable.

In Q2 2013, revenues from the Data Hosting segment that Savvis runs rose 7.4 percent year-over-year with gains in both colocation and managed hosting. Colocation revenues rose 2.1 percent to $145 million, while managed hosting revenues rose 21 percent to $134 million.
