A Platform as a Service for government teams

Focus on the services you need to build — cloud.gov makes it faster, simpler, and more secure.

We understand what it takes to get from day one to delivery.

cloud.gov offers a fast way for federal agencies to host and update websites (and other web applications, such as APIs), so employees and contractors can skip managing server infrastructure and instead focus on developing services that support agency missions.

cloud.gov has a Provisional Authority to Operate (P-ATO) at the Moderate impact level from the FedRAMP Joint Authorization Board (JAB), which means cloud.gov complies with federal security requirements. When you build a system on cloud.gov, your system inherits this compliance, which substantially reduces the amount of compliance work you need to do.

Imagine a secure cloud environment where your team can get up and running in minutes, then build, manage, and release applications with a radically shortened path to achieving Authority to Operate from your agency. This is cloud.gov.

Build great things in the cloud with the expertise you already have.

To get the benefits of cloud hosting, like scalability and savings, you need cloud operations expertise, unless you’re using a Platform as a Service like cloud.gov. cloud.gov takes care of those operations and gives your team easy-to-use self-service tools to manage team member access, application resource and service usage, and application deployments. It’s flexible enough to give you what you need without sticking you with what you don’t. Let your team focus on building the applications you’re responsible for.

Make compliance easier. Give your team their time back.

Launching web applications for a federal agency requires lengthy documentation detailing your compliance with security standards. Creating these docs takes dozens of hours from developers, hours they can’t spend building features your users need. But with cloud.gov, you get Compliance as a Service, too. You can use cloud.gov’s FedRAMP JAB P-ATO to handle huge parts of the compliance process. Just document what you build on top of the platform. Could your team use the extra time?

Take advantage of centrally-managed security.

Because cloud.gov enforces a consistent environment and gives each team a separate environment, no other team using the platform can change the environment in a way that hurts your security or compliance. Because every cloud.gov update applies to every application running on the platform, your team benefits from every improvement. Focus your security engineering resources on your custom application code while cloud.gov keeps the platform patched and monitored.

Is cloud.gov right for you?

cloud.gov was built by a government team for government teams. Here’s who we’re looking for:

  • Your team (either in-house or on contract) serves a federal government organization.
  • Your team has the power to push applications.
  • You or your teams can use the IAA/MOU process to pay GSA for cloud.gov.
  • Your applications are Moderate impact level or lower.
  • Each of your applications listens to a single port and stores configuration in the environment.
