You don't have to build your tech from the ground up.

cloud.gov helps government agencies buy, build, and authorize modern cloud services.

Why cloud.gov?

Compliant from the start

cloud.gov offers a fast way for federal agencies to host and update websites, APIs, and other applications. Employees and contractors can focus on developing mission-critical applications, leaving server infrastructure management to us.

FedRAMP authorized

cloud.gov has a FedRAMP Joint Authorization Board (JAB) authorization, which means it complies with federal security requirements. When you build a system on cloud.gov, you leverage this compliance and reduce the amount of work you need to do.

Who we work with

Federal Election Commission

FEC website

By hosting FEC.gov on cloud.gov and moving its data to the cloud, the FEC anticipates saving 85% in hosting costs and is better prepared for peak traffic events.

Although the dates of FEC’s traffic spikes may be predictable, it’s still hard to prepare for the extra demands on the system. “A server that’s still operable but near the end of its life can have unexpected problems” and buying a new server can take months. But on cloud.gov, “this isn’t our problem.”
