Armada and Carahsoft partner

On March 20, San Francisco, CA-based Armada and Reston, VA-based Carahsoft Technology Corp. announced a new partnership designed to bring Armada’s edge solutions to the public sector. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as Armada’s public sector distributor, making the company’s Commander platform, a single portal for observability and management of all edge operations and Starlink terminals, available through Carahsoft’s reseller partners and NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V, Information Technology Enterprise Solutions – Software 2 (ITES-SW2) and National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) ValuePoint contracts.

“As government agencies invest in resilient infrastructure for their critical missions and expand access to fast and reliable connectivity, the ability to provide Starlink along with mobile and modular compute infrastructure at scale is a game changer for public sector operations at the edge,” said Vlada Barlow, senior vice president of public sector and administration at Armada. “Armada’s rapidly deployable solutions, combined with Carahsoft’s reach and expertise, enable government agencies to operate at the edge within weeks instead of waiting for months or years to provide connectivity and compute infrastructure, even in the most remote environments.”

Armada is an authorized Starlink integrator and has built an enterprise grade management platform which enables Government agencies to easily manage their network remotely. Armada’s Commander platform is the cornerstone of the company’s offerings, providing direct purchase and deployment of Starlink terminals, enterprise-grade management and observability for Starlink assets, real-time alerts and diagnostics, and AI-powered cost analysis and optimization.

These capabilities provide real time decision making for government agencies’ most critical missions, with a focus on serving emergency management, public safety, critical infrastructure, parks, natural resources, border security, transportation, education and healthcare agencies. Additionally, Armada equips the Department of Defense (DoD) and intelligence community (IC) missions with distributed private computing capabilities to the forward edge, as agencies deploy cameras, drones, sensors, autonomous vehicles and other assets that require a large amount of flexible compute power with low latency connectivity.

“Seamless connectivity and resilient compute infrastructure are key priorities for government agencies in today’s technology landscape,” said Steve Jacyna, director of emerging technology at Carahsoft. “Through our partnership with Armada, Starlink and Carahsoft’s extensive reseller network, we extend public sector access to innovative solutions that enable agencies to better manage critical infrastructure and safeguard sensitive citizen data. Together, we are dedicated to enhancing government mission capabilities at the edge and empowering agencies to address unique challenges with confidence.”­­­­
