BCS expansion plan
BCS Data Center Operations (BCS) proclaims an expansion plan of its solutions portfolio to introduce a new BCS Government Programs division committed to serving the mission of the US and state governments and their partners. The expansion strengthens BCS to respond quickly to essential infrastructure requirements caused by recent government shifts.
Craig Harris has been named Senior Vice President and Chief Government Programs Officer for leading BCS Government Programs efforts. Based in BCS’s Addison, Texas (US), corporate headquarters, he gets into BCS with two years of operations experience, including –
- Management of colocation operations for a leading data center supplier
- Leading the Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure team handling the US government contracts
- Leading IT process-design projects for the federal administration
- Introducing state-of-the-art fulfillment centers for Amazon
The announcement by BCS was made during the consolidation of federal government agencies, a rise in the volume of dispersed confidential workloads, and a push by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to run data center assets and vital infrastructure more effectively.
BCS Government Programs employs the similar delivery model elements effectively used with private industry partners to unraveling serious difficulties facing government agencies, especially those within the undeserved cleared-contractor industry.
Now, BCS has more than 6 million square feet and 350 MW of critical power under contract, comprising a colossal portion managing compliant, highly regulated, uptime-dependent environments, including three of the world’s leading financial service industries.
Early this year, BCS revealed receiving Uptime Institute’s M and amp;O Stamp of Approval. It is a successful Service Operation Control (SOC) 2 Type II report and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) evaluation for the data center campus they operate in Phoenix.
BCS utilizes a complete lifecycle of solutions delivered via trained and certified people, best-in-class processes, and leading technologies via a single integrated delivery system, freeing agencies and their partners to concentrate on accomplishing their primary objective. BCS’s self-performance, single-source model, means BCS workers perform at least 80% of all services.
BCS is an enterprise-level, crucial services company concentrating majorly on data centers.
Danny Crocker, CEO and amp; Founder at BCS, commented: “We’ve known for some time that our operations model, disciplined approach, and nimble, responsive delivery model is uniquely capable of meeting the demands and critical needs of the public sector.”
He further added, “The opportunity to add an executive with Craig’s background and experience to lead BCS Government Programs allowed us to make this strategic move.”
John Hevey, SVP, Chief Technical Services Officer (CTSO) at BCS Data Center Operations, commented: “Most government data center facility management contracts, including cleared work, rely on multiple vendors and subcontractors to perform critical operations, IT services, physical security and maintenance services.”
He further added, “This approach, while common, introduces a level of risk and inefficiency that the public sector is seeking to mitigate.”
