The ViON Team

Team Overview

ViON is a data management solutions and hardware provider with over 33 years of experience supporting federal, Department of Defense (DoD), state, local, and education markets.  We work in the highest levels of Enterprise data center missions as well as tactical edge solutions such as intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems for the war fighter.  ViON offers storage, servers, and switching solutions from all major manufacturers in the industry.  Of note, ViON is the largest integrator of Hitachi Data Systems (Hitachi) in the federal government, the second largest integrator of IBM, and the most certified integrator of Network Appliances (NetApp) solutions in North America. 

ViON’s cadres of engineers work to develop, deliver, install, integrate, and maintain infrastructure to our customers.  Over 75 percent of our engineers hold TS/SCI level DoD clearances and each has undergone rigorous training given by our supplier manufacturers.  Our teams of Systems Engineers (SE) have developed some of the most cutting edge solutions for our customers.  Additionally, our customers are supported by the ViON Solution Center 24x7x365.  It is based in multiple locations in the U.S. and is staffed by TS/SCI industry specialists.  We offer secure rapid response of our solutions utilizing our SCIF capabilities.  Our file and content division has solutions that enable our customers to understand the data presently stored, whether it is structured or unstructured, and develop solutions that migrate, back up, and tier the data in the most efficient and effective manner.

ViON delivers hardware solutions through performance-based Firm Fixed Price (FFP) contracts under traditional procurement models, as well as under our unique Capacity Services construct.  This latter model is an acquisition strategy that aligns information technology (IT) architecture precisely to the mission it supports, with no unused capacity and the ability to flex both up and down without penalty.  This is not a lease which locks the customer into a price per month; rather, it is a pay-for-what-you-need model, with built-in elasticity without penalties.  Under this model, ViON currently holds the largest single award contract providing the IT foundation to 23 Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Enterprise Computing Centers (DECCs) with operations in Bahrain, Europe, the continental United States, Hawaii, and Korea.  ViON has been delivering hardware/engineering Capacity Services solutions for over 11 years and has nine (9) ongoing contracts through this model.  This is not a lease, which in turn, differentiates ViON from other companies that offer managed services for IT.

Additionally, ViON is well versed in sensitive mission support, as we integrate and maintain hardware solutions across DoD and intelligence communities.  ViON has conducted data center consolidation, backup, disaster recovery (DR), continuity of operations (COOP), cloud enabling solutions, file and content solutions, and more.  Each of these areas is ongoing throughout our federal, state, local, and education business units.

ViON has established a team of small businesses which are leaders in their respective regions, functional areas, and disparate markets.  This includes data analytical software development companies like Zapata Technology and Data Tactics, who have worked on some of the most intense Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) systems within DOD, including various cloud initiatives.

Centuria provides full Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC), engineering and scientific services, hardware/software systems and systems integration, and data management.

Data Tactics provides data architecture, data engineering, data management, and data analytics.

LATG provides project management, software engineering, database administration, systems administration and engineering, information assurance (IA), configuration management, technical writing, and IT subject matter experts with top secret clearances.

GovSG supports the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) Atlantic, Pacific, HQ, and their customers including NAVAIR, NAVSEA, NAVSUP, TRANSCOM, and DISA.  GovSG has demonstrated experience in IA, networking, system-of-systems integration, core services development, cloud computing, Enterprise services, data center operations, engineering and architectural design, and software open source development.  GovSG brings experienced and certified engineers in the areas of design, development, testing, engineering, deployment of security standards, open standards, service oriented architecture, agile development methodologies, IA, and network architecture.  

Zapata Technology provides software services, systems administration, database administration, SAN administration, and computer programming.
