ORock System Integration Expertise Boosts Agility and DevSecOps of Army Cyber Forces
ORock Technologies, Inc., a hybrid cloud service provider, announced it has engineered a software factory aimed at solving existing deployment problems for U.S. Army cyber warriors.
Last week, Applied Cyber Technologies (ACT) – a component of the Army’s PEO EIS’s Defense Cyber Operations (DCO) program – announced key milestones in its DRUID prototype, aka Defense Cyber Operations Resource for Updates, on Innovation and Development.
The U.S. Army project allows vendors and the government to collaborate in code and tighten the feedback loop between industry and the U.S. Army. DRUID applies a modern workflow to legacy virtual machines allowing the ACT office to adopt the latest methods of application delivery.
In the past, defense and business alike mobilized ‘feet on ground’ and suffered delays in order to reconfigure equipment. The DRUID prototype allows vendors to collaborate from anywhere that has internet access. The ORock engineered system wove software vendors onto a common pre-hardened baseline cloud image.
“DRUID solves this legacy problem in the Army’s IT infrastructure by applying modern continuous integration processes and workflows to legacy systems and deployment models,” said Lt. Col. Pete Amara, identified in the press release as ACT’s product lead.
