US Department of Defense selects Carahsoft and Red Hat to provide OpenJDK support

Carahsoft Technology has announced that the US Department of Defense (DoD) Enterprise Software Initiative (ESI) has awarded Carahsoft an Agency Catalog Agreement to provide OpenJDK software solutions through Carahsoft’s NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V contract.

Under the Agency Catalog Agreement, Carahsoft will provide Red Hat OpenJDK software subscriptions, maintenance and support to the DoD, US Intelligence Community and Coast Guard.

DoD ESI awarded the Agency Catalog Agreement based on Carahsoft’s competitive pricing for Red Hat’s OpenJDK solutions, leading technical capabilities and support for Java development across operating systems.

“Red Hat’s stewardship of OpenJDK allows communities of developers and users the ability to freely deploy Java to drive innovation within their environments and keeps with our ethos of making software technology open, supported and available,” said Kevin Griffith, Senior Director of DoD Sales at Red Hat.

Carahsoft will promote Red Hat’s Agency Catalog award by leveraging its sales, marketing and contract management capabilities. In addition to these activities, Carahsoft will provide a designated program manager to support the catalog and facilitate the procurement process, as well as provide regular reviews and reports.
