Spectra Logic Ranks in Top 10 percent of Government GSA Contractors for 3rd Consecutive Year

  • Spectra Logic continues its proven record of success supporting the federal, state and local government agencies, ranking in the Top 10% of Government GSA contractors for the 3rd year in a row. 

  • Exemplifying this success, Spectra’s Federal sales comprised more than 20 percent of overall company revenue in 2009.

Spectra Logic today announced that it ranked in the top ten percent of U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) information technology (IT) Schedule 70 contractors for 2009. This is the third consecutive year Spectra Logic has ranked as a top vendor based on annual revenues of pre-approved GSA Schedule 70 IT products and services purchased by federal, state and local government agencies. Spectra Logic’s Federal sales division has a proven record of success supporting government organizations, and its sales comprise more than 20 percent of overall company revenue.

"Federal, state and local government agencies want backup and archive solutions that can easily handle large, fast-growing data volumes and high data availability, while helping to deliver greener IT environments that use less energy and minimize floor space," said Brian Grainger, vice president of worldwide sales, Spectra Logic. "Spectra Logic’s solutions are ideally suited for the government market – from high density, energy-efficient tape libraries to disk-based deduplication appliances that reduce stored data volumes."

Spectra Logic added several new products and services to the GSA schedule in 2009, including the Spectra T-Finity enterprise tape library, the Spectra T680 mid-range tape library, Spectra’s disk-based nTier Deduplication product line, media, backup application software and TranScale upgrade service options. Spectra Logic’s archive and backup products have been listed on GSA Schedule 70 since 2003 under GSA contract number GS-35F-0563K.

“The high-capacity Spectra T-Finity tape library enables large enterprise-class organizations to protect, archive and quickly access petabytes of classified and unclassified data,” said Mark Weis, director of federal sales, Spectra Logic. “T-Finity’s inclusion on the GSA Schedule 70 simplifies the purchasing process for our federal, state and local government customers.”

GSA establishes long-term government-wide contracts with commercial firms to provide access to more than 11 million commercial products and services that can be ordered directly from GSA Schedule contractors. The Information Technology Schedule 70 (a Multiple Award Schedule) grants agencies direct access to commercial experts who can thoroughly address the needs of the government IT Community through 20 Special Item Numbers (SINS).  These SINs cover the most general purpose commercial IT hardware, software and services.

In addition to GSA, Spectra Logic’s products are also listed on several Government Acquisition Contracts including ITES, NETCENTS and SEWP.
