The ARC-P cloud solution consists of a set of shared orchestration tools located at two geographically separate data centers within the ARC-P boundary. This architecture supports individual availability zones specifically designated for Federal and DoD Mission Partners. The ability to size, scale, and implement virtual machines greatly reduces operational cost and procurement times. The combination of these mandates with the ARC-P system allows the government to meet its goals of agile computing, generating fiscal savings and increasing utilization of federal IT platforms.
GDIT’s ARC-P platform is proud to offer a variety of services to meet the IT computing needs of our Federal and DoD customers. Within the scope of our offerings we provide Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Backup as a Service (BUaaS), Platform as a Service (ARCWRX/PaaS), as well as a dedicated hosts.
ARC-P also provides a dedicated Department of Defense (DoD) private community cloud, milCloud® 2.0, for hosting Impact Level 5 (IL5) and Impact Level 6 (IL6) systems*.
First - to authorize FedRAMP JAB High VMWare IaaS and FedRAMP JAB ATO in 201
Among the first three FedRAMP High ATO’s (FedRAMP JAB ATO in 2016)
First - to offer on-demand multi-tenant native VMware cloud
ARC-P utilizes vCloud Director which provides customer access to their Virtual Machines, as well as the full range of core functionality necessary to build and manage their cloud environment.

• Contains same t-shirt size configurations (vCPU/vGB)
• T-shirt sizes in vCD are established by using Virtual Data Center (VDC) Compute policies to restrict memory/CPU combinations that are available for tenant use
• Operating Systems (OSs) include: Windows 2012/2016/2019, RHEL 6/7, Cent OS 6/7, and no OS
• Includes a 24vCPU series configuration to allow for higher compute options
The cloud management layer is the top layer of the stack. Service consumption occurs at this layer. This layer requests resources and orchestrates the actions of the lower layers from a user interface or application programming interface (API). The cloud management platform is represented by vCloud Director (vCD).
The virtual infrastructure layer controls the access to the underlying physical infrastructure, and controls and allocates resources to the management and tenant workloads. The management workloads consist of elements in the virtual infrastructure layer, itself, together with elements in the cloud management, business continuity, and security layers.
ARC-P systems has an accredited design focused on critical security standards. A secure design reduces risk and increases compliance while providing a governance structure. The security layer outlines the operations and setup required to implement a Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) that is resilient to both internal and external threats. Security services provide access restrictions for users and services accessing the cloud. Security services are also responsible for preventing unauthorized intrusion or manipulation from the outside or within the cloud. The customer is responsible for environmental compliance and authorization.
