Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) appeals to many Federal IT organizations, for the ease of management, security, data loss prevention, and more recently to enable secure client mobility. Client mobility allows a user to create a file at their desk, leave for another location and still be able to edit that same file from a secure laptop without ever having physical possession of the file or transporting it. As Federal productivity requirements continue to push access to the “edge” of the network, expanded access to files and applications needs to be securely enabled for the mobile client.
M2 Technology’s expertise helps you step into this new level of virtualization. Several proven methodologies exist (cloud, on-premise or hybrid) offering more than one platform and more than one way to implement. M2 Technology supports your agency’s need to identify the best fit for the mission needs. Along with our industry partners we offer the leading cloud and on-site alternatives to achieve your ideal VDI environment. We can move you from concept to reality.

Your agency’s computer network is your most critical infrastructure - keeping users connected and communicating to applications and services is essential to meet your agency’s mission. Hyper-converged infrastructure, VDI, hybrid-cloud, big data and analytics have different requirements than traditional client-server data center network architecture. M2 Technology’s technical team brings best practices coupled with the latest technology to help design and implement networks to meet your requirements today and in the future.
M2 Technology offers industry leading solutions for high performance networks, secure wireless networks, WAN optimization, software defined networking, and network security and management.
The Federal Government’s Cloud First Policy requires agencies to “evaluate safe, secure cloud computing options before making any new investments.” M2 Technology can help your agency evaluate if a multi-cloud, public cloud, hybrid cloud, or private cloud meets your requirements for budget and security.
Public cloud service providers use different pricing models with lengthy commitments required for their best pricing. A mix of long term, low cost servers and short term, higher cost servers may be required to take advantage of rapid agility in a public cloud. M2 Technology can help customers determine which public clouds are most cost effective for their specific workloads – a compute intensive application may be best suited for a different cloud than an I/O intensive application.
XaaS can also be deployed on-premise for SaaS, PaaS, CaaS and IaaS offerings, potentially at comparable or better pricing than commercial or Federal agency public clouds. M2 Technology’s sales and technical teams will work with your agency to explore these options.
Cybersecurity is more than Information Assurance (IA); resiliency is a critical aspect of IA. M2 delivers customer solutions that address ALL aspects of cybersecurity by leveraging our best of breed IA portfolio, our industry leading data center and enterprise infrastructure offerings, and proven enterprise management software tools.
Coordinated cyber defense and resiliency at machine speeds is a goal for many Federal agencies. This requires perimeter and data security, automated service discovery, root cause analytics for both security and operations, and automated mitigation and remediation. M2’s technical team works closely with our customers to determine the appropriate solution for each of these areas to meet their budget and security requirements.
Larger and larger datasets from a wider range of sources provides Federal agencies the possibility of increased efficiency, cost savings, and new capabilities. M2 Technology offers complete technology stacks required to collect, analyze, visualize, and report on big data.
