As government agencies seek to modernize their services, they face the challenge of safely replacing legacy systems that no longer meet their needs, and learning how to manage new, highly diverse cloud infrastructure at scale. Government organizations have a unique responsibility to maintain a high level of performance for critical services across both cloud-based and hybrid environments. By unifying management, collaboration, and automation of infrastructure from legacy and cloud-based systems in a single pane of glass, Scalr enables government agencies to successfully migrate to the cloud, create simpler yet more reliable collaborate processes, and improve agility and iteration speeds —all while remaining in compliance.
"Scalr is the central and foundational component of our Shift-Up® platform, which provides an end-to-end capability for the automated deployment of containerized IaC with full tool configuration, DoD grade Security, Monitoring, and DevSecOps capabilities."

From mobile Medicare management applications to civic engagement platforms, millions of people access web applications supporting public services every day. This generates massive volumes of traffic that legacy systems oftentimes struggle to accommodate. Scalr helps government organizations ensure that their services can run at any scale by making easy the provisioning and updating of supporting cloud infrastructure. Organizations can provision new cloud services to match growing scale with better architectures, rapidly lay down infrastructure for new projects, and lower the cost of experimentation. Scalr’ comprehensive functionality for collaboration and automation on infrastructure as code enables organizations to rapidly deploy, scale, and improve IT infrastructure. Ultimately, Scalr ensures that cloud infrastructure is kept secure, compliant, cost effective, and agile regardless of scale or lifecycle stage.
Fed/SLED programs often consist of many engineers that need to come together and collaborate effectively to ensure community-facing services across the country perform at the highest level. Scalr’s platform enables seamless cross-team communication through integrations with various messaging platforms like Office 365 Groups and collaborative features like Notebooks. Scalr’s collaboration-friendly interface allows government groups and organizations to deploy and manage infrastructure efficiently with the ability to synchronize quickly to resolve issues in real time. Whether you're a small team or a fleet of multiple divisions composed of tens of thousands of engineers, you can collaborate while jointly working off the same infrastructure code, approval gates, and run activity streams.
Government organizations often aggregate and manage hundreds of discrete properties and span multiple IT systems and departments that require various permissions and access levels that can be challenging to manage. Scalr addresses this issue with a multi-tenant solution designed to scale along with these organizations’ custom needs. Users can centrally manage the properties of multiple organizations from a single account, while ensuring that each organization's infrastructure remains separate and distinct.
As government organizations modernize aging legacy systems and adopt cloud-based infrastructure, they are required to comply with strict regulations that help keep user data safe and secure. Scalr has successfully completed the SOC 2 audit, and implements a variety of security measures to protect user data. These measures include encrypting data with Transport Layer Security (TLS) and HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), and infrastructure monitoring for potentially malicious events like API calls and login attempts. Scalr is also ready to comply with FedRAMP's Moderate-Impact security standards, empowering government agencies and federal systems integrators to accelerate their journey to the cloud.
