Dulles, Va. – May 21, 2014 – Carpathia, a trusted cloud operator and leading provider of compliant cloud services and managed hosting, announced that the Duke Human Vaccine Institute (DHVI), a leader in the fight against major infectious diseases, has selected Carpathia to design, deploy, manage and back-up the expansion of its Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) compliant computing infrastructure.

For over two decades, the DHVI has been at the forefront of the battle against AIDS and the quest for HIV and other infectious disease vaccines. As part of its research mission, DHVI directs and manages External Quality Assurance (EQA) programs through its Immunology and Virology Quality Assessment Center (IVQAC). This center supports the development, implementation and oversight of external quality assurance programs that monitor laboratories involved in HIV/AIDS research and vaccine trials around the world. In addition, the center helps domestic and international immunologists evaluate and enhance the integrity and comparability of immunological laboratory determinations performed on patients enrolled in therapeutic, vaccine and prevention investigations. In order to support these efforts, DHVI needs to continue to comply with strict NIST, HIPAA and FISMA data protection and integrity standards.

Our IT mission is to support the External Quality Assurance program’s information integrity and security so that the research efforts, effectiveness and productivity of our investigators are maximized,” said Paul Debien, Director, Information Services, DHVI. “Carpathia, in offering a custom infrastructure, supported by their premier secure data center, plays an integral role in ensuring we adhere to the stringent security and compliance requirements essential for our work.”

Carpathia’s team of experts and engineers worked closely with DHVI to evaluate application, user and security needs and then architect a custom solution designed to meet the NIST and HIPAA compliance requirements required to support the EQA programs. In addition to providing managed services, the DHVI infrastructure is supported by the Carpathia IBX Vault, one of the industry’s most advanced data centers built from the ground up to meet a superset of federal compliance and security mandates.

A healthy computing infrastructure isn’t possible until certain security and compliance standards have been met,” said Stu Fleagle, Vice President Carpathia Government Solutions. “For an organization like DHVI, which faces strict requirements and unique challenges, our extensive experience and ability to draw up a custom plan are just what the doctor ordered.”
