Why Yyotta?

Welcome to Yyotta (pronounced 'why yotta') sourced from the word yottabyte. A yottabyte (YB), according to the U.S. Department of Commerce, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), is defined as the largest unit of measurement used to quantify bandwidth capacity. In orders of magnitude, one YB = 10 to the 24th power or one trillion terra-bytes. A big number.

We as a country are at the dawn of monumental change in a new global economy. Since 1955, the Fortune 500 list has changed by 89%. The Fortune 500 is fast becoming the Digital 500. In July of 2015, six companies on the Fortune 500 accounted for 53% of NASDAQ’s $664 Billion market value (Amazon, Google, Apple, Facebook, Netflix and Gilead).

Yyotta LLC was formed in May of 2013 to respond to this adapting and changing profile of American businesses by enabling secure access and relevant connectivity to Internet service platforms in strategic locations where Government, Academia, and Industry users and customers gravitate to collaborate.

Yyotta is installing new compliant connectivity, leveraging existing relevant IT infrastructure and assembling appropriate IT laboratories for the managed hosting of research and development platforms. Yyotta is partnering with Federal, State, and local governments; with community colleges and national public and private universities; and, with global commercial enterprises to foster collaboration in the cyber security education, training and readiness market.

Yyotta is shaping and mapping the eco-systems of educating and training the cyber workforce to ensure the readiness and professionalism of our county’s most valuable resources, its people and its economy. The initial nexus has evolved and Yyotta is investing in its most strategic, prototypical facilities in vicinity of Marine Corps Base Quantico (MCBQ).

MCBQ is headquarters and is the crossroads of the US Marine Corps (USMC). Quantico supports global Marine Corps education, training and readiness. It also is home to global education, training and readiness for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and Military Department Investigative Agencies (MDIA) for the Department of Defense (DoD).

  • Yyotta's partner, Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA), opened its new Regional Center for Workforce Education and Training (RCWET) in March of 2016, which is located on Interstate 95 equidistant to MCBQ and US Army Fort Belvoir, current home of the US Army Cyber Command.
  • USMC partner, the Commonwealth of Virginia, Virginia’s Governor recently announced his Virginia Global Cyber Security Initiative at the RCWET. Governor McAuliffe also announced the 2015 Department of Homeland Security/National Security Agency co-designation of the University of Virginia, George Mason University (GMU), James Madison University, and Virginia Tech as Academic Centers of Excellence providing undergraduate and graduate degree programs in Cyber Security and Information Assurance (IA).
  • Yyotta's partner, Quantico Business Center LLC, owns the Quantico Corporate Center at Stafford (QCCS), where Stafford County Government is developing the Stafford Research and Technology Park. GMU, ManTech International Corporation (ManTech) and Yyotta are stakeholders in the County project. Yyotta partner, ManTech is operating the DoD Cyber IA Testing and Training Range in QCCS.
