The Air Force isn’t waiting for DoD’s JEDI procurement before it starts moving its applications to commercially-operated cloud environments. DISA’s milCloud 2.0 is among the options its found to be surprisingly attractive.
DISA’s milCloud 2.0 is about to get a wave of new customers, thanks to a Pentagon mandate to move “fourth estate” applications to the new service.
A May 7 memo from the Defense Department’s chief information officers gives “fourth estate” agencies until 2020 to migrate applications from more than 100 data centers.
