Microsoft, AWS tools up for brand spanking new Pentagon Cloud contract value $10 bn
Pentagon needed to cancel the $10 billion JEDI contract that was once given to Microsoft in 2019
Washington: After witnessing a sour warfare over the $10 billion JEDI (Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure) Cloud computing contract, the Pentagon has introduced a brand new cloud initiative that replaces the ill-fated JEDI contract.
Pentagon needed to cancel the $10 billion JEDI contract that was once given to Microsoft in 2019, leaving the favorite Amazon out of the race right through the Donald Trump management.
Now, all Cloud giants like Amazon, Microsoft, Google and Oracle were invited to bid for the “Joint Warfighting Cloud Capability” (JWCC) Cloud contract.
“The government anticipates awarding two contracts — one to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and one to Microsoft Corporation (Microsoft) — but intends to award to all Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) that demonstrate the capability to meet DoD’s requirements,” the Pentagon stated in a remark.
The JEDI contract was once intended to modernise the Pentagon’s IT operations for services and products rendered over 10 years. After Microsoft was once awarded the decade-long contract in October 2019, AWS had filed a bid protest immediately to DoD, difficult the verdict.
Microsoft had stated that it received the JEDI contract as a result of the USA Department of Defense discovered that it introduced “significantly superior” era at a greater worth.
Amazon believed that the re-assessment procedure was once extremely fallacious, and topic to undue drive from the previous US President Trump.
Not most effective JEDI, Microsoft and Amazon had additionally locked horns over any other $10 billion contract via the USA National Security Agency (NSA) received via AWS.
