AWS is now on milCloud 2.0

Military services and other defense agencies have a new option to move their workloads and data to Amazon Web Services' cloud. General Dynamics IT announced Monday that it had added AWS as a commercial cloud services provider under the Department of Defense's milCloud 2.0. With AWS now onboard, the partnership increases AWS’s size in the defense market and gives agencies a new option to migrate to the public cloud in the pay-as-you-go milCloud 2.0 system. Prior to this, milCloud 2.0 was largely an on-premise, private cloud offering. Jackson Barnett has the news.
