DoD Cloud Computing Strategy

DoD Cloud Computing Strategy

The DoD recently released the department’s formal cloud computing strategy.

In the forward, DoD CIO Teresa Takai said that:

“The DoD Cloud Computing Strategy has been expanded to address use of commercial cloud services in the Department’s multi-provider enterprise cloud environment. Adoption and implementation of commercially provided cloud services are being rapidly accelerated with the maturing of the Federal Cloud Computing initiative, the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP), and release of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act.”

Specific cloud computing transition steps include:

  • Foster adoption of Cloud Computing
  • Optimize Data Center Consolidation
  • Establish the DoD Enterprise Cloud Infrastructure; and
  • Deliver Cloud Services

A subsequent memo identified the Defense Information Systems Agency as the department cloud services broker.
