Cloud Players Vie for Pentagon Contract


The Pentagon wants to make their data more accessible to their divisions no matter the location and began looking for a trusted Cloud Provider. They put out a bid for their Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI.) The three big players were Google, Amazon, and Microsoft were all in the hunt for the 10 billion dollar project. The Pentagon decided to go with Microsoft, but the decision is not sitting well with Amazon, the favorite, saying they will choose within ten days if they will challenge the awarding of this contract.
