By Federal News Network , May 16th, 2018
The Pentagon has ordered Defense organizations that operate more than 100 of its data centers to begin migrating their applications to milCloud 2.0, the new on-premises commercial cloud service managed by the Defense Information Systems Agency.
In a May 3 memo, signed by then-DoD Chief Information Officer Essye Miller, the department listed a total of 105 data centers that will be affected by the mandate. Each are operated by DoD “fourth estate” agencies, including the Defense Logistics Agency, the Defense Finance Accounting Service, the Defense Health Agency, DARPA and the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
