Manage DoD Data

Overview

Modernization Efforts Cloud computing plays a critical role in the Department of Defense’s IT modernization efforts. 
It underpins the plan for an interoperable, single cloud-based enterprise IT platform for the entire DoD capable of accommodating all of the Services, other DOD components, and coalition partners. The requirements for this enterprise cloud will be met with multiple private and Commercial cloud service providers (CSPs) that are securely connected to the DoD Information Networks (DODIN).

With the Department's cloud policies, the publication of the DoD Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide, the publication of cloud contracting guidance and the publication of Business Case Analysis guidance, the DoD CIO has established the foundation for the Department to expand its use of commercially-hosted cloud services. DoD actively partners with industry in distributing DoD’s data to the cloud.

The DoD CIO is aggressively focused on removing any remaining barriers to expanding the use of commercially-hosted services. Collaboration with mission, industry, and academic partners is essential to optimize the Department's adoption of commercial cloud services and address any technical challenges that must be overcome.
