While the larger Department of Defense works to acquire an end-to-end, enterprise cloud, the Air Force seems to be doing just fine on its own. The service describes its Cloud One as “the leading provider for state-of-the-art cloud computing platforms, technologies, approaches, and solutions.” And it’s not just available to the Air Force but across the DOD, giving other services access to host systems, environments and applications in the cloud across a variety of providers. “The Cloud One Program Office delivers and sustains war-winning IT capabilities to the DoD through the provisioning of common secure computing environments, standardized platforms, system migration and support services, and data management,” reads the program’s website overview.
