Wayne Lloyd writes for Nextgov: The Pentagon’s abandonment of the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure, or JEDI, contract was an anticlimactic demise for the once visionary single-cloud network. As far back as 2019, the Defense Department acknowledged that 10% of its cloud would stay with Amazon Web Services and Google; but on paper JEDI’s benefits were clear. It would have been a streamlined, unified approach for DOD’s unclassified and classified networks. Teams would only have to understand and master one solution. And the reduced complexity of a single cloud would theoretically minimize the accessibility of DOD’s network vulnerabilities.
