John Hale, chief of cloud services at DISA, details how MilCloud 2.0 fits into the Pentagon cloud strategy, and the portfolio’s 2019 milestones.  


According to the Defense Department’s cloud strategy, the Pentagon will use multiple clouds across their enterprise. The Defense Information Systems agency is working on a new cloud portfolio that’s in line with the new strategy. John Hale, chief of cloud services at DISA, told Government Matters that multiple kinds of cloud solutions are integrated within MilCloud 2.0.   “If it is x86-based, if it’s a standard virtual machine solution, it should go into a general purpose cloud computing environment. If it is something that requires a hybrid environment, so something that still relies on a legacy application or legacy appliance, that where it is a better fit for a fit for purpose cloud solution. Or, if the data is sensitive enough that we need to make sure it stays within the DoD’s boundaries,” Hale said.   Hale said that the conversation around cloud computing has changed at the Department of Defense, to a more mission-oriented stance.   “Years ago, when we talked about cloud computing it was about cost. Now when we talk about cloud computing, it is about freeing up resources to mission partners,” Hale said. “I think going forward, what we are really looking for cloud computing to do is to buy back some of our resources that we have dedicated towards IT infrastructure, and really apply those resources towards mission.”
