The Department of Veterans Affairs has scaled its telehealth visits by a factor of 10 since the beginning of the pandemic. Telehealth is only one application of more than 100 that live in the cloud for the agency.

  • David Catanoso, Director of the Enterprise Cloud Solutions Office at the VA, said the VA’s enterprise cloud consists of two primary environments: Microsoft Azure Government and AWS GovCloud, with several layers of third-party tooling on top of that to maximize the security of veteran data and ensure teams can move quickly to the cloud.
  • Catanoso said his office validates applications with a variety of techniques to determine which ones to securely migrate to the cloud; sometimes application teams come to them, and other times they identify apps that should move to the cloud to benefit from capabilities like auto-scaling, higher reliability and disaster recovery.
  • Catanoso said the VA will always have a mix of data centers and cloud technology given the size of their infrastructure, and they have approximately 1,000 applications in their inventory currently and are tracking to move about 350 more by 2024.
