Pentagon’s MilCloud 2.0 Could Host Classified Data by 2019


By Frank Konkel

Fresh off receiving provisional authorization from the Defense Department to host its most sensitive unclassified data, milCloud 2.0 is closing in on another important milestone.

Donald Robinson, General Dynamics Information Technology’s chief technology officer, told reporters Wednesday the company expects its private cloud offering to achieve Impact Level 6 accreditation “towards the end of the year, or early next [calendar year],” which would allow it to begin hosting classified Defense Department workloads.

Currently, only a handful of other cloud service providers have achieved Impact Level 5 authorizations, including IBM, Microsoft and Amazon Web Services. AWS is the only cloud service provider to achieve Impact Level 6 accreditation.
