DoD doesn’t rule out commercial cloud vendors

When it comes to using the cloud, Defense Department chief information officer Teri Takai says a private cloud will help her department achieve the highest level of security. But she didn’t rule out using commercial cloud services completely.

During a House Armed Services Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities hearing last week, NextGov reports Takai said, “There will be instances where we [can] use commercial cloud providers…[if] they meet our standards.”

According to NextGov, Takai did not specify which types of cloud services DoD would consider purchasing from commercial vendors.
