AWS on JWCC for U.S. Defense

Working with DoD customers to provide mission-critical cloud capabilities securely and reliably

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud. Leading government agencies around the world use AWS to lower costs, become more agile, and innovate faster. The Joint Warfighting Cloud Capability (JWCC) contract enables AWS to continue providing Department of Defense (DoD) customers with secure, reliable, and mission-critical cloud services.

AWS's inclusion in JWCC affords DoD customers a streamlined way to deploy their cloud environments to meet the needs of their mission. Develop your mission-critical workload today and deploy it in the AWS Cloud tomorrow.

How AWS can help your mission

Deploy compute and storage capabilities to the tactical edge

Data-heavy applications relying on low-latency connections are critical for communications and coordination in the field. This data at the tactical edge is essential to mission success, but accessing the cloud in remote environments can pose a challenge. Traditionally, this has meant spending time and resources to establish a traditional data center where none existed before. Now, AWS can get you large-scale workloads where they're needed most without the traditional data center.

Delivering satellite communications to users around the globe

No matter the location, having connectivity in the field is crucial to DoD operations. Satellite systems provide users with critical capabilities from CONUS bases to the front lines. AWS and Amazon’s Project Kuiper will help shape the future of global, ubiquitous, and secure connectivity throughout the space domain for the United States and its allies.
