Cloud Computing for U.S. Intelligence Community

Cloud computing at mission speed

The most transformative event in tech

Join us in Las Vegas to get real-world training from AWS experts across four public sector focused tracks and a wide range of learning opportunities.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) proudly supports the unique needs of the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) through increased mission impact and improved security.

Using a wide range of secure cloud services and products, AWS can help Intelligence agencies and organizations explore new capabilities and implement emerging technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to improve mission success.

How AWS can help your mission

Drive innovation, security, and mission success

  • Adopting cloud computing is a critical part of ensuring our nation maintains its technological advantage. AWS Cloud provides secure and scalable solutions that drive mission success.
  • We designed the AWS cloud to be the most secure cloud computing environment available. AWS is the first commercial cloud provider to launch a region dedicated to U.S. government workloads that require some of the highest protections.
  • We work hard to adopt a builder’s mindset. From refining our existing products and services to pioneering state-of-the-art developments in AI and ML, AWS helps the U.S. government protect and support the nation.

The new Region adds multiple Availability Zones geographically separated from AWS Top Secret-East. With two Top Secret Regions, customers in the U.S. defense, intelligence, and national security communities can deploy multi-Region architectures to achieve the highest levels of resiliency and availability essential to their most critical national security missions.
