Cloud Computing for U.S. Defense

Securely enabling defense and national security missions with cloud computing

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) provides a global infrastructure and secure, scalable, and mission-focused solutions that helps the DoD meet mission, drive efficiencies, increase innovation, and secure critical workloads.

At AWS, we focus on our customers and what their mission demands, letting that define and guide our efforts. The AWS Cloud is uniquely positioned to provide scalable solutions to DoD customers, whether through tactical edge solutions, DevSecOps, artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML), high performance computing (HPC), or other capabilities. DoD customers can also work with our AWS Partner Network (APN) to build solutions. The APN provides an extensive community of partner companies that offer solutions in areas such as software, developer tools, and consulting expertise to help deploy and manage mission-critical workloads in the AWS Cloud.
 

AWS for your mission

How AWS can help your mission

Rapid and secure mission delivery and cybersecurity

To outpace our adversaries, warfighters need modern software—innovations to meet changes in the environment and that meet shifting battlefield priorities, rapidly and securely. This same software needs to work reliably, even as it modernizes—and without vulnerability to cyberattack. AWS helps you get there with landing zones, infrastructure as code, and DevSecOps architectural guidance.

Evolve Command and Control with the cloud

As the U.S. Military moves to embrace Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2), AWS is uniquely positioned to deliver reliable cloud capability.

We’re supporting mission success for the DoD across the Mission Partner Environment—the framework enabling command and control across the full range of military operations.

AWS is supporting each service’s JADC2 initiative, including recently participating in testing edge computing capabilities for the Air Force’s Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS).
