JEDI Masters and what it means for mpro5 clients

Our partner, Microsoft, has won the contract to provide the US Government with US$10bn of Cloud Services. The good people at cloudpro.co.uk reported that Microsoft had beaten off competition from all of the big players in cloud.

“The contract, known as the Joint Enterprise Defence Infrastructure (JEDI), pitted some of the world’s biggest tech companies against each other with the ultimate prize being to upgrade the US defence department’s IT systems.

As winners of the contract, Microsoft will provide AI-based analysis and store classified military information, as well as a host of other computer services. A big reason for the project is to give the military better access to data and the cloud from battlefields, which also proved to be to big a concern.”

Now, how does this relate to mpro5? Well, we have been pioneers of the Microsoft Cloud, switching to Azure before people knew it was anything other than a shade of blue. When we first tried Azure, there was no data center in Europe save for Ireland and The Netherlands. We perceived the main benefits were:-

Uptime
Backup
Mirroring
Value

Service
Adaptability
Global footprint

Recognize any of those benefits with mpro5 ? I do and I personally believe that Microsoft are seriously underestimated as a driver of innovation. Crimson Tide tries to match their ambition. Congratulations to our partner.
