TheÂ U.S. Transportation CommandÂ will now start the migration of data and applications to an Amazon Web Services-built cloud platform designed to host intelligence community clientsâ workloads classified at the âsecretâ level, Nextgov reported Tuesday.
Trancomâs decision to move data to the AWS Secret Region came after Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) decided to retract its bid protestÂ March 8.
Microsoft told Nextgov it made the decision since the issues were addressed to the companyâs satisfaction.
The command announced its plan in December to award AWS a contract in order to facilitate the transition of data to the companyâs cloud platform.
Transcomâs announcement came a month after the company launched the AWS Secret Region that can be accessed by IC agencies through the Commercial Cloud ServicesÂ contract.
