GDIT’s Jeffrey Phelan Highlights MilCloud 2.0’s as Cloud Service Solution for DOD

The Department of Defense and its mission partners can rely on the milCloud 2.0 platform to address their cloud service needs for mission-critical activities, according to an official from General Dynamics Information Technology.

Jeffrey Phelan, milCloud 2.0 and DOD cloud services portfolio lead for GDIT, said the platform was specifically designed to support acquisitions, security and budgetary efforts, FedScoop reported Tuesday

He said milCloud 2.0 offers all the tools the military needs related to IT. “Effectively, we’re providing a one-stop-shop for users, and they can literally be up and running in 48 hours," Phelan said during a podcast produced by FedScoop.

Phelan cited offerings such as cloud consulting, engineering services, migration services, cloud infrastructure, managed hosting services, dedicated infrastructure, specialized engineering platforms and high-performance GPUs. 

He added that milCloud 2.0 sports features that make it compatible with DOD's legacy systems, including engineering offerings like Oracle Exadata and SPARC. 

“Typically, buying cloud infrastructure isn’t necessarily the hard thing. It’s getting all of the other wraparound services and having to put other vehicles and other subcontracts together to really make cloud infrastructure work,” Phelan said. 

MilCloud 2.0 also brings to its users all the authorizations and accreditations it has achieved, reducing costs and saving months of work otherwise needed to secure operation rights, Phelan added. 

Phelan is an IT veteran who leverages over two decades of leadership experience in the sector. He has been leading the milCloud project since 2018. 

He is also credited with expanding the project with the DOD and the Defense Information Systems Agency.  

GDIT is an IT service management company headquartered in Falls Church, Virginia, that addresses the complex needs of customers from the government, defense and intelligence sectors.
