Defense Information Systems Agency Seeks Multi-Cloud Controller Prototype

The Defense Information Systems Agency Hosting and Compute Center is looking to secure a prototype of a single interface for controlling multiple cloud environments. DISA plans to issue an other transaction authority agreement for the prototype, which it expects to be complete within a year.

The agency wants the system to automate asset management and compliance processes, employ a zero trust architecture and utilize artificial intelligence and machine learning.

The final product is meant to support Department of Defense customers that oversee a mix of traditional virtualized, dedicated host, on-premise and commercial cloud assets as the Joint Warfighting Cloud Capability effort gets underway.

JWCC is a $9 billion contract meant to serve as the DOD’s means of acquiring cloud solutions compliant up to the top-secret security classification level. HACC Director Sharon Woods shared earlier in March that vendors would be able to compete for task orders at the top-secret level by the summer of 2023.

DISA recently posted a request for information to obtain feedback from vendors on their ability to deliver technical requirements for the prototype. Responses are due on April 22, FCW reported Wednesday.
