DISA Launches OCONUS Cloud Capability at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam

The Defense Information Systems Agency has launched the OCONUS Region for Stratus, a cloud capability available at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii.

The cloud capability works to deliver additional cloud capabilities outside the contiguous United States. It is part of DISA’s initiative to create infrastructure that will connect ground teams stationed around the world and give them access to private and public cloud networks from anywhere, GovCIO Media & Research reported.

Korie Seville, technical director at DISA’s Hosting and Compute Center, said the agency is currently looking for customers at Pearl Harbor-Hickam who want to move data from their centers into the cloud. He is also looking for customers who have offerings in CONUS Stratus regions that want to create an OCONUS offering or synchronize their data with Stratus-supported facilities outside the contiguous U.S.

The OCONUS Region for Stratus establishment comes around eight months after HaCC Director Sharon Woods introduced the Pentagon’s plans to set up a cloud system outside the lower 48. According to Woods, an OCONUS cloud system would deliver connectivity and data tools to military personnel from any location, enabling the Joint All-Domain Command and Control and other initiatives.
