DISA Chief Technologist States Plan for Cloud

In an interview reported on in this month’s Military Information Technology magazine, David Mihelcic, DISA Chief Technology Officer, has laid out his goal for the agency’s cloud computing initiative. As CTO, he serves as the agency’s senior authority on scientific, technical and engineering matters. Mr. Mehelcic wants the DISA cloud to be able to “enter a piece of software into a cloud, and have that automatically provisioned on servers globally, close to the customers who need the service”. DISA’s CTO clearly wants to move well beyond the current RACE infrastructure. In the interview, he states that the current stretch goal for provisioning computing capacity is 24 minutes. I say keep pushing. It’s good to see that DISA plans to expand their cloud computing activities. What other goals do you think DISA should lay out for itself?
