Amazon Launches a Cloud Service for US Intelligence Agencies
This morning, Amazon Web Services introduced cloud service for the CIA and other members of the U.S. intelligence community.
Amazon is actually proud of this.
"With the launch of this new Secret Region, AWS becomes the first and only commercial cloud provider to offer regions to serve government workloads across the full range of data classifications, including Unclassified, Sensitive, Secret, and Top Secret," Amazon said in a blog post.
“The AWS Secret Region is a key component of the Intel Community’s multi-fabric cloud strategy. It will have the same material impact on the IC at the Secret level that C2S has had at Top Secret,” said John Edwards, CIO, Central Intelligence Agency.
Bezos is a very mixed bag. He is great on the consumer side but a total Big Brother government friendly creep at the same time.
