DOD moves one millionth user into cloud email system

Posted on March 14, 2013

The Defense Department has now put its one million user into its enterprise email system, with the vast majority of users from the Army, according to Federal News Radio.

About 967,000 out of the 1 million users so far work for the Army. The Air Force may be next as that service consolidates and streamlines its broader IT network architecture under a construct it’s calling AFNET. The Navy is trying out the service in a pilot phase through its Navy Recruiting Command. The Army estimates the move to the cloud will save it around $70 million per year.
