This study investigates the suitability of the cloud computing approach for addressing the DoD enterprise and operational computing needs. Over the past few years, DoD has transitioned some of its computing needs to cloud computing data centers. The main factors driving this transition include enhanced mission capabilities, potential reduction in data center costs, and potential improvement in cyber security. This study has investigated these factors in detail and has analyzed the characteristics that should be considered when DoD contemplates moving applications onto cloud computing data centers. The study also investigated ways for the DoD to manage the cyber security risks and benefits associated with cloud computing.
