After much groundwork, the Army says it has begun migrating individual e-mail accounts to the cloud. The first 2,000 users will be moved to the new system as a testbed. If all goes well the Army wants to move 200,000 classified and 1.4 million unclassified accounts by the end of the year. DefenseSystems reports the Army expects the service to save about $100 million a year by 2013.
