  • The Army's cloud computing effort has passed a milestone.

    It said more than a half-million employees are now using the Defense Department's enterprise email system. The Army chief information officer said it was well on its way to completely migrating to the cloud-based email by March.

    The road has not been easy. The Army suspended the project for three months earlier this year while officials worked to satisfy Congress' concerns over spending and project management. Officials said moving to the cloud is saving money and making cybersecurity easier. (Army)
