FAA to move to cloud for email, collaboration

The Federal Aviation Administration has signed a deal to move 60,000 of its employees to the cloud. The contract will also support 20,000 workers at the Department of Transportation. The seven-year, $91 million agreement will migrate the FAA to a cloud system using Microsoft's Office 365 software as a service suite for email, collaboration, calendaring and other online productivity apps. For its implementation, FAA settled on a private cloud model. The Agriculture Department began moving its employees to the same Microsoft platform last year.
