Military cloud services in the Army: trends and challenges

Cloud infrastructure

Military organisations often depend on their own cloud infrastructure to ensure physical surveillance and control. The lack of geographical spread of data centres operated by service providers was another reason for investing in own infrastructure. Service providers have now invested in building data centres, which has supported the expansion of cloud computing in military forces.

Protection of such infrastructure from cyber-attacks and ensuring military cloud security, however, remains challenging as cyber threats are rising across the sector.
