Pretty big deal using Cloud infrastructure for defense. Microsoft will make a huge amount of money with this, big loss for Amazon. Wonder if this will bring AI uses closer to the military?

Amazon having competition is good. And loosing to it once in a while is better. If they don't look inward to improve, they've already fallen behind. Blaming a possible Trump interference is sad and weak.

I wonder if the contract covers private use servers. Will officials have to cover the expense out of pocket, or can they use tax dollars to email sensitive documents from home?

From 8" floppies to "the cloud" in one move. What could go wrong?
