In December, Amazon, the leader in the cloud computing industry, filed a lawsuit against the Pentagon, accusing it of giving Microsoft a $10 billion contract for cloud computing services, and asking the Pentagon to suspend the project. In February, a federal judge suspended Microsoft's execution of the cloud computing contract and launched an investigation accordingly. On Tuesday, Amazon said the Pentagon was trying to limit censorship.
Before submitting this document, Judge Patricia Campbell Smith (Patricia Campbell-Smith) recently issued a decision requiring that work on joint enterprise definition infrastructure projects be put on hold until Amazon's allegations of irregularities are reviewed.
the pentagon has sought to suspend interim court procedures, suggesting that it needs more time to reconsider certain aspects of the project, including a review of amazon's alleged unfair price assessment. Some analysts believe the move could include both amazon and microsoft in the deal.
Although the Pentagon and Amazon have publicly announced their positions, Microsoft has kept a low profile and said they believe the Department of defense has made the right decision, including reconsidering its factors. The Pentagon spokesman said the Defense Department believes the contract is based on fairness and justice, and their goal is to provide support to government personnel as soon as possible, subject to compliance with the law and the courts.
