In this episode of the Azure Government video series, Steve Michelotti talks with Scott Gruenmeier (Cloud Solution Architect, State and Local Government practice, Microsoft) about enabling Central IT to become a cloud broker. Scott starts out with some background on traditional State and Local Government IT and then move into highlighting new cloud based opportunities,
Agencies such as the DoD can improve their threat detection and response times by using cloud-based security capabilities and cloud intelligence through Microsoft Azure Government. By shifting responsibilities to Azure, the DoD can get more security coverage, which enables them to reallocate security resources and budget to other agency priorities.
Defense department senior leaders have directed DoD to adopt cloud computing to support the warfighter, a direction that will help build a stronger foundation of cybersecurity. The partnership with a dedicated, certified cloud provider can be pivotal. But given the breadth of these solutions,
Today, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) is taking significant steps to modernize existing systems, opening the door for the use of emerging technologies to increase speed and agility. Accelerating adoption of cloud technologies is critical to the DoD’s ability to maintain the long-term strategic advantage of US military forces.
We’re excited to announce that NV-Series virtual machines are now generally available in US Gov Virginia. NV-Series is designed to support visualization scenarios which enables customers to use NVIDIA® Tesla® M60 GPUs and NVIDIA® GRID in Azure for desktop accelerated applications and virtual desktops.
Many believe AI will advance government; changing the speed, reliability, and ability for agencies to make more informed decisions and better deliver on their missions. Integral to leveraging the power of AI is data which floods many agencies yet is often underutilized or even locked up due to lack of resources,
The proliferation of data from devices and sensors creates both challenges and opportunities for US armed forces. Today, data comes from both manned and unmanned platforms—ranging from form factors like the sophisticated instrumentation on a modern aircraft to the wearable gear.
Power BI Embedded and BI Premium are now generally available for Microsoft Azure Government, extending existing Power BI capabilities to support U.S. government agencies and their partners in advancing the mission.
The rapid evolution of technology and the exploitation of data, machine intelligence, and on-demand computing power is changing the requirements of cybersecurity. Fortunately, the tools available to the DoD are changing, too.
Since we launched Azure Government in the Cloud Solution Provider Program (CSP) we have been working with Partners across our ecosystem to bring them the great benefits of this channel, enable them to re-sell Azure Government, and help them grow their business while providing the cloud services their customers need.
