Israel’s defense forces took a new step into the cloud with the signing of an agreement between the Israeli Ministry of Defense and VMware, according to a report at IsraelDefense.com.
Under the contract, Israel will use the company’s vCloud Suite Enterprise, which allows rapid virtualization of servers and other data center components. The Ministry of Defense already uses VMware’s vSphere technology for all of its major server farms. The new agreement allows the “technological unification of all IDF units,” the website reported.
The contract spans three years, with a two-year option.
