The US Navy has awarded a five-year enterprise software license contract worth $723.9 million to Amazon Web Services (AWS).
The deal will give the Navy access to AWS' commercial cloud environment, Professional Services, and training and certification courses.
The Pentagon recently awarded cloud computing contracts worth $9 billion to AWS, Google, Microsoft, and Oracle as part of the Joint Warfighting Cloud Capability contract.
The work for the contract will be performed for a maximum of five years, starting in December 2020 and ending in 2028.
The contract is part of the Pentagon's efforts to modernize its technology and improve its cloud computing capabilities.
The contract was awarded to AWS after a competitive bidding process.
AWS is one of the leading cloud computing providers in the world and has a strong track record in providing cloud services to government agencies.
The contract will help the Navy to improve its technology infrastructure and increase its efficiency.
