Submission + - Amazon Web Services Wins CIA Cloud Contract In Court

cagraham writes: A US Court of Federal Claims Judge has ruled that Amazon Web Services won their $600 Million CIA cloud contract legitimately. When the contract was initially given to AWS over rival IBM's cheaper bid, IBM challenged the decision with the government's General Accounting Office. Despite the increased price, the CIA apparently chose AWS due to their ability to autoscale. The win is a huge victory for AWS, which is seeking to establish itself as a major player for government tech contracts. IBM has announced they will appeal the ruling, although its unlikely to see a reversal.
