It’s not Fort Knox, but the Treasury Department will move its main public website and four of its agency websites to the cloud.
According to a report on InformationWeek, it is the first cabinet-level agency to use Amazon’s cloud services.
Along with the main site, the others include: SIGTARP.gov, MyMoney.gov, TIGTA.gov, and IRSOversightBoard.treasury.gov.
Smartronix also helped to move Recovery.gov, the website providing information on the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, to Amazon’s cloud last year, according to InformationWeek.
In December, federal Chief Information Officer Vivek Kundra explained the federal government’s 25-point federal IT management and acquisition reform.
One of the most high-profile provisions mandated agencies to adopt a “cloud-first” policy.
