The U.S. Air Force has migrated its email and mobile services into a cloud computing system run by the Defense Information Systems Agency.

Nearly 7,800 email accounts and 1,300 mobile gadgets across the branch were moved to the cloud within 60 days under the Defense Department‘s Enterprise Email program, DISA said Thursday.

Lt. Gen. Michael Basla, the Air Force’s CIO and chief of information dominance, said the DISA initiative’s goal was to help the service concentrate on core mission tasks.

DEE is designed to support up to 4.5 million users and help Pentagon employees access and share emails, contacts and schedules.
