The U.S. Marine Corps is set to move its enterprise logistics system from the Defense Information Systems Agency‘s platform to a private cloud provider, Nextgov reported Wednesday.
Bob Brewin writes the Marine Corps Systems Command sent a request for information on Feb. 4 regarding its plan to move its Global Combat Support System from DISA’s Enterprise Computing Center in Pennsylvania to a commercial host.
GCSS-MC, which currently runs on Oracle E-Business Suite, supports several operations capabilities for 30,000 end users.
Brewin reports the Marines want the private cloud service provider to manage networks, operating systems and other computing resources.
The Marines have also launched a three-year IT systems contract in pursuit of a single systems integrator to oversee 15 manpower systems.
Responses for that contract are due by March 4.
