Microsoft has once again challenged the decision of Amazon Web Services (AWS), an enterprise run by Satya Nadella, to openly influence the ecommerce giant against Amazon’s cloud arm – this time from the public and directly from the US Department of Defense (DOD).
AWS directly protested the Defense Department’s bid to challenge the “challenging elements” of the Pentagon’s revised request for a joint venture defense infrastructure (JDI) contract awarded to Microsoft in October last year.
In mid-April, the latest challenge from Defense Department Inspector General AWS was that the success of Microsoft’s ambitious JDI contract was unaffected by US President Donald Trump, as Amazon alleged, and was completely legal.
In a statement, Frank Xshaw, corporate vice president, said that this latest line of communications at Microsoft is disappointing but not surprising.
Shah asserted, “We received notice on Tuesday that Amazon has once again filed a protest over its lost bid for the JDI Cloud contract.
He told AWS that Amazon’s new complaint would force American fighters to wait longer for 21st-century technology – “to keep the record of Amazon’s self-defense going forward.”
Shah said the latest filing with Dad was another example of Amazon trying to narrow down the JDI in an attempt to resolve complaints, litigation and other failures.
