Pentagon cancels Microsoft's JEDI Contract, now seeking a multi-sourced cloud solution

It was honestly quite dumb to give Microsoft the contract to begin with; they didn’t have the capability to do it. Pretty much the only company who did was Amazon, and not awarding it to them was a blatant political move, not a functional one.

Multi-source contracting will make more sense, it’ll allow agencies to discern which service better matches their workload. That’s better than pretending all Government data has the same requirements.
