AWS announces AWS Modular Data Center (MDC) for U.S. Department of Defense customers
Today, AWS announces the availability of AWS Modular Data Center (MDC) to the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). AWS MDC makes it easy for DoD agencies to deploy modular data centers managed by AWS in infrastructure-limited locations. AWS MDC is available as a self-contained modular data center unit: an environmentally controlled physical enclosure that can host racks of AWS Outposts or AWS Snow Family devices. AWS MDC can scale further through the deployment of additional units. Customers can proactively monitor and manage their modular data centers using the management system available with every unit. Customers also have the option to use satellite communications for network connectivity.
