NSA moves its data to the “Intelligence Community GovCloud”

As part of a multi-year transition into a “big data fusion environment,” the NSA has successfully moved most of its data into the classified cloud computing system the “Intelligence Community GovCloud.” This new system allows analysts to access intel across sources, as well as employ machine learning and algorithms. The NSA’s CIO sid that the “backbone of the system is the same commercial hardware you might see in data centers owned by Facebook, Amazon or other industry titans,”  but that the “hardware is blended with NSA-developed custom software, exotic processing, high performance computing and other unique NSA intellectual property.”
