Cameron Chehreh, chief technology officer of Dell EMC‘s federal business, told SDxCentral in an interview published Thursday the company can help offer a complete technology platform to support the business transformation phase of the U.S. Air Force‘s cloud migration project.

The Air Force awarded the team of Dell EMC, Microsoft and General Dynamics a potential five-year, $1 billion contract to transition the service branch’s information technology and communications systems to a cloud infrastructure.

Chehreh said all three companies aim to migrate 5,000 to 7,000 users per week through the Cloud Hosted Enterprise Services program, a follow-on to the Collaboration Pathfinder program in which the same industry team helped the Air Force build a cloud email platform.

He added the contract covers the provision of Microsoft’s Office 365 suite and some Azure-based tools.

Dell EMC also seeks to offer hybrid cloud offerings to the Air Force through the Azure Stack platform, according to Chehreh.
