Eric Shander, an executive vice president and chief financial officer of Red Hat, has said the company is in talks with Defense Department officials regarding the company’s back-end cloud software and service offerings, News Observer reported Tuesday.

DoD reportedly intends to award a $10 billion Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure contract that may potentially go to a major cloud service provider such as Microsoft, IBM or Amazon.

Shander told News Observer that Red Hat has a software platform designed to work with the services of these firms.

He added that the DoD could select a contractor for JEDI back-end services shortly after the department names its primary cloud provider.

DoD announced solicitation plans for JEDI earlier this year, describing it as an enterprise cloud platform that will work to manage data at unclassified, secret and top secret levels.
