Microsoft today announced its partnership with Thales Group, a leading international electronics, and systems group that provides services for the aerospace, defense, transportation and security markets to develop cloud solutions for armed forces. The new solution will be based on the Azure Stack, Microsoft’s hybrid cloud platform and the solution will be fully cyber secured and adapted to military resilience constraints by Thales. Since the solution is Azure Stack-based, defense organizations can use it to handle the most sensitive data by hosting at MoDs headquarters or deployed in the field. Further development of this new solution in the future could give them the ability to analyze a large amount of data in real-time for intelligence gathering, to use military IoT applications involving various types of sensors on the field or even to exchange data with mobile applications for augmented soldiers. “We are thrilled to announce our unique partnership with Thales to accelerate digital transformation in the defense sector. Our solution, Microsoft Azure Stack will help armed forces in the analysis of huge volumes of sensitive data in order to make breakthrough developments. Follow this on OUR FORUM.
