National Defense Cloud Strategy


Recently, the U.S. Department of Defense is carrying forward the JEDI project that moves and integrates about 3.4 millions of users, 4 millions of devices to cloud basis on a scale of S 10 billion from 2019 in order to improve data processing and analysis speed with cloud-based military intelligence classification and AI technology. South Korea is also pushing ahead actively policies to promote relevant industries and construct ecosystem such as investing in the smart electronic government service (G-cloud) to efficiently manage IT information resources by establishing the cloud act in 2015. Despite the effort of government, however, it has trouble in initial diffusion for reasons of extant anxiety about cloud such as security issues, burden of initial construction and maintenance expenses, and in addition to this, it is not easy to invigorate due to various regulations and systems of individual laws that hinder the introduction of cloud. Also in national defense field, it continues to make efforts such as preparing guidelines to preferentially examine cloud when introducing, moving and transferring military information systems according to the government policy, performing studies to apply cloud, and carrying out pilot projects, but it seemed the practical application process is not easy due to a lot of limitations such as task characteristics and each military information system operation diversity. Therefore, this study suggests policy directions and strategies to dispel the anxiety of cloud, form a consensus, and spread national defense cloud (D-cloud (tentative name)) with a focus on the defense integrated data center (DIDC).
