    Have you been following the JEDI project? The $10 billion project has been full of controversy; however, the Pentagon still hopes to seal the deal with either Amazon or Microsoft next month.

    A federal court ruling on Friday cleared the path for Amazon and Microsoft to battle for a massive contract to build the Department of Defense’s first-ever “war cloud” computing system.

    Oracle, which had originally bid on the $10 billion contract, was eliminated from contention by the Pentagon after officials said only Amazon and Microsoft had the capacity to carry out the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure plan, known as JEDI. The company went on to accuse the military of giving unfair preference to Amazon through arbitrary requirements for the contract and conflicts of interest involving former department employees, the Federal News Network reported.
