Distributed Hybrid Multi Cloud (DHMC) solicitation seeks to support the transformation of DISA’s data centers into hybrid cloud centers

Sept. 12, 2023

DISA’s Hosting and Compute Center (HaCC) released the Distributed Hybrid Multi Cloud (DHMC) solicitation. This Other Transaction Authority (OTA) solicitation seeks to support the HaCC’s internal initiative to modernize and transform DISA’s data centers into hybrid cloud centers. DHMC is not a product and will not be a service offering customers can purchase separately; rather, the DHMC OTA seeks to enhance our current architecture and develop a prototype capability that complements the HaCC’s current cloud offerings, including Stratus and the Joint Warfighting Cloud Capability (JWCC), by enabling the delivery of hybrid
cloud solutions.


The HaCC currently has multiple x86 hosting environments that are isolated and independent from each other. Each hosting environment contains different management planes and different processes. The contract awarded from the DHMC OTA solicitation will modernize our server infrastructure and create a central management control plane prototype to complement current, and future, cloud offerings. 

As both a consumer and provider of cloud, the HaCC is modernizing DISA’s data centers, connectivity, and communications platform to drive warfighter readiness through innovation.  The HaCC’s initiative to transform data centers into hybrid cloud centers will help us deliver better, faster, and more resilient cloud solutions, resulting in a strategic advantage for the warfighter now, and on future battlefields.

We encourage industry partners to review the DHMC solicitation posted here: https://sam.gov/opp/2daa14f630d3401c8bd4383e527e8e9b/view.
