Well, what did they expect in terms of cost? Thery didn't want to pay for the cost of maintaining hardware and people to maintain it, but they're willing to pay someone else to do it - who, in turn, has to pay for those things. On top of that, the company they pay for that then have to make a profit. BAM! Higher costs.

The DoD is moving to the cloud right now, and preparation has been a big time suck. They pulled people off other (more important) projects who have no business doing this crap, and stuff doesn't get done. We have THREE PEOPLE for our already short-handed group dedicated to moving to the cloud. Even worse, we have to do dev work ON THE CLOUD. This requires us to VPN into a jump box, RDP from the jump box into an intermediate box, and THEN RDP from the intermediate box into our dev environment.

There is NO BENEFIT for us to move to the cloud, in terms of infrastuicture, cost, or process. It's all bullshit.
