Amazon seeking to block Microsoft from working on $10B Pentagon cloud contract

Amazon.com Inc. plans to ask a federal court to temporarily stop Microsoft Corp. from working on a Pentagon cloud computing contract worth up to $10 billion, CNN reported, citing a court filing.

Amazon's cloud computing unit will reportedly seek a preliminary injunction to "prevent the issuance of substantive task orders under the contract," and the company will submit a request by Jan. 24.

Microsoft won the contract in October 2019, but Amazon claimed it lost the contract due to political interference by U.S. President Donald Trump. Microsoft is scheduled to begin its work on the contract on Feb. 11, according to the report.

The 10-year cloud contract, called the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure, is designed to consolidate and modernize the Defense Department's infrastructure and technology systems.
