AWS GovCloud (US) provides government customers and their partners with the flexibility to architect secure cloud solutions that comply with the FedRAMP High baseline; the Department of Justice's Criminal Justice Information Systems (CJIS) Security Policy; the United States International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR); the Export Administration Regulations (EAR); the Department of Defense (DoD) Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide (SRG) for Impact Levels 2, 4, and 5; FIPS 140-2; IRS-1075; and other compliance standards.

Why Use GovCloud?


  • Compliance

Customers can use AWS GovCloud (US) to meet ITAR, FedRAMP, DFARS, DoD (SRG) Impact Levels 2-5, and other security and compliance requirements.

  • Protect private data

Secure unclassified data files on Amazon S3 with server-side encryption. Use AWS CloudHSM to manage security keys or our one-click AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS).

  • Reinforce id management

With identity federation, quick key rotation, and other robust access control testing tools, you can restrict access to critical data by individual, time, and location.

  • Make clouds visible

Audit sensitive data access and use with AWS CloudTrail, our US-based API logging solution.

  • Account and workload security

Amazon GuardDuty continuously monitors your AWS accounts and workloads. Unusual API calls or potentially unauthorised deployments are examples of harmful or unauthorised conduct that Amazon GuardDuty looks for.



Manage Mission-Critical Tasks

  • Applications for businesses of all sizes

Reliability is crucial for enterprise software such as Oracle, SAP, and Microsoft Windows, among others. Organizations have typically built applications for peak demand and disaster recovery (DR) scenarios, which results in IT resources being idle or underutilized for a significant portion of the time. With AWS, you can increase reliability by using cloud backups, and you can save expenses by only paying for the cloud services that you really use.

  • Computing at a high level of performance

In many cases, enormous data sets containing vital insights are being amassed by government entities. When you utilize AWS, you can create enormous on-demand clusters of compute resources in minutes, pay only for the compute power that is really used, and receive the intelligence you need to serve your purpose and the residents of the world.

  • Big data

Amazon cloud computing services provides you with quick access to flexible and low-cost IT resources, allowing you to rapidly scale virtually any big data application, such as data warehousing, clickstream analytics, fraud detection, recommendation engines, event-driven ETL, serverless computing, and Internet of Things (IoT) computing. Set up exactly the type and amount of resources that you will require for your big data analytics apps.

  • Disaster recovery and storage

At any moment, you can increase your scalable capacity, and you can access durable and cost-effective cloud storage that is managed by people from the United States, all while maintaining compliance with your data security needs. Backup, storage, and recovery of IT systems may be accomplished in seconds by supporting common disaster recovery methodologies ranging from simple backups to hot standby solutions that can failover at a moment’s notice, among others.
