Shaun penne...you hit nail on head . he does look like Dr. Evil ....all he needs is to carry a hairless Chihuahua. hahaha! .
white men with money colluding AGAIN . OH LET'S TAKE THESE RICH SHITS DOWN . GET THEIR TAX DOLLARS THAT THEY SHOULD BE PAYING ANYWAY .
Any security officer would drop dead at the thought of placing Sensitive, NO-FORN, TS or TS-SCI info on any public cloud. A self hosted, internal cloud would be a hard sell, but if they did go that route, they wouldn't use AWS, they'd use OpenStack as it is the most robust. Other cloud solutions are pretty tight core to just servers, possibly block storage. Open Stack offers servers, block storage, object storage, DNS, monitoring, databases, load balancers, analytics, backups, imaging, partitioning, and will run on more than just Win-Tel platforms (example, it'll run on Sun, IBM, HP, and other mid range or main frames as well.)
Why give it to any private company? Why use MS windows in the military? Why use systems that have base code available worldwide? Whoever sets up servers like this should be under lock and key like Brent Spiner in independence day.
no he lost his damn mind when he built the "Spheres" in Seattle .. are they supposed to be symbolic of his withered testicles ? im waiting for the homeless people who werent homeless before Bezos and Amazon to break in and take a shit in his koi pond... i will laugh...lol
First of all, the pentagon should know better than anyone that cloud storage is NEVER a good idea for confidential information. Have they never heard of hackers ? What kind of idiots are leading this military.
This whole administration is sponsored by one corporation or another. There are probably plants by other corporations all over it. Bezos is not doing anything different than Verizon, the student loan industry, and oil companies. I’m sick of hearing about the crimes let me know when these crooks start going to jail.
You think we have only one Rump type corruption out there, think again, all these billionaire and millionaires are playing by the books and now with this corrupt administration leading the way, it will get worst.
There are things I don't like about Jeff Bezos, but to give the devil his due: https://www.cnbc.com/2019/02/13/philanthropy-50-how-much-bezos-gates-zuckerberg-charities-gave-away.html
He gave more than Zukerberg and Gates. Not that it excuses illegal actions.
"We can't just let the Sith run everything! They are a group of religious zealots who want to impose their will on everyone else, and that's the Jedi's job! We're the light side! They are the dark side! They believe in love! We forbid it!"
Let's all go old school style like in the 70's & 80's people didn't had no damn Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Amazon, eBay or had a damn credit card when people actually went out and to the store and buy their food clothes and didn't spend stinking third chairs being on social media when people actually talk to people one on one and kids went outside play with their toys me in the 90's all I did was recorded music from a radio to a cassette and went outside play basketball with my friends nowadays is nothing like that everything changed to be honest to sadness
2016 Workforce 100: Ranking the World’s Top Companies for HR.
American Express, which has made the list all three years, takes the top spot in this year’s list of top companies for HR.
To excel at everything from talent management to recruiting to benefits to diversity is not an easy task. To shine in those areas year after year is exemplary. Now in its third year, the Workforce 100 recognizes companies that excel in various areas of human resources during the course of the previous year. To determine which companies make the list, Workforce editors work with researchers from the Human Capital Media Advisory Group, the magazine’s research arm.
To find out which companies are the best for HR management, the research team created a statistical formula to shift through publicly available data on HR performance to separate the best from the rest. This year, to give employees more of a “say,” we’ve asked recruiting and job review website Glassdoor Inc. to provide data on what workers are saying about the companies that made our short list. From there, we combined that information with the public data available to create our 2016 Workforce 100 list.
American Express Inc. was the top company on this year’s list, and it has made the list all three years. Thirty-three other companies have also made all of the lists.
