DISA Computing Services

For More Information

DISA provides computer processing for the entire gamut of combat support functions, including transportation, logistics, maintenance, munitions, engineering, acquisition, finance, medicine and military personnel readiness. With more than 800,000 users, DISA operates over 1,400 applications in 15 geographically separate facilities utilizing more than 55 mainframes and 1,350 servers. Supported applications provide command and control of warfighting forces, facilitate mobility of the warfighter through maintenance of the airlifter and tanker fleets, provide warfighter sustainment through resupply and reorder, and manage the medical environment and patient care. The rapid evolution of data processing and communication technologies has created a new computing paradigm for DISA. This paradigm is driven by both rapid technology advances presented by the commercial market and the absolute need to ensure “best value” solutions for the military essentiality inherent in support of the warfighter. DISA’s computing services are based on the following key principles:

  • Requisite computing services will always be available to the warfighter to deploy, employ and sustain the force
  • Computing capability will always be reliable, scalable, secure and interoperable
  • Computing costs will be the lowest possible, commensurate with meeting customer requirements for constant availability with best-value solutions

DISA’s computing facilities feature diverse locations, a defense-in-depth philosophy and dual high-capacity Defense Information System Network (DISN) connectivity; they also utilize automated systems management to control computing resources and gain economies of scale. DISA has adopted an assured computing philosophy and implemented initiatives to ensure information and mission critical applications are continuously available to customers. Such initiatives include facilities upgrades, improved equipment availability, diverse and redundant communications, improved software availability and measures to remotely replicate data. Assured computing, coupled with the ability to rapidly increase processing and storage capacity via utility contracts, enables DISA to provide the availability and surge capabilities that customers require. DISA offers computer processing services on both DISA-owned and customer-owned platforms. Services include computer operations, data storage, systems administration, security management, capacity management, system engineering, web and portal hosting, architectural development and performance monitoring.

Services are provided by a highly skilled work force and performed in state-of-the-art computing facilities strategically located throughout the continental United States. DISA facilities are operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, and support both unclassified and classified computing environments. Services are available to Department of Defense services, agencies and combatant commanders.
