Global Content Delivery Service
The Defense Information Systems Agency's Global Content Delivery Service (GCDS) has introduced a cost structure for fiscal year 2012 that features a one-time fee with no recurring monthly costs. Using the GCDS saves costs, improves efficiency and offers sustainability. Rather than building and maintaining a distributed infrastructure of their own, users can take advantage of this fully operational, distributed and scalable service to lower overall operating costs and improve end-user performance. The agency recently redesigned a website that enhances GCDS solutions browsing, features a high-level description of each solution and includes simplified cost structure information.
