The Rapid Access Computing Environment (RACE) services that offer virtualized computing resources as a service, provide a user self-service ordering capability for test and development (T&D) environments, and can be purchased on-line and rapidly provisioned are due to sunset in Fiscal Year 2015.
DISA is no longer accepting new RACE customers; however, if customers have T&D requirements they can contact the Cloud Services Branch, firstname.lastname@example.org, or their Customer Management Executive (CME) to aquire T&D services through milCloud.
Existing customers are still able to access all the RACE services through the Cloud Services Management Portal, https://www.milcloud.mil, and can contact their applicable service desk for any required support.
A new T&D service is being developed on milCloud to replace RACE. Mission partners interested in learning more about milCloud should visit the Cloud Services Management Portal at https://milcloud.mil or contact their Customer Management Executive (CME).
