The Commonwealth’s most sensitive data will be stored across Amazon Web Services facilities and shared with Defence and national intelligence agencies through a new Top Secret Cloud from 2027.

Amazon will run the Top Secret Cloud at purpose built facilities in undisclosed locations and offer a variety of cloud services like artificial intelligence and machine learning under the deal.
