Pentagon cancels $10B JEDI cloud contract which was awarded to Microsoft but faced legal challenges from Amazon.
Microsoft got the contract in 2019, and Amazon sued saying that President Trump's animosity toward Amazon's CEO Jeff Bezos influenced the decision.

The 10-year Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) contract would have helped the Department of Defense move data to the cloud.

Happy first day, Andy Jassy :)
