The Pentagon awarded Microsoft a 10-year, 10-year contract over Amazon on Friday, ending a hard-fought battle for which the tech giant will largely manage cloud-based cloud services.

The large-scale contract – known as the Joint Venture Infrastructure or JEDI, a cloud contract – was expected to be awarded to Amazon Web Services or AWS, which also manages the cloud computing services for the Central Intelligence Agency.

"We are surprised by this conclusion. AWS is the clear leader in cloud computing and a detailed evaluation, pure of comparative proposals, obviously leads to a different conclusion," an AWS spokesman told NPR in a statement.

Amazon's potential contract order was met with heavy criticism from other rivals, Republicans in Congress, and ultimately from President Trump, who has long been engaged in a major unilateral feud with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
