The Air Force Magazine published a Daily Report 3 April 2014 titled “NETWORK MIGRATION”.  The following is reprinted with the permission of the Air Force Association.NETWORK MIGRATION:  The Air Force Network Integration Center at Scott AFB, Ill., completed the transfer of all Air Force user accounts and workstations to a single set of shared infrastructure.   “This is truly a significant milestone for Air Force cyberspace,” said Air Force Space Command boss Gen. William Shelton, in an April 1 base base release.  “Completing this portion of the migration not only paves the way to the JIE [joint information environment] for us, it is also critically important to our future enterprise and to the defense of Air Force networks on a global scale.  “Air Force organizations have been operating under “their own independent networks, consequently driving unique and unit specific requirements,“ said Markus Rogers, director of network architectures and lead of the AFNET transition.  AFN now holds 646,000 email boxes and 12,318 servers at 275 Air Force-related sites, creating a “centrally-managed standardized structure under the operational control of the 24th Air Force commander,” states the release.  The project took five years to complete.

Robert Jack won a Distinguished Civilian Service Award while serving as the A6 for AF Global Strike Command.  Prior to that he served in Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) and Secretary of the Air Fforce A6/ Chief Information Officer (CIO).  He's now on the staff of the USMC/ G6/ CIO. Scott is well known to many of our members. (Article)
