SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. D2iQ, provider of the independent Kubernetes platform built to power smarter Day 2 operations, announced that the U.S. Air Force is using the D2iQ Konvoy Kubernetes distribution to support its transition to secure remote work.

According to officials, D2iQ worked directly with the U.S. Air Force to overcome scale, Kubernetes complexity, and security challenges to roll out its Mattermost platform, aiming to enable remote teams and combatant commands to stay in touch securely and coordinate information across a secure, distributed network.

In partnership with D2iQ, the Air Force had 80,000 personnel on the Mattermost platform within a week, supporting over a million Department of Defense employees working remotely. With the adoption of Mattermost, the Air Force intends to do pre-mission paperwork, go/no-go processes, flight authorization, and post-mission forms securely and efficiently.

With D2iQ Konvoy and other building blocks, the Air Force claims it was able to deliver fully automated and repeatable deployments within any environment in a matter of days.
