Capitalizing on Jagwire’s flexibility and scalability, it was determined using Jagwire in the cloud, hosted on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform, would provide the most cost-effective approach for the USFS in both operational support and testing Jagwire for continued use. Using Jagwire in a cloud environment allowed the USFS to scale resources as needed, ultimately saving taxpayer dollars in not having to purchase and maintain additional hardware.
