BIG DATA PLATFORM (BDP)
Currently, the ACE sits on top of the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA)s Big Data Platform (BDP). Though there are a lot of choices for hosting ACE, the DISA BDP has the advantage of a large user community across several Services and Combat Support Agencies. The DISA BDP is currently a funded program of record through the DISA Program Executive Office, and has an Authority to Operate on several Air Force enclaves. This makes the DISA BPD a logical choice for a hosting environment.
