Inc. said it planned to ask a judge to temporarily block Microsoft Corp. from performing any substantial work on a $10 billion Pentagon cloud contract until its lawsuit challenging its validity resolved.
Microsoft was awarded the $10 billion Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) contract in October past year, which involves moving the Department of Defense's data over onto the cloud.
Amazon, which was seen as a favorite for the contract, plans to file a motion for a temporary restraining order on January 24 and a federal court will issue its decision on February 11, according to the filing. Amazon did not respond to a request for comment and the DoD could not be immediately reached. Amazon is doing all it can to make sure Microsoft regrets winning the cloud contract with the Pentagon. Potentially worth up to $10 billion over 10 years, the contract is part of the DoD's digital modernization strategy for the military, and its award to Microsoft was seen as a giant upset for AWS, which was viewed as the frontrunner. "These fundamental errors alone require reversal".
Amazon will file for a preliminary injunction to bar Microsoft from completing any substantive JEDI tasks, according to a new court document published Monday.

It is expected that Amazon's motion will be challenged on the grounds that it should have been filed earlier.
Amazon intends to file its formal request to stop the work on 24 January and both Microsoft and the US Department of Defence intend to file partial dismissals.
Microsoft will move to dismiss the case, according to Bloomberg.
