Alphabet Inc Google is pursuing a massive cloud-computing contract with the Department of Defense, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Google abandoned a similar bid process three years back in the face of employee protests.

Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian recently met Pentagon officials to discuss the bid process for a contract called the Joint Warfighting Cloud Capability.

three-year contract will be split across multiple bidders, replacing the 10-year, $10 billion JEDI cloud-computing contract terminated in July.

project was a bone of contention between Microsoft Corp, which won the bidding, and Amazon.com Inc, which contended the process was politically motivated under the Trump administration.

officials expect cloud-industry leaders Amazon and Microsoft to bid on the contract and other qualified bidders like Oracle Corp and International Business Machines Corp.

Google’s cloud marketing share of 6 percent lags considerably behind Amazon at 41 percent and Microsoft at 20 percent.
