Amazon has reportedly reached a deal to provide cloud computing services to the Central Intelligence Agency.

Federal Computer Week reports the 10-year deal is worth $600 million.

Amazon Web Services would help the CIA build a private cloud infrastructure to keep up with emerging technologies.

Amazon officials reportedly would not confirm the contract and a CIA spokesperson declined to comment.
