- Easy to use management tools that allow the local operators to perform often used operations tasks through automation
The automated orchestration and deployment allow for a high level of automation when installing and configuring your tactical IT services. This means that you can deploy your services within hours, instead of days or weeks, and with fewer technical resources. OneCIS automated deployment solution is standalone solution and works autonomously. This enables the users to also deploy and redeploy their services in the field.

Tactical Private Cloud
MilDef OneCIS brings private cloud technology to the tactical edge, such as edge computing, automated orchestration of IT services and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Allows for delivery of tactical IT services by executing automated workflows rather than manual installations. Execute your deployment in hours rather than days or weeks, and get the same result each time, even in the field. No need for a static staging environment or subject matter experts.
OneCIS can utilize services from static data centres or other deployed capabilities according to NATO FMN. Locally installed services will work autonomous in case of communications failure by using the local tactical cloud computing resources
