Cloud crusader. Pal is on the frontlines of cloud migration at Smartronix. He led the implementation of FedRAMP-compliant cloud broker solutions for the Interior Department and was heavily involved in the migration of Recovery.gov to Amazon's public cloud, which saved the government more than $750,000 and earned the distinction of being the first federal enterprise system to be hosted in a public cloud. Pal was also instrumental in migrating Treasury.gov to Amazon's Virtual Private Cloud and cutting Treasury's monthly hosting costs by 13 percent.
