Cloud Computing Highlighted at DoDIIS 2011

Cloud Computing Highlighted at DoDIIS 2011

Are you going to DoDIIS? Schedule for May 1-5, 2011 in Detroit, Michigan, the conference highlights the Defense Intelligence Agency’s (DIA) commitment to developing and maintaining secure and reliable networks for Department of Defense personnel, services and information technology customers. This year’s 3,000 attendees will focus on the “Secure and Collaborative Intelligence in Defense of the Nation” theme.
In an earlier interview DIA CIO Grant Scheider discussed the agency views on cloud computing:

“We’ve got three elements of the cloud architecture or infrastructure for the customer’s mission focus. One is our data layer, which is having our data available and its native authoritative location so we don’t have to keep making copies of databases, if you will. The second piece is our identity and access manager, which is the regulator of who gets to see and access which data. And the third piece is the application environment, which needs to move to a widget environment where the customer can select the various tools to provide their operational capabilities and then those applications would be leveraged by the identity access manager to give them access into the appropriate data sources.”

I will be there as well. With our partners, NJVC will be presenting an exciting set of secure cloud services offerings. Provisioned from the teams HSPD-12 compliant, PIV/CAC card enabled secure cloud platform, these services are available through our GSA Infrastructure-as-a-Service blanket purchase agreement. Unlike traditional RFP that entails capital expenditures and inordinate procurement delays, our cloud services are provisioned from an online link just as if you were using Google to do an online search or Netflix to rent a movie.

  • Analytics and Pipeline Services courtesy of Appistry
