Federal Cloud Computing Roadmap

ServerVault, a long time provider of IT hosting services to the Federal government, has been discussing cloud computing quite a bit with their current (and future) customers.  The repetitive nature of the many varied conversations led John Curan, ServerVault EVP, COO and CTO, to put together a standard briefing on the subject. His “Federal Cloud Computing Roadmap” puts forth a possible answer to:

“What set of actions by the cloud computing industry (and related parties) would allow Federal agencies to gain the benefits of cloud computing while maintaining compliance with Federal IT policy?”
By referencing FISMA, OMB guidance and FIPS Publication 199, he clearly lays out the Federal CIO’s dilemma when it comes to cloud computing.  It a good read and is probably very similar to the process that NIST is currently going through as they draft their Cloud Computing Security Publication. NIST’s Perspectives on Cloud Computing and Standards should make your reading list as well.
