Government still wary of cloud computing

Federal News Radio interviewed Ron Markezich, a corporate vice president of Microsoft, Mike Bradshaw, president of Google federal, and Michael Farber, a partner with Booz Allen on the government’s approach to cloud computing. Key comments:

  • Michael Farber – many agencies understand this approach, but few have figured out the best way.
  • Ron Markezich – Agencies need to understand how the cloud could fit into their architecture. The focus must be on the benefits.
  • Mike Bradshaw – The consumer model is less expensive than other models because you don’t have to focus as much on the infrastructure.
You can download Jason Miller’s report to hear the entire interview.
