GSA, DoD and NCOIC to Collaborate on Government Cloud Computing

Yesterday, during the NCOIC Cloud Computing Workshop, collaboration seemed to be the focus as Katie Lewin, GSA Cloud Computing Initiative Program manager, and Dan Risacher, DoD Cloud Computing Storefront project lead, both offered to collaborate on cloud computing with the Network Centric Operations Industry Consortium (NCOIC). As the interim chairman of the NCOIC Cloud Computing Working Group (CCWG), I welcomed the offer and promised that the NCOIC will do it’s part and serve as their “industry panel” in this quickly evolving space.

In line with the NCOIC mission, the CCWG was chartered to collaborate and engage with other cloud activities to look at standards-based solutions specifically for government mission areas. The overarching goal is to ensure peer-to-peer cloud interoperability, improve usability/trust of the cloud and establish portability across clouds. In support of the established NCOIC Integrated Project Teams (IPTs), the CCWG will work to establishment cloud computing standards in the following mission areas:

  • Aviation
  • Command, Control & Communications Interoperability
  • Net Enabled Emergency Response
  • Sense & Respond Logistics
  • Maritime; and
  • Cyber Security

To accomplish it’s task, CCWG member have identified current industry activities as input
sources to specific NCOIC deliverables. This roadmap will be used to initially guide the working
groups activities.

UPDATE:

During the second day of the NCOIC Plenary session the Services Working Group held a great follow-up session that included a brief from Henry Sienkiewicz, Technical Program Director, Computing Services at DISA. His Cloud Computing: A perspective, provides an excellent overview of the Rapid Access Computing Environment (RACE), the GIG Content Delivery Service (GCDS) and Forge.mil, DISA’s collaborative platform for software development
