NCOIC Plenary: Cloud Computing Working Group

NCOIC Plenary: Cloud Computing Working Group

Last week, I had the pleasure of participating in the NCOIC Cloud Computing Working Group. Led by Cisco Systems Distinguished Engineer, Mr. Krishna Sankar of Cisco Systems, the meeting purpose was to decide if the NCOIC would officially organize a focus on cloud computing. As Terry Morgan, the current NCOIC Chairman would put it, a decision to organize would formalize an effort to define cloud computing’s place in the netcentric ecosystem.

I’m happy to report a decision to move forward with an Adhoc Working Group. The group would focus on the technical, operational and business requirements of a “federal-grade” cloud infrastructure. The initial draft charter outlines the following goals:
  • Develop collateral on the current “state of the union” of the cloud computing domain,
  • Document best practices, architectures and blueprints
  • Explore the effect of the cloud computing paradigm to NCOIC deliverables (i.e. NIF, NCAT, et al)
  • Work on pragmatic cloud projects that would enhance current NCOIC deliverables

The group also agreed to participate in two near-term events:

I personally look forward to working with this new team and welcome my readers to provide recommendations or suggestions.
