U.S. Government: NIST Goes Public with Cloud Computing Tech Road Map
The National Institute of Standards and Technology has released for public comment a draft “road map” designed to foster federal agencies’ adoption of cloud computing.
The road map also will support private-sector cloud efforts, improve the information available to decision-makers, and facilitate the continued development of the cloud computing model, NIST officials said.
“U.S. Government Cloud Computing Technology Roadmap, Release 1.0” (NIST Special Publication 500-293) is designed to support the secure and effective adoption of the cloud computing model by federal agencies. The public comment period is open through Dec. 2.
The draft publication defines high-priority requirements for standards, official guidance and technology developments that need to be met for agencies to accelerate their migration of existing IT systems to the cloud computing model.
