  • Cloud Computing Initiative Vision and Strategy Document (DRAFT) February 2010 GSA Confidential and Proprietary – Not for Distribution
  • Federal Cloud Computing Vision and Mission
    • Cloud Computing Vision Statement
    • Establish secure, easy to use, rapidly provisioned IT services for the Federal Government, including:
        • Agile and simple acquisition and certification processes;
        • Elastic, usage-based delivery of pooled computing resources;
        • Portable, reusable and interoperable business-driven tools;
        • Browser-based ubiquitous internet access to services; and
        • Always on and available, utility-like solutions.
    • Cloud Computing Mission Statement
    • Drive the government-wide adoption of cost effective, green and sustainable Federal cloud computing solutions.

    Security & Data Privacy Delivery & Operations Offer different levels of security and data privacy based on the application and nature of the services provided. Potential standardize Low, Med and High categories for Simplicity. Enable adoption of Cloud Computing services in different Cloud models including Public, Private, Hybrid and Community models. Develop interoperability standards in conjunction with the industry to provide interoperability at the data infrastructure, platform and application levels. Interoperability & Integration Cloud Computing Services Federal Government Considerations for Cloud Computing GSA Confidential and Proprietary – Not for Distribution
  • The NIST Definition Offers Multiple Delivery Models for Cloud Computing Public Internet Public Cloud: The cloud infrastructure is made available to the general public or a large industry group and is owned by an organization selling cloud services. Community Cloud: The cloud infrastructure is shared by several organizations and supports a specific community that has shared concerns (e.g., mission, security requirements, policy, and compliance considerations). It may be managed by the organizations or a third party and may exist on premise or off premise. Hybrid Cloud: The cloud infrastructure is a composition of two or more clouds (private, community, or public) that remain unique entities but are bound together by standardized or proprietary technology that enables data and application portability (e.g., cloud bursting). Private Cloud Commercially Hosted: Publically available Cloud Computing services offered through commercial sources that are dedicated and separate from the Public both physically and logically and must to remain within the U.S. borders to support heighted data security and privacy requirements. Access to these services are provided through a dedicated Government Intranet and is not accessible from the Public Internet. Government Dedicated Intranet Private Government Cloud : The cloud infrastructure is operated solely for an organization. It may be managed by the organization or a third party and may exist on premise or off premise. Cloud Sourcing Models Outsourced Government Trust (Security and Data Privacy) High Low Private Government Cloud Private Commercially Hosted Cloud Public Cloud Hybrid Government Cloud Community Cloud GSA Confidential and Proprietary – Not for Distribution
