Government Cloud Computing Value Survey

As part of a continuing Government Cloud computing education program, Dataline, LLC has released a Government Cloud Computing Value Survey. This online resource has been designed as an aid to help Federal agencies explore the value of cloud computing. Through a 15 minute interactive session, this survey will:

  • Provide a high level cloud computing tutorial;
  • Explain the Federal Cloud Computing Initiative;
  • Give an overview of Apps.gov cloud computing solutions; and
  • Present possible cloud computing business value statements.

Referencing a recent Booz Allen Hamilton cloud computing economic analysis, the survey includes a easy-to-use series of questions designed to efficiently work through some of the key cloud computing value statements. A Cloud Computing Cost/Benefit Ratio calculator is also included.

Cloud Musings

Calculator results provide only a representative example of the economic business case for cloud computing. The results should not be used for actual budget planning. The model used is derived from summary results of a Booz Allen Hamilton life-cycle cost (LCC) estimate of public, private, and hybrid clouds. That analysis assumes a 3-year transition period from a status quo (SQ) described as a 1000-server, unvirtualized datacenter. For each scenario, investment costs are incurred from FY10 to FY12 and includes (depending on the scenario) hardware procurement and commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software license fees; contractor labor required for installation, configuration, and testing; and technical and planning support (i.e., system engineering and program management costs) before and during the cloud migration.

    Great article!

    I am seeing more and more adoption of SaaS/cloud computing in the public setor (starting with LA County's adoption of Google Apps). What's interesting is that many public entities are starting with email (as well as ancillary services like email archiving, anti-spam/anti-virus protection, and encryption) which makes perfect sense for a cloud-based model.

    Check out http://www.cloudemail101.org for a great overview of the cloud email space, including some key considerations and gotchas for migrating to the cloud.

    Cloud computing is about maintaining applications and data through the central remote servers and the internet. With the help of this technology, consumers can use various applications and can have access to their personal folders at any system which has an internet access. The main idea behind this technology is to make the entire process of computing, centralized and efficient.
