GSA moves USA.gov, Data.gov to cloud

Several of the U.S. government's most recognizable websites are moving to the cloud. The General Services Administration has signed a deal to transition sites including USA.gov, data.gov and several others to a privately hosted and managed cloud platform. GSA made the 20 million dollar award under its new blanket purchase agreement for cloud infrastructure-as-a-service. It's the second such major deal under that BPA. The Homeland Security department used the vehicle to move several of its public websites to the cloud last summer.
