DoD releases cloud computing strategy

The Defense Department has released its first strategy for cloud computing. The plan calls for a departmentwide cloud architecture, but it will be delivered by multiple cloud providers. The Defense Information Systems Agency will serve as DoD's cloud broker. It'll be in charge of continuing to develop DoD's private cloud, but coordinate the delivery of cloud services provided by commercial companies. DoD also plans to lean heavily on the new FedRAMP program, the federal government's new process for certifying that commercial cloud products are secure.
