Mark Ryland, the Chief Solutions Architect for Amazon Web Services' Worldwide Public Sector team discusses how their customers are able to build their cloud applications AND meet the latest security requirements for their agencies:
At AWS, we provide robust physical security, isolation and control at the network layer, the storage layer, and on virtual machines all familiar best practices for customers today. Many agencies have been able to improve their security posture using the AWS cloud because the ease of deploying and managing cloud infrastructure gives them greater visibility and control over their IT resources. And for more sensitive workloads, our customers have access to GovCloud, a US Government AWS region built and operated to ITAR requirements.
Join AWS at the Public Sector Summit to learn more about GovCloud and more. October 10 in Washington DC. Visit aws.amazon.com/gov to register.
The Federal government's Cloud First Strategy identified $20 billion in potential savings from cloud computing. While this represents 25% of the total Federal IT budget, it corresponds to a measly 3% of the total Federal government's budget. Tapping into this larger cost savings opportunity won't be easy but it is a necessity. For this to happen, cloud computing needs to be better leveraged to bring not only IT efficiency but also to bring mission efficiency.
Cloud computing and innovation are intrinsically linked in the federal government. The idea of agencies moving commodity technology such as email or collaboration to the cloud begets their ability to be more innovative with both commodity and mission critical IT.
Gen. Keith Alexander, who runs the National Security Agency, endorsed the idea of using a cloud computing facility to share cybersecurity information with the private sector.

Agency recently made the switch; Global Computer Enterprises is providing the solution and explains.
