Cross-posted from my Intelink blog. I realized that if I’m going to talk about Federal cloud computing, I should get input from the Federal community. 😉
I’ve been thinking a little bit about cloud computing lately and am wondering if the whole Federal government should be part of the same cloud, or if there should be sections of the cloud. I’m leaning toward the former, but am open to comments.
Also, if we had one big government cloud, wouldn’t it be great if each of us could login using the PKI cert issued to us by our own agency? I would hope this is something that the Federal Bridge could support.
If it works like Google Docs, will we be able to set permissions for people by email address, by cert type, by agency, etc.?
