On Thursday, May 20, 2010, NIST held a 1-day forum & workshop on Cloud Computing.

The purpose of this forum & workshop --

  • The Federal Chief Information Officer is charged with improving performance and lowering the cost of government operations by leveraging cloud computing.
  • The Federal CIO has asked the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to lead federal efforts on standards for data portability, cloud interoperability, and security.
  • NIST's mission, as a non-regulatory federal agency within the U.S. Department of Commerce, is to promote U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness by advancing measurement science, standards, and technology in ways that enhance economic security and improve our quality of life.
  • The goal of this event is to initiate engagement with industry to collaboratively develop standards and explore solutions for cloud interoperability, portability, and security.
