Cloud & The Government Session at Cloud Computing Expo
Gain Insight Into The Government Cloud Computing Marketplace

Cloud Musings

In a recent study, published by MeriTalkRed Hat and DLT Solutions, the Federal government could save $6.6 billion by using cloud computing or software-as-a-service.

"Looking at 30 federal agencies, the study assumes every agency is starting from scratch with new technology. So instead of buying new software, agencies could save money using open-source instead of proprietary software, virtualization technologies instead of new servers, and cloud computing instead of buying software and hardware.

The numbers are based on federal agency budgets, using assumptions from other studies about federal computing resources."

Peter Tseronis, deputy associate chief information officer for the US Department of Energy commented on the study saying that even though critics may be able to quibble with the numbers, the big message is that federal agencies should be looking at new ways to save money with IT investments.
In the recent survey conducted by Dataline, Booze-Allen-Hamilton and 1105 Media, budget limitations was second only to datacenter limitations as the main issue for even considering cloud computing as a solution.
