Re: Is CalCloud intended primarily for public-facing apps?
MDMConsult,

Not just Encryption around Data at Rest and Data in Motion but also looking at how Apps are structured and where they are stored is very important.

We need to also inculcate a better level of Security culture all through our Organizations to get folks more in tune with what's acceptable User Behavior and what is'nt.

The same goes for App developers too.

Regards

Ashish.

@Ashu001 Thanks. The right authentication measures should meet the requirements of full security which can also be extended to other tools. A good solution which can encrypt data and support user identity is also good.

Re: California Cloud Brokerage
"It is the resposibility of the state and the California Department of Technology to make sure that the model meets all expectations"

HH, I think it's in other way. Customer can suggest only their requirements; implementation team (IBM) has to take care about it. I mean whether it's meeting the customer expectations.

Re: State governments for Cloud Technology
"It's a private cloud -- IaaS."

Shane, thanks for the clarification. You mean private in the sense exclusive for state and government agencies.

Re: California Cloud Brokerage
Houngbo,

Whenever you have the State involved in any such Transaction(and with so much Responsibility);one needs to be so wary because of the State's Past record of Messing up such Deals.

Till the whole things is completed entirely then we really can't be sure about what they are really getting today.

Regards

Ashish.

"IBM (NYSE: IBM) is supplying and managing the infrastructure, the state and the California Department of Technology will manage the service offering." 

It is the resposibility of the state and the California Department of Technology to make sure that the model meets all expectations.

Re: Is CalCloud intended primarily for public-facing apps?
"The CalCloud concept is the first of its kind to be implemented in the US at the state level, according to IBM"

That sounds interesting! Could that be expanded to other states as well? One important benefit is that "the data stays in the state's control." I think state legislators will like that idea.

Re: California Cloud Brokerage
stratuscan,

The model is interesting for sure.

Just was wondering if this means I am locked into the IBM way of doing things?

IBM has this funny way of doing things here-They constantly buy new product companies in their desperation to stay relevant but then fail to integrate everything properly together confusing things for not just their employees but customers as well.

Will this product also meet the same fate?

Regards

Ashish.

California Cloud Brokerage
With this model, CalCloud is basically its own cloud brokerage as they would be able to provision and secure services between government agencies, while sharing costs.  It's a great move towards standardizing and securing government resources, and is definitely a great model that other states could use for their own agencies.
