Overview: Today’s military, intelligence community and homeland security organizations are being pressured by rapid information technology developments. The increased importance and use of open source information, advances in Internet–based services and solutions, the rapid adoption and deployment of advanced information tools and the advent of multi-terabyte data streams and data sources all play a role in increasing the challenge. Many organizations are also looking forward to establishing globally networked and integrated information technology enterprises. The goal of these visions is to enable customer-driven intelligence, mission-focused operations, a net-centric information enterprises and enterprise integration. In order to attain its goal, organizations must align their information technology platforms with changing mission requirements. This alignment requires elastic resource scaling, rapid compute resource provisioning, compute resource virtualization and a business model that yields predictable cost. Cloud computing techniques can be used to address these functional requirements today. Dataline, and its industry partners, have developed a unique approach for leveraging cloud computing technologies and techniques in the support of national security mission requirements. Service Oriented Architecture–Realtime (SOA-R) enhances baseline cloud computing capabilities by adding:
- Multiple, independent resource clouds for infrastructure redundancy, surge support and enhanced service levels;
- SecureParser© cryptographic splitting technology for information protection and assurance; and
- Cisco Ad-hoc networking technologies for remote access and globally distributed access capabilities.
