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

"Using an IBM portal, a state or local agency can customize the computing it gets from CalCloud. An agency starts with a base server bundle and can select different options to fit its needs." This is very much the approach the US IT leaders have been advocating at the national level for at least 3 years. Seems California has gotten it done faster than the Fed agencies.

Single sign-on? When does it arrive?
As a California resident, it's great news that single sign-on is available through CalCloud but I wonder which state agencies are using it. Single sign-on is pie in the sky until, lets say, the Department of Motor Vehicles, State Parks, University of California, boat registration and fishing, game and wildlife permit processes or some other mix of state agencies all use it. What's going to be available--this yaer?

Re: Is CalCloud intended primarily for public-facing apps?
Yes, web hosting is part of the CalCloud infrastructure and it enables single sign-on.

Re: Bidding?
IBM only told me that it was a "competitive win." But wouldn't name names.

Is CalCloud intended primarily for public-facing apps?
The reference to single sign on for California citizens makes me think that this is intended for as a web hosting infrastructure to be shared between state and local government for services to the public. Is that the case?

If this is also for internal use, I'd imagine there would be single sign-on benefits within the government agencies as well, unless they've already achieved that by other means.

Bidding?
That's a big win for IBM. Do you know if Amazon, Rackspace or any other cloud provider also bid?
