The U.S. Army will discuss plans for integrating cloud computing into its enterprise architecture and broader IT transformation, during an InformationWeek Government Webcast on Weds., June 23. It's a unique opportunity to hear one of the world's largest IT user organizations share its strategy for the emerging cloud model.The Webcast, titled "Cloud Platform Strategy," takes place June 23 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m., Eastern. It's the second Webcast in a three-part series by InformationWeek Government that's intended to help government agencies develop and implement private clouds. Government IT pros and others can register for the Webcast here.

Col. Gary Langston, chief of Information Infrastructure Integration for the Army, will provide an overview of where cloud computing fits into the Army's Global Defense Network and how cloud services will be used in support of U.S. soldiers and Army employees at Army posts, at home, during travel, and in other situations. The plan calls for the use of private clouds in area processing centers that will support data services, enterprise business intelligence, and other capabilities.

Our other speakers will include Howard Clifford, Hewlett Packard's chief technologist for homeland security and intelligence, and Jim Blakley, Intel's director of data center virtualization and cloud integration.

In a recent interview with InformationWeek, the Army's deputy CIO, Michael Krieger, revealed that the Army has put a moratorium on server purchases to ensure that all new server deployments fit into its virtualization and data center consolidation plans. Krieger said the Army already uses cloud-like computing environments for intelligence and battle command, but said there may be bigger opportunities in "Army scale" private clouds. For more from that interview, see "Army Outlines Cloud Strategy."

Join us for a Webcast in which we'll analyze the key IT infrastructure considerations that must be taken into account for creating private clouds in federal data centers. It happens June 23. Click here to find out more and register.
