Abstract

Commercial, government, and DoD organizations are adopting cloud computing as a way to reduce the operational cost of their information technology (IT) resources. The goal of SEI research is to create best practices for architecture and design of systems that take advantage of the cloud, leading to greater system quality from both a consumer and provider perspective. SEI research will also uncover the implications of data location, traceability, and caching strategies when data is placed in the cloud, and the criteria to determine the use of public vs. private clouds in Navy settings, and explore the option of hybrid clouds.
