DTAG Cloud Computing Working Group

"Cloud Computing is a service that offers use of software (applications) and infrastructure (such as data centers, servers, routers, storage media, etc.) for creation, collection, processing, storing, maintenance, use, sharing, transmission, dissemination, or disposition of information. Because the cloud can take several forms, the DTAG employed the U.S. Department of Commerce National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) definition of Cloud Computing in NIST SP 800-145, “Definition of Cloud Computing.” Technical data (as defined in ITAR 120.10) is one of the types of information that can be created, collected, processed, stored, maintained, used, shared, transmitted, disseminated or disposed of in a cloud. Cloud service providers rely on shared and distributed resources to maximize efficiencies and economies of scale. These resources may be distributed over many nations and many time zones but this distribution of resources is not transparent to the user. When the grid is reaching maximum capacity, the ability to move information to avoid overload is critical. "
