Government agencies still skeptical on the public cloud

Government agencies aren’t likely to move their core data to the cloud just yet partially because they can’t be sure their data won’t be moved to servers across state lines where different regulations could apply to how it can be accessed or stored. If cloud service providers want to lure government agencies, they’ll have to provide SLAs that ensure data will be held to specific zones. In this 3-minute video, New York State Deputy CIO Rick Singleton talks about the regulatory challenges posed by the public cloud (similar to problems the health insurance industry has with the cloud), and why there is not enough interoperability between private and pubic clouds.
