This is a great article that was published in Wired last year.  I thought I would include it to help explain the push for the US government into leveraging cloud computing system.  As the government redefines their business service models, they are moving towards a ‘CloudFirst’ strategy.  This article helps to explain that research firms such as IDC are saying that by FY 2014 U.S. Federal government spending on private cloud will be $1.7 billion vs. just $118.3 million on public cloud.
