<p>A common view of public sector cloud computing is that many cloud strategies are stalled in political maneuvering or concerns about intruders gaining access to sensitive areas of government networks. However, numerous agency-by-agency cloud solutions have either already been implemented or are about to launch. Supporting organizations, including governmental agencies and private sector organizations are creating an ecosystem of public sector cloud architectural requirements and best practices that correlate with new cloud grid installations.</p>
