Federal Cloud Computing Wiki

With the fast growing interest in cloud computing, the Federal Government community has established a Federal Cloud Computing Wiki. This wiki is managed by Dr. Brand Niemann, Senior Enterprise Architect with the US Environmental Protection Agency. This new wiki, along with the Federal SOA Community of Practice wiki are Web 2.0 tools for the Federal IT architect. 

"The Federal SOA CoP is an open community of practice fostered to assist government and commercial organizations in achieving the promise of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) through collaboration, demonstration and community efforts. The Federal SOA CoP is open to all.  Participation is encouraged by users, who want to better understand how SOA may benefit their organization, by academia who may want to discuss research directions, and by standards organizations and vendors who would like to better understand user needs and help users better understand how the SOA approach can benefit their organization."

Please take a look at Dr. Niemann's talk oncollaborative wikis and Communities of Practice.

Cloud Musings and the SOA-R Interactive Network Group looks forward to sharing and collaborating with the Federal Cloud Computing wiki and the Federal SOA CoP.
