The Taiwan GovCloud

Last week, Henry Kenyon of Federal Computer Week reported that the Taiwanese government is planning to spend $744M to develop cloud computing technology. Premier Den-yih Wu sees this as a way for his country to take advantage of the country's strong information and communications technology industry.

According to an August 2010 IEEE Spectrum article, a cabinet level advisory task force has now been formed to help government agencies choose which cloud computing projects to fund.  The government is building its own private cloud in order to combine the information systems in over 4000 government agencies into two or three cloud computing centers.
