The Hybrid Cloud: Insights from the Intelligence Community

From the beginning of the cloud computing trend, agencies have wrestled with which approach to take: A public cloud, in which their applications and data are managed by a commercial cloud provider, or a private cloud, in which they reside on an internal system. As it turns out, it often is not a clear-cut answer. Any given agency is likely to have some applications and data that might be appropriate for a commercial cloud service, while others clearly belong on a private cloud. That is where the hybrid cloud comes in. The hybrid cloud provides agencies with the flexibility and manageability they need to manage a mixed cloud environment.

The Intelligence Community (IC) is one of the pioneers in the hybrid cloud. As part of the Intelligence Community Information Technology Enterprise (ICITE), the IC leverages hybrid cloud capabilities to ensure that intelligence agencies have access to the applications and data they need, with a focus on big data and analytics. In this webcast, Todd Myers, Lead Global Compute Architect at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, will share insights and lessons learned in hybrid cloud from this ground-breaking project.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Key issues to consider when developing a governance model for a hybrid cloud environment.
  • Options to consider when developing the hybrid cloud business model in order to support current mission operations.
