Google Government Cloud & Public Sector Solutions September 24, 2009

Two announcements in the last week from Google focusing on the Public Sector.

The first being that Google is engaged with the US Federal Government to create a secure Government Cloud. That is, all the Google services, but secured out to the Federal Government alone.

At a recent Longhaus Hypothetical “Government with its Head in the Cloud“, Local (Australian) Government organisations have said that a similar approach would be needed for any significant uptake by Australian Government bodies. I’m sure they will be watching the US Feds closely as they delve into this initiative.

And also last week, but noticed by me today on Twitter, Senator Conroy launched Google for Public Sector.

Both a serious play at the, Federal in particular, Governments in the US and Australia, and I assume other countries as well.
