CIA building secure cloud-based system

Patrick Thibodeau | Oct. 20, 2009
The spy agency says its internal cloud enhances flexibility and keeps secret data safe.

Input, a government market researcher, expects that government cloud expenditures will grow from $363 million this year to $1.2 billion in 2014. "I think this is probably a conservative estimate, considering the push from the administration," said Deniece Peterson, an analyst at Reston, Va.-based Input.

Obstacles to the adoption of cloud computing, including concerns about security and loss of control over data, may slow momentum, but Peterson said she expects to see "broader adoption and higher spending after the administration makes progress in some of the pilot programs it has planned."
