Cloud-Friendly, Virtual, Information Assurance and Cross Domain Services

Cloud is a powerful paradigm precisely because it represents a fundamental departure from other IT provisioning paradigms. In particular cloud efficiencies result from carefully architecting dynamically re-configurable logical separation of computer network resources in lieu of static physical separation. Well-designed cloud-enabled services are provisioned in ways that are totally independent of the physical attributes of the runtime environment. This is essentially the definition of “cloud” and why cloud services are highly scalable. (Mell & Grance, 2011) Hence, the most effective cloud technical architectures are those that most effectively factor service processes into cloudready virtual machines. A virtual machine, by definition, is some set of hosted processes that is logically separated from other processes and hosts.
Chris Gunderson is a Research Associate at the Naval Postgraduate School. He is the principal investigator of the Open Enterprise Information System (OEIS) research initiative. This project sponsored by the Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence and executed in the Northern Virginia. The project objective is to help the government improve its flawed information technology acquisition process through four key activities: Establish a collaborative network of government, industry, and academic experts who have succeeded at some aspect of OEIS; Study Internet successful stories and distill the lessons learned; Embed lessons learned into familiar government acquisition artifacts; Work with early adopting pilot projects to verify, validate, refine, and document best practices
