Greetings from the CSIRO Labs at Black Mountain in Canberra, where the
Australian Government is consulting members of the computing profession
on a cloud computing protocol. Previously this was to be called a "code"
but that has a specific meaning under the Telecommunications Act. The
idea is to provide a set of requirements which cloud computing providers
would adhere to, to make consumers more confident as to what service
they were going to get. Obvious issues include the privacy of the
consumer's data and the reliability of the service. There is a National
Cloud Computing Strategy from government and media release on the
Australian Computer Society's involvement. Roland Padilla is researching
this topic for his PHD at University of Melbourne and is sharing some
preliminary results with us.
