Operating Cloud : NRENs Case

In recent years, cloud computing is  one of the  trend topics in IT world. Companies use cloud as an enabler for new services while reducing the operational cost. Like the trends in commercial world, governmental institutions are looking for ways to use cloud services for their services.  Even though there are lots of commercial alternatives, governmental data is taught  as valuable enough to conceal from stakeholders. Thus, most of the governmental institutions prefer to implement these kind of private services on their own data centers.  However, they are lacking of required knowledge about innovative technologies like cloud services, they need professional and trustable support for either implementing or managing for these kind of services.  Getting these services from reliable governmental organisations rather than commercial or community driven ones is an alternative. At this point, NRENs could become a valuable partner for several organisations for both providing extended knowledge into national IT sector and operating reputable cloud services.
