Cloud and Infrastructure Mission Area
The ATARC Cloud and Infrastructure Pillar is a technical group of government, academia and private industry thought leaders collaborating on topics related to the Federal cloud & infrastructure community. The group’s goal is to pinpoint and hone in on various obstacles and challenges in cloud solution deployments in federal agencies. Then, in close alignment with government policies on data security, such as the Federal Cloud Smart Strategy, FedRAMP compliance and Trusted Internet Security (TIC) 3.0 guidelines, the collective aims to provide strategic recommendations to remove the identified cloud barriers, accelerate emerging cloud technology adoption, and increase efficiency and reduce cost using cloud smart and cutting-edge infrastructure solutions.

The focus is a loose conversation on lessons learned in modernization and transformation experiences past and present to share with the audience. We host the show every two weeks on Thursday mornings and we are looking for guest speakers to join us. You can find our past episodes on Youtube!
For many public sector agencies, multi-cloud initiatives have been driven through the lens of data center consolidation, cloud smart initiatives or expanding vendor pools and business opportunities across hyperscalers. Yet, beyond the simplicity of expanding access to cloud providers contractually, the reality of multi-cloud adoption involves myriad complexities to consider; both in initial cloud migration and in Day 2 operations.
