The federal government is planning an aggressive move toward lower-cost cloud computing technologies, providing new revenue opportunities for recent entrants to the federal market, including Google Inc. and Amazon.com Inc. Cloud computing, a model where users access a set of shared computer resources via a network connection, offers the potential to more quickly deploy new computing resources when needs change, while reducing federal expenditure on information technology (IT) installation, maintenance and support.

The push for cloud computing is driven by a government-wide initiative to consolidate the number of data centers which have grown 14 percent annually over the past 12 years. Launched in February 2010, the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative calls for reducing the number of data centers by 39 percent by 2015.
