Feds: We Need Priority Access To Cloud Resources 183

New submitter BButlerNWW writes "Federal agencies must be assured priority and uninterrupted access to public cloud resources before fully embracing the technology for national security and emergency response IT functions, a recent report finds. It recommends creating a program to develop a system to ensure federal organizations receive 'first-in-line' access to cloud-based resources during emergency situations."

    After all, the government and corporations are fuck buddies, giving them better access would be part of the deal.

    How about this, the government makes a fucking cloud server, make sure it's up to the security they want, and open it up for the public to use, instead of relying on a corporation who only cares about making as much money as possible for the 1%ers.

    The is just another is a long series of recent articles that have totally distorted the original news.

    First it was EPICs reaction to Obama's executive order.

    Then it was the Nature article on tree rings.

    Now it's a complete distortion of an government study on use of distributed IT resources.

    Slashdot has turned into the Fox equivalent of nerd news.
