​The Cloud Computing Reference Architecture standard will enable the Government of Alberta (GoA) to be an effective adopter of Cloud Computing, and provide more responsive and efficient IT services. 

The standard provides a "one-enterprise" approach for Cloud Computing to guide the GoA IT and government business.  Careful consideration is given to security, privacy, classification of information, and availability of the Cloud Computing services.

The GoA will adopt the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cloud Computing Reference Architecture with the amendments described in the "GoA Cloud Computing Reference Architecture" document.
