HP offers G-Cloud security vision

We got to take a look at HP's vision for the G-Cloud and how security could be managed.

HP has a vision of what the Government's G-Cloud project could look like, although bottlenecks for an eventual rollout evidently remain.

The Labour Government announced its G-Cloud vision last year, as it hoped to implement a more cohesive IT infrastructure for departments to share information and work more efficiently together.

Since the Coalition came into power, the willingness to adopt a cloudy framework has remained, although the G-Cloud name has not seemingly been adopted.

Just recently minister for the Cabinet Office, Francis Maude, outlined plans for a simpler, more agile Government IT framework, with the cloud firmly a part of that strategy.

Today HP gave IT PRO its view of what the G-Cloud could look like, showing how HP would provide the infrastructure for service providers to offer products on top of.

It's the same vision shared with the Government and, in particular, George Osborne who visited HP Labs not so long ago.

Here's what he would have seen:

Next year, we were promised the walls would be covered with plenty of touchscreen technology for people to play around with, resembling something out of Minority Report.
