NIST publishes draft cloud computing standards

The National Institute of Standards and Technology published two draft documents on cloud computing today.

The first offers NIST’s definition of cloud computing and the second offers guidelines on security and privacy in cloud computing.

Both documents are open for public comment through February 28, 2011.

NIST also announced the launch of a new Cloud Computing Collaboration website which it says will “enable two-way communication among the cloud community and NIST cloud research working groups.”
