Australian Government Cloud Computing Guidelines

The Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO) and National Archives of Australia has released a series of cloud computing guides for comment. But there are so few suitable government applications for cloud computing, that perhaps the guides should concentrate on those. The cloud technology could be applied within computer systems under government control, but generally government data (and the data the government holds about its citizens) is not suitable for placing on a distributed, shared, global computer system.
