In this paper, the authors present implementation strategies for building cloud-based IT environments for Korean central government agencies (K-Cloud Centers), to improve service delivery in the public sector and reduce the cost of government operations. This will be achieved by the introduction of cloud computing technologies in the data centers of the National Computing and Information Agency (NCIA). This paper also proposes an approach for building wide-area cloud-based IT centers for Korean local government autonomous entities (W-Cloud Centers), to enhance the efficiency of IT resource utilization via the consolidation of all IT resources operated by these local entities.
