Creating Utah's Cloud Infrastructure
Source: State of Utah
In August 2009, Utah CIO announced that the state of Utah was preparing a private cloud that would deliver "Hosted email and web applications" to cities and counties within the state. In fact, Utah's cloud strategy has its roots long before that time and the strategy is much deeper. The technology climate that has developed in Utah government made it a natural place to create the first state cloud strategy. In 2005, the state had consolidated its technology assets into a single department, moving all state IT personal under the state Chief Information Officer.
