Abstract
All branches of the armed forces are exploring the adoption of cloud computing. By pushing applications into the cloud, rather than relying on local computer resources, many of the deployment, security, redundancy, scalability and flexibility issues for tactical information systems are simplified. However, unlike traditional cloud computing applications that benefit from highly reliable, alwayson, high-bandwidth networks, the military cannot be guaranteed such stability. As such, different situations will arise in the case of at-sea data exchange. Cloud-based, cloud-to-disadvantagedcloud and cloud-to-no-cloud situations will occur. Therefore there is a need to investigate different strategies for information management and distribution in a cloud environment. This document presents the cloud architectures and information management models used within some of the major online service providers, namely Facebook and eBay. It provides insight on how these service providers developed and implemented solutions to the cloud to provide their services with state-of-the-art security, redundancy, scalability and flexibility.
