A NASA research facility wants to adopt a commercial cloud platform to manage scientific virtual collaboration, mobility and enterprise functions, Federal News Radio reported Monday.

The station reports NASA’s Ames Research Center in California has partnered with the space agency’s Washington headquarters to form an organization that will facilitate cloud migration at the facility.

Jerry Davis, NASA Ames chief information office, said the organization is also working on requirements and specifications for its future cloud infrastructure, according to an article by Jason Miller.

“We are doing all the front-end work as it relates to security,” he told the station in a recent interview.

“We don’t want to rush into things, set ourselves up for compromises, vulnerabilities and that sort of thing,” he added, according to Miller’s report.

Miller reports the center launched a pilot program to assess how the organization can monitor usage and billing of commercial cloud services and aims to implement a cloud design model during the next year or so.
