The National Institute of Standards and Technology has partnered with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering in an effort to develop interoperability standards for cloud computing platforms, MeriTalk reported Wednesday.

Robert Bohn, NIST’s cloud computing program manager, said at an FCW-hosted Wednesday the agency aims to formulate a concept to support cloud data exchange among intra- and inter-organizational government teams.

NIST aims to publish a draft document on proposed “federated” cloud standards by the end of next month, then collect public feedback within a 60-day period.

The agency’s partnership with IEEE seeks to determine government, business and medical applications of the upcoming guidelines, the report noted.
