Microsoft will soon launch a dedicated multi-tenant cloud environment that meets the distinct requirements of U.S. government agencies.

The Windows Azure U.S. Government Cloud will be an exclusive community cloud available for U.S. state, local and federal government agencies. It will be hosted in Microsoft data centers located in the U.S. and managed by U.S. citizens. Cloud facilities that share content with non-governmental organizations or fail to meet data residency and oversight requirements have generally been out of the running for most federal agencies due to security concerns.

The difference between this government-only cloud and Microsoft’s public Windows Azure cloud computing environment is “we can guarantee government tenants are physically and logically separated from other tenants — and we’ll meet the more stringent security controls required by Department of Defense,” said Susie Adams, CTO for Microsoft’s federal government business, in an interview with InformationWeek.

“The dedicated government cloud will give agencies the ability to design and deploy a combination of on-premises, private, public or hybrid cloud environments based on their security requirements,” she said.
