Cloud Mail To Be Sold To US Gov

A new craze has opened in the battle between Google Inc. and Microsoft Corp.  The selling of Web-based email and other software to the federal government. The US Gov hopes to cut costs by switching to Web-based software from programs installed on their own computers.

Something funny that I didn’t know is more than 90% of the federal government uses Microsoft Exchange for email, Curt Kolcun, vice president of Microsoft’s public-sector business states.  The cloud is luring Gov agencies because of cost savings.  Hosting your email in the cloud cost far less than hosting on your own desktop machine. The Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Labs earlier this year shifted its 5,000 email accounts to Google Apps, according to a government report in May. And more than 10 other agencies have started pilot programs to test Google Apps, a company spokesman says.

How much could cloud servers help the Federal Gov.  A report by the Obama administration’s chief information officer says the concept could help trim the federal government’s $76 billion annual budget for computer equipment and software.  What could this cloud hosting savings help with?  Helping the US people with this stupid depression that it has going on.  Let’s get out of the current funk we have.  Switch the Federal Gov to email cloud servers and make this work.  Cloud Mail is the way of the future.
