Recognizing the challenges of a rapidly evolving cloud services landscape, Internet2 NET+ recently launched the Cloud Scorecard Pilot Directory – offering the research and education (R&E) community a more efficient means to identify and assess cloud services for compliance, security, and technology requirements.

EdScoop recently interviewed Sean O’Brien, Internet2 director of NET+ cloud services, to learn more about the Cloud Scorecard, including the R&E community’s needs and design principles that drove the development of the scorecard, along with the ongoing assessments that will shape the future of the Cloud Scorecard project.
