    The government has taken the next step towards the creation of the G Cloud with a tender notice, posted on the Government Procurement Service website, for a £60m framework to provide cloud computing services across the public sector.

    It has invited suppliers to bid for four 'lots', covering infrastructure as a service, platform as a service, software as a service and specialist cloud services.

    The initial framework will run for six months. The Cabinet Office has previously indicated that the contract is likely to be followed by another tailored to reflect feedback from suppliers and public authorities.

    It sounds like they are going for 3 clouds rather than one for the different *AAS things... all done by different vendors....

    You know that integrating these is going to be a clusterfcuk of epic proportions.
