Cloud Computing Code of Practice Released at Cloud Summit
Posted on 29-May-2012 16:07 | Tags Filed under: News



The New Zealand Computer Society (NZCS) has released the New Zealand Cloud Computing Code of Practice (or “CloudCode”) at the Cloud Computing Summit in Auckland.

The CloudCode was developed following calls from a number of significant Cloud providers for a framework of voluntary self-regulated disclosures and minimum standards for those offering cloud-based services in New Zealand. The CloudCode has been developed over the last six months.

NZCS CloudCode Coordinator Joy Cottle today said “As New Zealand’s main annual Cloud Computing event, it was great to be able to release the final version of the CloudCode at the NZ Cloud Computing Summit.”

“The Code received significant support at the Summit due to its plain English disclosure-based approach.” Cottle said. “The idea is to remove obfuscation and help Cloud users understand and differentiate good quality and secure Cloud Computing offerings”.

The CloudCode has been developed as an industry initiative under the auspices of the New Zealand Computer Society (NZCS), the independent professional body of the IT sector. More than 250 individuals and companies have contributed to its development.

“New Zealand is one of the first countries to develop such a code and there is now significant global interest in adopting the Code as an international project”, Cottle said.

NZCS chief executive Paul Matthews said today “The CloudCode Steering Group, made up of industry representatives, has asked NZCS to proceed with the establishing the Register and accreditation process for cloud providers compliant with the Code. This will be formally considered by the Society’s governing body next week.”

“The proposal is for the not-for-profit CloudCode Register to start taking registrations from cloud providers in August this year, following release of the full guidelines and complaints procedure.”

Development of the Code was funded by industry with major contributions from NZCS, Gen-i, Equinox, OneNet, Webdrive and Xero, plus Salesforce.com, Google, EOSS Online Ltd, InternetNZ, NZRise and Systems Advisory Services also contributing.
