NJVC’s Kevin Jackson Pens Book on Cloud Computing Economic Model

Kevin Jackson

Kevin Jackson, vice president and general manager for cloud services at NJVC, has published a sequel to his 2001 book “GovCloud, ” where he outlines the characteristics of cloud computing and deployment and delivery models.

In “GovCloud II: Implementation and Cloud Brokerage Services, ” NJVC says Jackson explains how the cloud economic model can help with mission and business capabilities while taking resource expenditures into account.

Jackson co-authored both books with Don Philpott, editor of International Homeland Security Journal and a 20-year veteran of wire services Reuters and the Press Association.

According to book publisher Government Training, “GovCloud II” is targeted for information technology professionals and senior decision-making managers responsible for either cloud implementation or IT budgets.

Jackson and Philpott outline how infrastructure-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service can potentially help agencies reduce capital expenditures and limit sustainment costs.

Jackson spoke with our sister site TheNewNewInternet in February shortly after releasing a white paper on PaaS, describing it as a hybrid between Iaas and software-as-a-service.

PaaS “is infrastructure for your software, ” Jackson said (click here to read his full comments).
