The General Services Administration awarded 11 vendors spots on the first governmentwide contract for cloud computing-

GSA announced Tuesday a blanket purchase agreement for infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), including cloud storage, virtual machines and Web hosting. All of these services eventually will be available through the portal.

"Offering IaaS on makes sense for the federal government and for the American people," said Vivek Kundra, federal chief information officer, in a release.
