Cloud Infrastructure Cop

Cloud and Infrastructure Community of Practice

The Cloud & Infrastructure Community of Practice (C&I CoP) is chartered under the Federal CIO Council and supported by GSA. The C&I CoP is designed for IT practitioners who want to learn about application rationalization, data center optimization, and federal cloud computing.

Join Us!

Any federal employee or mission-supporting contractor is welcome to become a member of the C&I CoP. Members can join monthly community meetings, participate in working groups, attend in-person conferences and virtual training courses, and connect with their peers through the CoP’s listserv.

Members are invited to use the platform provided by our monthly meetings to share insights and success stories, or to ask questions and seek knowledge from their peers, on:

  • Data center infrastructure management
  • Facility management and optimization
  • Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) Reporting
  • New technologies
  • Cloud migration best practices
  • Application Rationalization
