The Communication, Web Presence, and Change Management sub-working group of the Cloud Storage Working Group has focused on the creation of a set of best practices for communications and documentation for the transition from unlimited storage to a storage-mindful environment.

The sub-working group comprised more than ten universities and was led by Matt Klein of Cornell University.
