The Cloud Storage Working Group is responding to challenges in effectively managing rapidly growing cloud storage. The group is evaluating opportunities for community action in both policy and technical arenas, through sharing of best practices, documentation, and identification of opportunities for improved methods. The Working Group will seek to engage cloud service providers and allied community groups in conversation to better understand ways to achieve cost effective and sustainable management of cloud storage.

The Cloud Storage Working Group was chartered by CSTAAC and supported by Internet2 NET+ staff. The current focus is on tool requirements for managing Google Workspace for Education storage.
