Q. What is the Asia Cloud Computing Association (ACCA)?
A. The group has been formed to foster collaboration and innovation among stakeholders in cloud computing in Asia.

The organization will focus on these to accelerate cloud computing adoption in the region.

Q. Why does the industry need another cloud association when there are a number of other such organizations?
A. While there are other organizations and standards bodies involved in various aspects of cloud computing, there is no group that specifically is involved in the Asian market or that is focused entirely on enabling collaboration and education in that market. Compared to the United States or Europe, Asia's cloud computing environment is fragmented and faces a wide variety of regulatory and compliance issues.

A. We see several areas that we impact. These include the policy and regulatory environments, security and best practices.

Q. What else can the organization deliver to enable adoption of cloud computing?

Q. What other kinds of companies would benefit from membership in the ACCA?
A. Hardware providers, such as those in the networking and computer markets; software developers; services providers; and carriers. We also encourage participation by researchers and academic institutions active in cloud computing issues as well as those involved in regulation and policy.
