Taiwan is constructing a cloud computing platform for environmental administration with a 4-year budget of NT$600 million, according to Environmental Protection Administration (EPA). The Taiwan government has plans to establish a total of 10 cloud computing platforms for use in 10 separate fileds of administration with a total budget of NT$7 billion (US$237 million). Two of them – one for food and the other for medical care – were already completed in late 2012.
The environmental cloud computing platform consists of an environmental resources database, a platform for data exchange and another for open use of environmental data. Local system integration service provider Syscom Computer Engineering is responsible for setting up the data exchange platform and the database and fellow company International Integrated Systems is setting up the open-use platform, EPA said.
