CASE STUDY #1 - Security and Compliance
NASA needs a shared storage solution that is not in the public cloud
NASA needs a shared storage solution, comparable to SharePoint from an end-user perspective, for its external employees and contractors. The storage solution must first integrate with a single sign-on solution and be subject to regular certification audits and must meet certain compliance and regulatory requirements.
In this case, SharePoint is well suited for the general public, but not for organizations that have higher security requirements and compliance regulations. In the end, NASA uses its own VMWare infrastructure to set up a self-hosted file-sharing solution that resembles SharePoint.
