The implementation of the Government Cloud solution is a foundation for public e-services and solutions. The solution will help to integrate the existing siloed IT infrastructure of the Estonian public sector into shared pool of resources.
The Estonian public institutions will gradually transit from existing legacy systems to a new Government Cloud solution, which has been developed in accordance with the national IT Security Standard, to ensure the compliance with safety and quality requirements. For example, sensitive personal data is stored and handled with confidentiality, and integrity.
The Estonian Government Cloud is developed in collaboration between the Estonian Government, represented by the State Infocommunication Foundation (RIKS), and a consortium of private sector companies including Cybernetica, Dell EMC, Ericsson, OpenNode, and Telia.
