Cloud Computingに対する NSFの姿勢 (力の入れ方) が解るような感じです。
NSF Reportから

  "NSF is pleased to submit this report to Congress on the outcomes of
   National Science Foundation investments in cloud computing research,
   recommendations for research focus and program improvements,
   and other related recommendations,as required by section 524.c of
   the America Competes Reauthorization Act of 2010.

   NSF appreciates the considerable discretion given by 524.b.2,
   allowing NSF to define programs of research and NSF's Program
   Officers to seek and manage research projects in Cloud Computing
   according to their best scientific judgments."

1. Introduction: The Importance of Cloud Computing
  "The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has
   identified Cloud Computing as a vital area of national importance
   that requires further research and development; ..."
  "Accordingly, NSF is committed to providing the science
   and engineering communities with the opportunity to conduct research
   and education activities in cloud and data-intensive computing
   and their applications."
