The economical pressure decreases budgets in the public sector which in turn increases the pressure for developing novel innovations to ensure adequate computational capabilities and resources in every operative scenario. Total costs of ownership prevent the construction of datacenters which are capable enough when the requirements for computational capabilities are greatest. In this paper, we propose a concept for the evaluation, standardization and deployment of cloud environments and public networks in order to dynamically extend the high security public cloud environment.
