Q. What is the Asia Cloud Computing Association (ACCA)?
A. The group has been formed to foster collaboration and innovation among stakeholders in cloud computing in Asia.

While there are other organizations and standards bodies involved in various aspects of cloud computing, there is no group that specifically is involved in the Asian market or that is focused entirely on enabling collaboration and education in that market. Compared to the United States or Europe, Asia's cloud computing environment is fragmented and faces a wide variety of regulatory and compliance issues.
