Unfortunately, I'm on the front lines of this initiative, and it ain't all roses and honey. For instance, we couldn't use a commercial cloud service because none of them support a high enough level of security. This means the AF has to setup its own "cloud". What do you imagine you get when you have people that don't know what they're doing or why they're doing it setting this kind of thing up?

You get chaos and connectivity issues. That's what you get.

And instead of stopping a patentedly bad idea in its tracks, everyone says, "Well, all we can do is go along, and wait for it to fail", all because some general somewhere has a massive erection for "the cloud" because some sales nazi sold him a bill of goods on some technology that is NOT fit for DoD consumption.

Yes. I'm bitter and annoyed.
