War stories from the cloud

John Barrette, Senior Acquisition Specialist at Odyssey Systems consulting group, said that in the USAF, what he has seen are 'cloud pipes'. Barrette is also a former U.S Air Force officer. The concept of cloud pipes is were multiple groups within the military are moving to a cloud model but each one of them is moving in a different way. So the Army could be building one thing and the USAF is doing another pipe and none of them talk to each other.

"We're trying to prevent that," Barrette said. "One way to do that is with open source."
