It was disappointing to see very little changes to this highly criticized approach that will put our nations most important defense secrets into a commercial Cloud. We could not find one Fortune 500 company who either chose a single cloud, or put their mission critical apps into a commercial cloud. Private Cloud are the most secure and unlikely to crash due to thinks like memory buffer overload as we see weekly with AWS.
