IBM and NATO Team Up for a Cloud Based Project

From ZDNet and Cloud Law Consulting:  ZDNet has reported that NATO and IBM are collaborating for a cloud-based project with aims to launch new technologies more efficiently and to improve data sharing among the group’s 28 member countries.

The cloud computing model developed through the partnership will presumably be used for future military operations.  The IBM-driven project, whose goal is to deliver new technologies in a fraction of the time required now, will merge command, control, surveillance, intelligence, and reconnaissance efforts from the Headquarters of the Supreme Allied Commander Transformation in Norfolk, Virginia. IBM’s efforts to network together various strongpoints of the military may be valuable in the government’s cloud efforts in the future.
