[Recipe for disaster] Pentagon kicks off a winner-take-all among tech
companies for multibillion-dollar cloud-computing contract


        Given the high stakes, the Pentagon's plans to pick a single
        winner have alarmed industry officials who fear the losers
        could be locked out of a multibillion-dollar program for a
        decade or more.  "The Pentagon would never limit the Air Force
        to flying only cargo planes for every mission," said Sam
        Gordy, the general manager for IBM U.S. Federal. "Locking the
        entire U.S. military into a single, restrictive cloud
        environment would be equally flawed."
