This connector enables SharePoint users to interact with content stored in any repository that has implemented the CMIS standard, as well as making SharePoint 2010 content available to any application that has implemented the CMIS standard. The release includes a web part that can be configured to display content from other repositories that support the standard. It remains to be seen whether this standard will enable us to connect our information silos.
American Army in the Cloud: If you still have concerns about security and stability issues in cloud computing environments, you may be reassured by the recent announcement that the US Army plans to deploy their own private cloud.

If it takes a 26-page military specification (MIL-C-44072C) to describe how to make brownies in the army, I would hate to see the size of the spec for their cloud!
