RECENT CLOUD COMPUTING QUOTE:

"GoGrid’s Hosted Private Cloud is about avoiding the two largest fears regarding the adoption of Cloud Computing: the public Internet and sharing.

Customers are worried about consuming cloud services over the public Internet. There are over 3 million buildings connected to Equinix facilities in one way or another – this allows them to remove the public Internet from how they consume cloud services. GoGrid Hosted Private Cloud is a non-shared environment – it’s dedicated and private – which eliminates the 2nd big fear which is sharing – it provides security and performance benefits."
