Terremark is a leading cloud service provider that delivers just in time infrastructure services, as described in this excellent post on the Boxed Ice blog today titled, The New Server Density Infrastructure. This post, written by a Terremark customer shows that Terremark is not only interested in driving down their own costs, but also in helping their customers be more efficient too.
If you are interested in a behind the scenes look at how Teerremark does it, you owe it to yourself to check out this case study on Wikibon today. This chart from the Wikibon study shows how Terremark derives its operational savings (click on it to see an enlarged version)
Savings from storage were projected to be 86%.
Guess who their storage vendor is? (The report says what equipment they are using). But one big clue is that it isn't EMC, as EMC's Chuck Hollis suggested back in July.
Cloud industry insiders know this stuff. We don't have all the cloud customers, but we have some of the most largest and most influential ones. Nobody really knows what changes cloud computing will bring to our industry, but 3PAR is very well prepared to be a key component of those infrastructures.
