This news seems more interesting in light of the Fiberlight news from earlier today . (bolding mine) From Data Center Knowledge : Verizon will acquire colocation and cloud hosting provider Terremark for $1.4 billion in a deal that will accelerate the telecom providerâ€™s push into cloud computing. Verizon will pay $19.00 in cash for each share of Terremark, about a 35 percent premium to the stockâ€™s closing price ofÂ $14.05 a share. Verizon (VZ) said the acquisition will accelerate its â€œeverything-as-a-serviceâ€ cloud computing strategy by adding a portfolio of secure, scalable cloud solutions, along with Terremarkâ€™s large base of business and government customers. Verizon also gets Terremarkâ€™s global network of 13 data centers,Â including the NAP of the Americas in Miami, the NAP of the Capital Region data fortress in Culpeper , Virginia and facilities in Silicon Valley, Dallas, Amsterdam and Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Qwiki fascinates me, not only because it says “Monti- s ello”, and I’ve been playing with it for the past few weeks since it was in alpha. Now it’s open to the public and I can embed it here (finally!).
… Astonishingly, Qwiki picks up that the City of Charlottesville and County of Albemarle are separate entities , something that takes quite some time to realize for newcomers.
…Did you know that Albemarle has 4 square miles of water?
This mobility problem will be with us for years .
