Orange de olho no Brasil
Orange Takes On IT Departments, Moves On India, Brazil | Telecom Ramblings
The idea is that with the rise of cloud computing and a proliferation of IT resources being offered as a service, will corporations even need an IT department? Well, Orange Business isn’t exactly a neutral observer here, as they do big business in IT and network outsourcing, and their chief competitor is often that same internal IT department that prefers to in-source and they clearly would do well if it became an endangered species.And back in New York, Orange Business’s Trading Solutions division has selected Equinix’s NY4 IBX in Secaucus. Not for US markets, but rather for trading partners in Brazil. Not coincidentally, Equinix recently bought into Brazil’s ALOG via a joint venture, whose facilities in Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Tamboré the Trading Solutions division also connects to.

Trading Solutions’ dedicated network, TCSnet, has been available in Sao Paulo since last year where it offers connectivity to the BM&FBOVESPA exchange, as well as trading firms and brokers in the Brazilian market. Trading Solutions wanted a strategic point of presence (PoP) in the New York area and chose Equinix’s International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) NY4 data center in Secaucus, NJ, for its extensive financial services ecosystem and the ability to provide connectivity to Brazilian customers within 24 to 48 hours.
Jerry Mattiace, vice president, North America, Orange Business Services – Trading Solutions, said: “Our customers in the New York area want to trade directly with firms in Brazil and have direct access to BM&FBOVESPA...."
John Knuff, general manager global financial services at Equinix, said: “Our expanding financial ecosystem connects exchanges, sell-side and buy-side firms, as well as market data and service providers to new opportunities in markets around the world. Trading Solutions’ Brazil link to NY4 represents another compelling option for the financial community inside Equinix, as well as for participants in Brazil.”
Mattiace added: “Trading Solutions differentiated itself early on from competitors by creating innovative networks in some of the world’s most exotic locations, and what are now emerging markets. Brazil is growing rapidly now that BM&FBOVESPA enables high frequency trading capabilities.”

A questão do tópico seria mais ou menos nessa direção:
Will we have turned off all of our IT equipment in 10 years' time? It is looking increasingly likely that some organizations won't run any internal systems at all in their own enterprise data centers, but will instead source everything from the cloud.
Banks, manufacturers, utilities and professional services companies have the most pronounced concerns when it comes to adoption of cloud services.
The concerns of large companies are not markedly different from those of SMBs. Those concerns are security, data governance, loss of control, SLAs, use of the public internet, lack of standards and missing industry road maps. Yet despite these concerns among Multi-National Companies, adoption of Cloud computing is up 61% from last year. APAC countries are leading, with the US and Europe lagging behind.
SMBs are viewed as being key targets for cloud because they are unlikely to have large existing infrastructure investments(Microsoft conducted its Global SMB Cloud Adoption Study which found that within three years, 43% of workloads will become paid cloud services, but 28% will remain on-premises, and 29% will be free or bundled with other services). Multi-nationals, however, have large data centers and significant IT assets.
