Thomson Reuters Virtualizes – Cloud Next!


Christopher Crowhurst, Thomson Reuters’s vice president and chief architect for infrastructure was interviewed for an article in The Industry Standard regarding his plans to implement storage and server virtualization on a global level. With 20,000 servers and over 6.5 petabytes of storage today, Thomson Reuters is a great candidate for virtualization.  One of his coments in this article points to an opening for cloud computing in their enterprise architecture moving forward:

“I think what we’ll eventually start doing is extend this into a private cloud and move to do some self-provisioning for our business units as we get more confident with the management tools in these virtual environments.”

This is a great opportunity for cloud vendors and services providers.
