Global Crossing hones government sector focus


>>Connected Planet: Are you seeing opportunities in cloud services?

Sutton: Vivek Kundra, who is the chief information officer for the federal government, included cloud services in his 25-point plan. He said [agencies] should be spending 25% of their budget on the cloud. That’s good for us.

We have partnerships with Savvis, Equinix and Carpathia to use their data centers to host services. On smaller projects, like the hosted interactive voice response system we did for the U.S. Census, we have some capacity in our own points of presence.
