“To tell you the truth, building a cloud computing infrastructure was not an option for us but a mandatory step. Until recently, the quality of our IT service was unreliable. We had more than 90 different IT units spread around our main campus. When cloud technology came into play it enabled us for the first time to guarantee a level of quality throughout the university.”

- Professor Luiz Natal Rossi, IT Department Director, University of Sao Paulo

"I really like CloudStack because it does not demand to be the end-all-be-all for all my infrastructure. If I choose not to use virtualized networking, I can do that. If I choose not to use whatever storage is built into CloudStack, I can do that too. I can leverage all my existing investments and not get cornered into an evolving market that is very difficult to keep up with.”

- Peter Lopez, Systems Architect, Disney Interactive

“Everyone is looking for cloud services, but their needs are different. CloudPlatform gives them flexibility and choice without forcing them into a single cookie-cutter cloud service.”

- Ed Laczynski, VP of Cloud Strategy and Architecture, Datapipe



“Citrix is the only company that can provide all the capabilities we need to grow and expand our business.”

- Rich Wein, Chief Executive Officer, SSI

“I think that every government has to go to the cloud, a secure cloud, to reduce the cost. For the taxpayers we reduced the cost, our cost that has to be paid by the customers, in the past five years by about 10 million euros.”

- William Schmitt, CEO, KIVBF
