Hurd Acquisition Target Number Five: Terremark
No acquisition hit list is complete without a compelling cloud target. In our view the best fit for Oracle is Terremark.
Terremark's vCloud Express provides the enterprises that Oracle has traditionally served with costly IT infrastructure with flexible, high performance computing on a per usage basis. With computing resources that costs as little as .036 cents per hour for enterprise-level computing resources, vCloud would lay to rest once and for all Oracle's reputation as the company with the highest priced enterprise IT products on the planet.
The biggest game changer, though, is that vCloud is virtualized by VMware. That secret VMware sauce is what made Terremark VMware's service provider of the year. It's also what makes the company such a compelling cloud buy for Oracle.
