Google Takes To The Skies With Virgin America
Virgin America, the up-and-coming airline, made the move to Google and Google Apps in 2010. The move to the cloud put the airline's 1,700 North America-based employees on Google Apps for Gmail, Calendar, Docs and Google Talk. While not a huge migration, the move is expected to cut Virgin America's e-mail system spending by about half on an annual basis while also saving them more than 18 terabytes of space by moving to the cloud. Virgin America's Google Apps cloud computing deployment was spearheaded by SADA Systems, a North Hollywood solution provider.
