dallas-texas-usa-485x728North America is the world’s hottest market for Cloud Computing with a great diversity of providers and high adoption rates across many industries.

Telecom service providers are rapidly emerging as some of the advanced players in the field, with more clients and existing infrastructure to support flexible, good value Cloud services.

AT&T, Bell, Centurylink/Savvis, Telus, Rogers, Sprint and Verizon/Terremark are executing well-established plans to sell Cloud services and have expanded their investments in the field across the region.

From powering the Cloud of multinationals to the US Government, they are quickly establishing themselves as major players in the IT sphere. Many have also started rolling out Cloud services internationally, making their presence felt from Europe to Asia and Africa.
