GE Tests Out Its Own Private 'Cloud'

General Electric's road to better data center efficiency is paved with virtualization. Now, as GE looks to build an internal or "private" cloud-computing environment, virtualization will once again play a key role.
GE has tens of thousands of servers in 10 primary data centers, and the number of servers in those facilities is growing 20 percent annually, amid increasing demand for IT resources from its business units and consolidation of servers from secondary data centers. GE has been investing in making its data centers run more efficiently.
