Salesforce is taking it up a notch???

Last week we saw AWS VP James Hamilton talk about how they are hosting data, transactions, and raw compute for companies at a scale like we’ve never seen before.  Then he gave us a peek at how they do it, using custom servers, routers, power substations and software in order to achieve economies of scale and deliver incredible capabilities for pennies.  On Monday, announces they are going toinstall HP servers for customers to use.  So, Salesforce is going to kill it (profit wise) with big iron they are buying from HP.  Hmmm, I wonder.
