When we set out to build our software for the cloud, like many companies we had a choice. We could not just build the software, but we could also build data centers to run the software. And the thought of trying to do that on our own really made no sense. That's just not what we're good at. The idea that we could partner with someone who's extraordinary at that, who has the best security around, who can make sure uptime is unmatched, who can put data centers anywhere in the world, we view it as a huge competitive advantage."
