I already pointed out in my comment on the cloud marketplace from the Deutsche Börse, that this is not the first marketplace of its kind and Reuven Cohen in 2010 was much earlier with SpotCloud. After I read across the press, I have to say that the “Deutsche Börse Cloud Exchange” want to be something it is not: the industry-first, vendor-neutral cloud marketplace for cloud infrastructure resources.
Three years too late!
The marketing of the Deutsche Börse seems to want all the credit which does not belong to them. As interesting the idea of the Deutsche Börse Cloud Exchange (DBCE) is, one should stick to the truth. Because the marketplace is by far not the industry-first and also vendor-neutral marketplace for cloud infrastructure resources. This crown belongs to Reuven Cohen, who has launched SpotCloud in 2010. In the top SpotCloud has been managed 3,200 suppliers and 100,000 servers worldwide so far.
@ReneBuest Totally, we had 3200 service providers using everyone Virt/IaaS platform. 100k in servers.

So dear marketing of the Deutsche Börse, good idea/ solution, but please stick to the truth. Even the NSA is no longer able to hide something from the public.
