On July 22, Shanda announced Grand Cloud’s open beta test in Shanghai. The platform’s products went online officially and Shanda has become the first cloud service provider offering a full product line in China.
“The Grand Cloud has been developed for ten years,” said Shanda’s CEO Chen Tianqiao, “Shanda’s development has always been based on cloud computing. We have created a new model by putting part of the program in our services and part in the users’. Though strictly speaking this is not cloud computing, we still believe Shanda has the gene of cloud computing since a very early time.”
“Now we have re-launched the platform after a technical transformation. We have invited cloud computing talents from Amazon and other companies to join our group.”
“We’d like to offer Grand Cloud and other platforms to innovative companies like us ten years ago. We hope they can achieve more success by stepping on our shoulders.”
