The article focuses on Cemaphore Systems, a San Mateo, California startup led by Tyrone Pike, an entrepreneur who has built an email management system that uses Google's massive infrastructure to guarantee companies the reliability that cannot be matched. Pike set out to create a backup system for corporate users of Microsoft Exchange that would take advantage of Google's giant server farms and its 99.99 percent uptime. Google's powerful weapon may well be the global infrastructure it has created in its effort to push into cloud computing.
