And?

It's what IBM consider their cloud offering (having brought Sortlayer...) and there's not much left in the IBM hardware stable these days to provide an alternative server platform for most enterprises.

Considering that it's likely to be an upgrade on traditional IBM "legacy" hosting, the government "should" be getting a better deal. No, I'm not going to place a bet on that....
