IBM WebSphere Portal in Real-World Cloud Computing

Since IBM and Amazon announced the avalability of WebSphere Portal Server and Lotus Web Content Management Standard Edition on the Amazon EC2 Web Service, I used to wonder whether there are any real-world customers using it. But now it seems from the news, that an investment firm Quintana Capital Group converted its Web site and IBM WebSphere-powered portal to Amazon's EC2. Here is the URL http://www.qeplp.com/wps/portal/ of their portal powered by IBM WebSphere Portal on the Amazon EC2.


Also you can run a traceroute to confirm that it's hosted in EC2.
