The name 'Cloud42' spawns from the geek pop-culture concept that the number 42, revealed in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy is the answer to life, the universe and everything. The name also reflects the symbiotic relationship between ourselves and IBM - the origins of both sit on their respective 42nd parallel; Hobart, Tasmania and Endicott, New York State.
