    Yes. No one else wanted to touch that.

    Actually, they are moving from on-site servers, to Google cloud in Asia.

    "The announcement today was made by Pythian, an IT company that provides a number of services — including helping organizations migrate from on-premise data centers to the cloud."

    Thanks for additional clarity. The key point is that BlackBerry no longer hosts Emtek's BBM.

    I am really surprised this move has not raised any concerns on the forum.
