Another survey that shows vendors think you're stupid

And don't get me started on the use of 'first' with 'annual'

It's time for a pop quiz. The press release reads:

A data center industry index, the result of a survey by (Vendor X) reveals that cost savings and scalability are prompting more data center owners and c-suite technology executives to consider (this type of) data center solutions. 

The first "Mission Critical Annual Index" indicates that 85 percent of participants would consider (this type of) solution in building their next data center, with most of that group -- just over 75 percent -- citing cost and flexibility as key drivers in that decision.

Now what type of "solutions" do you suppose Vendor X sells?

(I see all of you have your hands raised.)

Yes, of course, it's this type.
