Actually, I do know Deutsche Boerse... That aside, this actually sounds smart. Now the smaller organisations that have their own cloud/super computers that they use for projects can rent them out when not in use instead of just eating electricity. It's a way to get back the investment.
Only issue I forsee is when they want that space back, but the renter isn't ready to relinquish control. There has to be some sort of cloud buffer and that may create a very large cost overhead and doom the entire project.
Maybe Deutsche Boerse servers would be that buffer between companies. That would allow for a distributed load across multiple available servers, and lessen the impact on end users and providers. They do have a lot of server power already, don't they?
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
