Neovise, an independent IT research firm focused on cloud computing, has published a research report which evaluates the use of public, private and hybrid cloud computing by U.S. based organizations. The report is sponsored by Virtustream and the report highlights when, why and how these three fundamental IaaS deployment models are used.
Some of the other key findings described in the report include:
- On the great debate about commodity versus enterprise-class infrastructure components, 45% of public cloud users felt that the quality or grade of these components is highly important. Another 34% felt quality of infrastructure components was somewhat important.
- Based on economic analysis, one of the greatest potential benefits of cloud computing stems from elasticity. Yet less than half of cloud users have deployed elastic applications of any kind.
- Off-premise private clouds, such as hosted private clouds and virtual private clouds, are gaining a substantial following.
- Organizations with more than 1,000 employees are 46% more likely than smaller organizations to use hybrid clouds.
- Cloud users stand to benefit much more from cloud computing as the maturity of their usage increases, particularly with hybrid clouds.
