Todayâs cloud computing landscape has no clear leading vendor; but rather is a mosaic of services. While the commercial opportunities are enormous, open source clouds are beginning to dominate the private cloud side of the market.
These are the findings of a new survey of 651 companies, conducted by RightScale, Inc. Among the 64% of respondents who plan to include a private cloud option as part of their cloud portfolio, open source private cloud solutions are taking the lead. The largest share of cloud adopters, 41%, plan to use only open source-based private cloud
When people think of Cloud Computing, the service that most readily comes to mind is Infrastructure. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) refers to the infrastructure, storage and network services that are available from most cloud vendors.
IaaS is a completely separate offering and market from the other services provided by cloud vendors such as Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) or any of the many other XaaS offerings and is often confused with datacenter outsourcing or a hosting solution. And though vendors appear to offer very similar offerings, all cloud vendors are not created equally.
So, with so
Yes, cloud adoption in Europe hasn’t happened at as fast as in the US. But despite the difficult economy, there’s considerable interest in cloud on the continent. The market bears watching and here are 5 things you should know about it. Most of what we hear about cloud computing in Europe tends to fixate on the notion that cloud adoption there lags that in the US by one to three years.That may be generally true, but it’s still a simplistic analysis. Despite the economic mess over there, IDC predicts a 30 percent compound annual growth rate for cloud deployments between 2011 and 2016 compared to an 18.5 percent CAGR for the US during that period.

Since many organizations and professionals are shifting towards cloud computing, it is expected that they will need assistance as they adopt the new system. A cloud computing professional certificate proves that you have the necessary skills to assist a cloud computing user. This certification is also a proof that you are dedicated to continually improving your skills as an IT professional. This will increase your motivation, commitment, and responsibility
Recent research from Gartner reveals that the cloud computing sector has many over-hyped terms. But that doesn't mean that the sector is all hype. The report points out that the cloud sector includes a range of different terms and technologies, many of which are at different stages in the technology life cycle. (These stages are the trigger, hype, disillusionment, enlightenment, and productivity, says the Network World report.)
Among the cloud technologies that are overhyped are big data and platform as a service (PaaS)
There has been no shortage of assumptions made and confusion about cloud computing, along with boatloads of conventional wisdom. But the rise of cloud brings with it some so far unanswerable questions.Here are just seven of the great unsolved mysteries that are accompanying the great cloud computing migration of the 2010s:1) Who really pays for cloud? This is a tangle in and of itself. In surveys I have seen and conducted, it’s all over the place. IT departments pay for a lot of it, and a lot of it is put on corporate credit cards. As a result, the costs get hidden or buried within corporate budgets. Another issue — when the holder of the corporate
Like the early days of the California Gold Rush, the promise of easy riches has spurred providers from all over the IT industry to cash in on cloud computing trends and launch cloud services. It is evident, however, that cloud adoption and usage remains lower than many providers anticipated in their business plans. Only 15% of U.S. businesses currently use cloud infrastructure services, and even then, they only use them intermittently, according to Frost & Sullivan's 2012 survey of IT decision-makers. More discouraging for providers: A large percentage of the market has remained resistant to current marketing messages about the cloud's allure.
Today’s modern IT environment is no longer asking “What is cloud computing?” Rather, they are actively looking to enter the cloud space with an intelligent and flexible platform. Cloud computing has come a long way and is now a solid means of data delivery over the Wide Area Network. One of the most important aspects of working with cloud computing is understanding the numerous variables which come with the technology. Knowing the difference between public, hybrid, and private cloud designs is important when business goals need to be aligned with an IT project.
An intelligent cloud orchestrator will have a solid understanding of the
For all the freedom promised by cloud computing, businesses may be really looking at less choice and more constraint than ever before. Whether that happens is the technology industry’s next great battleground.On one side are large incumbent tech providers like Oracle and Hewlett-Packard, who already have broad portfolios of technology and deep corporate relationships after years of selling products. On the other are younger companies, whose products and services were built for cloud computing and thus may offer more innovative approaches.At its recent annual customer showcase, Oracle’s chief executive, Larry Ellison, made much of his company’
