Public cloud lag
Interesting that  five-point increase in the percentage of respondents who are phasing out their public cloud use. I wonder if that is truly a trend or just a temporary hiccup. I would suspect that small IT shops could find some value in cloud business continuity and DR. Or am I missing something?

Great context on these numbers, Art. Readers, do these numbers ring true with your private cloud progress?
