Developers Will Focus on Hybrid Cloud in 2010, Survey Says
More than 60 percent of IT shops polled plan to adopt a hybrid cloud model over the coming year, according to survey of application developers by Evans Data.According to a recent Evans Data survey, more than 60 percent of IT shops polled plan to adopt a hybrid cloud model over the coming year. Results of the Evans Data Cloud Development Survey, released Jan. 12, show that 61 percent of the more than 400 developers polled said some portion of their organizations' IT resources "will move to the public cloud within the next year," Evans Data said. "However, over 87 percent [of the developers] say half or less then half of their resources will move ... As a result, the hybrid cloud is set to dominate the coming IT landscape."
The statement continued:
"The hybrid Cloud presents a very reasonable model, which is easy to assimilate and provides a gateway to Cloud computing without the need to commit all resources or surrender all control and security to an outside vendor," said Janel Garvin, CEO of Evans Data. "Security and government compliance are primary obstacles to public cloud adoption, but a hybrid model allows for selective implementation so these barriers can be avoided."
