Gartner is predicting that by 2017 half of enterprises will have moved to hybrid clouds. Yes, they’re serious.
How things change. Only three years ago, the research giant found that most businesses still didn’t get the cloud. They looked at it as a way to secure the virtual data center. We’d now call that a private cloud
That was then. This is now.
Today, Gartner vice president and distinguished analyst Thomas J. Bittman, states that Nearly half of large enterprises polled have deployed a private cloud service, and only 11% have no plans to do so through 2014.” OK, unless you’ve been living under a rock you knew that. The cloud, like it or lump it, is IT’s future.
