  • Analyst Report
  • PDF 822 kb
  • 13 pages

Cloud computing is rapidly entering a new phase—one destined to prove far more transformative and disruptive than the initial phase of cloud deployment. Cloud is driving a comprehensive transformation of digital assets in organizations of all stripes as IT decision-makers begin to view the emerging cloud construct as a proxy for the transformation of IT itself. Every organization is unique, with specific preferences and requirements for security and privacy that factor into what constitutes their right mix of private and public cloud. The uniqueness of organizations notwithstanding, this 451 Research study reveals what the right mix of private and public cloud resources might be for many enterprises over the next two years. This mix is an average of approximately 74% private and 26% public, with private cloud defined as both on-premises private cloud and third-party-hosted private cloud.
