Joining the dots: Equipping the hybrid cloud to meet the needs of the digital Enterprise

Love it or loathe it (and I personally love it) the cloud is having a big impact on enterprise IT, but I don’t think I realised just how big until I got to see the results of a comprehensive survey looking at exactly what was going on in the enterprise cloud market

Hybrid Cloud

Conducted on behalf of Nutanix by Vanson Bourne, a leading specialist in high tech research, this survey gathered some intriguing data from over 2,300 companies around the world. Not least the finding that over a third (36%) of enterprise workloads are up and running in the cloud already with the majority of those taking part expecting this figure to rise rapidly to over half of all workloads by 2020

More than that, companies are increasingly looking to deploy apps across a blend of private and public clouds. Indeed, some 18% are already mixing clouds and that number is expected to more than double in the next two years to make this kind of hybrid cloud approach the most popular way of implementing IT by quite a wide margin

Hybrid just makes sense:

The reasons behind this move to a mix of clouds aren’t hard to fathom. In essence, companies are both switching on to the benefits of the public cloud – on-demand scalability, pay per use economics and so on – and, at the same time, becoming wise to the fact that not all clouds are the same. Indeed, putting all their application eggs in one basket might be counterproductive

The age-old traps of vendor and platform lock-in, it seems, are still there waiting for the unwary and, as a result, many are now taking a much more application-centric approach to IT. As such, they are choosing the best home for each app they deploy – be that a public or private cloud – rather than standardising on just one and making their apps fit

Moreover, this fear of lock-in isn’t the only reason a growing number of companies to want to spread workloads across clouds. Many would also like to be able to move workloads between clouds for both technical and financial reasons, leading to app mobility being ranked well above cost and security concerns by those taking part in the Vanson Bourne survey
