TechRepublic's infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) survey reveals what companies say about current and future plans for the cloud, top vendors, and the benefits of a public versus private or hybrid cloud solution.
It's no secret that the public cloud market has been growing like gangbusters. In fact, a recent Gartner study found spending on public cloud services is growing at more than 28% per year and private cloud spending is three times that of public cloud. That projects total cloud spending in 2016 to hit $240 billion. Cloud computing (both public and private) will pave the way forward for how companies will deploy new IT services.
It's been less than a year since Citrix submitted CloudStack for incubation at the Apache Software Foundation (ASF), but already the open source Infrastructure-as-a-Service platform has been named a Top-Level Project.
