Public versus private cloud computing is one of the hottest topics in IT at the moment, but there’s still a lot of confusion around its adoption—which has been higher than anyone expected. Steve Brasen from Enterprise Management Associates leads a podcast discussion with Denis Martin and Brooks Borcherding from NaviSite about the scope of cloud computing and its transition.
SB: “Today we’ll be talking about public versus private cloud computing, certainly a hot topic and one around which there is a lot of confusion. I don’t seem to be able to pick up a trade magazine these days without seeing repeated references to cloud. According to EMA primary research, in fact, 11% of all businesses have already adopted some form of cloud services in order to achieve their business objectives. This is very fast adoption we’re seeing, for what is reasonably considered a fairly new technology. We’ve projected this to be somewhere between a $40-50 billion dollar industry by the end of 2011, and growing roughly to $160 billion by 2015.”
