Analyzing the Rate of Migration to Cloud Technologies
The Cloud. The movement of all things tech-related to the cloud has become an ever-present topic of discussion in the last few years. While â€śthe overarching concept of delivering computing resources through a global network is rooted in the sixtiesâ€ť (source), the cloud computing concept has experienced explosive growth in the last decade as companies like Salesforce.com have made enterprise application delivery via a website a reality. Here at Aryaka, we specialize in helping solve the challenge of unreliable performance of public internet experienced by end users as a result of enterprise applications and services moving to the cloud.
As such, we took a special interest in a recent survey done by PC Connection that analyzed how far along in the process of adopting cloud technology a sampling of 500 different organizations were as of 2013. The results are quite interesting, revealing that while only about 1 in 5 organizations have already moved some of their applications to the cloud, 50% of organizations labeled themselves as â€śon the wayâ€ť to moving applications to the cloud as they are in various stages of evaluating vendors, making plans, etc. Not surprising, a chief motivation for migration to the cloud is disaster recovery, while ensuring proper security is listed as the most significant challenge.
