Over 57% Organizations Have No Hybrid Cloud Strategy, Says VMTurbo

Verizon and VMTurbo are conducting a survey series collectively that will establish a baseline for organizations and a framework that proceed to the hybrid cloud over next three years.

Hybrid cloudGreatResponder.com  The research shows that 57% organizations don’t have any kind of multi cloud strategy. It is also revealed that 35% of the organizations don’t have a private cloud strategy while 28% organizations are lacking in public cloud strategy.

Even though the hybrid cloud is considered one of the increasing trend within the cloud industry, the research proposes that the clatter at the back of multi-cloud strategies is coming from either a fewer number of clients, or from the seller organizations themselves. Other than those who can be considered in the functional multi-cloud Owner group that only embodies 10.4% of the respondents, approximately half were using a two-cloud model, and merely over a quarter were using a three-cloud model. The multi-cloud strategy was preferred by bigger organizations in common.

“A lack of cloud strategy doesn’t mean an organization has studied and rejected the idea of the cloud; it means it has given adoption little or no thought at all,” said Charles Crouchman, CTO of VMTurbo. “As organizations make the journey from on-premise IT, to public and private clouds, and finally to multi- and hybrid clouds, it’s essential that they address this.”

He further said “Having a cloud strategy means understanding the precise costs and challenges that the cloud will introduce, knowing how to make the cloud approach work for you, and choosing technologies that will supplement cloud adoption. For instance, by automating workload allocation so that services are always provided with the best performance for the best cost.”

With no strategy, businesses will be reproving themselves to higher than estimated costs, and a cloud that never performs to its full prospective.

The survey also verified the total cost of possession is not completely understood within the businesses itself, and it reduced more in smaller organizations. Small and medium enterprises are developing to make private cloud environment estimated their budget to be in the region of $150,000 (average of all respondents), whereas the total bill for those who have already completed such projects averaged at $898,508.

The statistics support the thoughts of a number of organizations who think there should be more of a business case behind the transition to the cloud instead of just dropping CAPEX and OPEX.
