For example, Web Hosting Rackspace is the leader of service provider in cloud computing globally announce their new servery published in their media center web site, that is the most advantage of cloud computing is to save the time for the IT team, which is so understandable and good for IT people. On the other hand it is very useful for companies in this economic difficult time, where companies is saving money and increase their revenue. As the developers and engineers beside the companies are saving time and the money. Then the report mentioned the cost of buying and maintaining servers 40% are voiced by more respondents in both the US and UK now than as reported in the 2009 survey.
Fabio Torlini a VP at Cloud hosting, Rackspace, says: “Problems associated with having to manage and maintain servers are often readily solved by cloud and managed hosting services. In 2009, one-third (33 per cent) of businesses surveyed expected to outsource their in-house servers in the next two to five years. However, over two years later, the new study suggests that many mid-sized businesses are still chained to their servers, and may be spending unnecessary time and money on them.”
In the report I found another interesting part is that “The Bosses want more of IT for less”, is in’t that funny, as large percentage of North America and Europe IT decision makers said they they are under mounting pressure to support business growth and change 89%, up from 65% in 2009, improve flexibility 88%, compared with 66% and help drive internal innovation 88%, up from 61%. In addition, businesses are also facing demands from the board to reduce IT spending, according to 87% of respondents up from 65% in 2009.
