WOLF Weekly Cloud Sum-up, May 25, 2012

We're too nervous about moving to cloud: are we making everything too complicated? Numbers thrown up from industry surveys continue to suggest, as in the case of the one conducted by hosted services provider Rise recently, that organisations are more than willing to embrace the cloud. Apparently some two thirds said that they were looking to migrate to the cloud within a two year timeframe.

Perhaps we need to stop thinking in terms of X-as-a-Service models, leave behind the whole public/private deployment debate, and as cloud evangelists admit that 'the cloud' will be something entirely different for each and every organisation migrating to it. Read More





SMB cloud market has room to grow

In an effort to improve data quality and management, organizations are leveraging cloud computing and hosting services with increasing frequency. According to a report by J.D. Power and Associates, roughly 18 percent of business data customers are using remote services, up from only 12 percent in 2011. "While traditional data services offer a suite, or package of services, employing cloud-based services like [Software-as-a-Service] provides businesses the opportunity to view data as a commoditized service, where the differentiation among providers is primarily based on price, bandwidth and reliability," J.D. Power and Associates telecommunications director Frank Perazzini said.

Interest in cloud computing peaking

As far as buzz words in technology go, cloud computing has been one of the most hyped phrases of the past couple of years. According to Google Insights, this over-exposure may have caused interest in cloud computing to peak, Forbes reported. "The level of web search interest is sitting roughly at July 2010 levels and dropping fast," according to the news source. "Although its forecast does show an uptick for the coming months, which to me seems unlikely given the trend over the last year. Keep in mind this particular stat says nothing of revenue or venture funding, it purely shows web search interest. But it’s an interesting metric none the less."

Networking as the Next Great Opportunity for the Channel in the Cloud

The history of computing can be defined by the movement of bottleneck around the data center. Every time a bottleneck appears a massive opportunity emerges for the channel. The next great bottleneck is going to be the networking layer in the cloud. A recent survey of 1,300 IT professionals conducted by Cisco finds that the one of biggest inhibitors to cloud computing adoption is the readiness of the network According to Inbar Lasser-Raab, senior marketing director for the Cisco Services Routing Technology Group, a majority of organizations that intend to make use of cloud computing on any serious level are probably going to wind up upgrading their networks, which given the number of IT professionals that said they would be making more significant use of the cloud in 2012 may be happening sooner than later.
