iT1 Vice President Wil Herrera said he expects continued overall growth in cloud in the coming year. Specific areas he expects to grow?

’Some of my disaster recovery workloads out there, some of the backups,’ he said.

’I’m hearing some really cool stuff that’s wrapped around developments and startups and massive scale, and then trying to figure out how to apply that to customers that have been in business for 20 years that aren’t scaling like that,’ said Wally Nehls, CIO consultant at ENS Group.

TekLinks Vice President Dave Powell said, ’We continue to think applications are what’s driving everything.’

Powell said the cloud is the answer to the dilemma of how to serve customers their applications when they are no longer tied to a desktop.
