Verizon 2016 State Of The Enterprise Cloud Market: Services Can Fuel The Channel
Hybrid Cloud Has Gone Mainstream
The hybrid cloud approach is a mix of models, including on-premises and public and private cloud. Verizon said this model is now the norm, especially for large organizations.
The report noted that 53 percent of enterprises use two to four cloud providers as a part of their cloud strategy, and 50 percent of respondents use a blend of private, public and traditional IT resources. While 48 percent of enterprises said they have workload portability between private and public cloud resources, solution providers can be instrumental in helping to make this process more seamless for organizations, Shuttleworth said.
