Understanding the enterprise cloud environment

Cloud computing remains the hottest topic among enterprise information technology influencers. However, much of the conversation centers on how large-scale adoption might unfold rather than if it will happen. Indeed, businesses across a myriad of industries are harnessing the power of the cloud, rolling out lightweight, self-contained applications that streamline internal processes, facilitate scalability and ultimately bolster the bottom line. In November of last year, the International Data Group asked more than 900 IT leaders from around the world to characterize their involvement with the technology. Approximately 70 percent attested to hosting one or more applications in the cloud, while over half of those without such assets said they planned to adopt cloud-based networking features within the next 12 months. This data, along with other corroborating insights, signify that the cloud is rapidly becoming the standard among enterprises of all kinds.

While cloud adoption increases uniformly throughout multiple industries, deployment methods vary as the market grows and solutions diversify. Prospective adopters and long-time users have latched on to a number of key cloud computing trends, taking the technology to new places.


Traditional cloud configurations utilize virtual server structures, which mirror those found in on-premises solutions. While effective, this file storage method leaves something to be desired when it comes efficiency and mobility. Consequently, many organizations are opting for

Amazon Web Services has for years been the go-to solution for organizations looking to launch containers. However, other vendors are entering the fray. Earlier this month, Microsoft acquired the respected container-centric cloud startup Deis for an undisclosed amount, according to a company blog post. This move, combined with the recent public release of the Azure Container Service, puts the technology giant in position to challenge Amazon for container superiority, TechCrunch reported. This of course opens up new opportunities for enterprises looking to invest in these niche solutions.

"Organizations are expected to spend more than $122 billion on cloud infrastructure this year."


Organizations have long taken the one-stop-shop approach to working with IT vendors, hiring different firms to manage internal systems at a one-to-one ratio. However, this strategy is quickly falling out of fashion among cloud adopters, paving the way for more complex yet cost-effective arrangements in which multiple vendors support a single cloud-based system. This methodology, called multicloud, allows users to more effectively control costs and design

Just how popular is this approach? In January, the Software-as-a-Service-based cloud firm RightScale surveyed more than 1,000 IT professionals from organizations across the globe. Approximately 85 percent of these technical specialists indicated that their firms had adopted the multicloud strategy.


Last year, the market for enterprise

Major cloud vendors like AWS, Microsoft and Google have prepared for this shift by adjusting their pricing structures, ZDNet reported. All three have reduced fees for container-centered offerings, precipitating a market-wide drop of 14 percent for such services over the last 12 months. Costs for virtual machines fell 5 percent during the same span. Again, this development works out in favor of prospective adopters looking for ways to embrace cloud technology without incurring major expenses.

Organizations are expected to spend more than $122 billion on cloud infrastructure this year, according to research from the International Data Corporation. The trends mentioned above will certainly guide that immense cashflow, as businesses from every corner of the globe trade in on-premises solutions for cloud-based alternatives.
