Private Cloud and Hybrid Cloud are Gaining Popularity Because of the Spyware Actions by the Intelligence Agencies for cloud solutions in the SME Sector. Most of the General News type of websites has a Cloud Computing section now. The writers are human or bot or fake names, it is difficult to guess, but most wrote almost the same after Snowden Effect and Reveal of PRISM. At that time, we predicted – Its the SaaS that will be Rightly Killed.
The exact phenomenon is being reflected now – Private Cloud and Hybrid Cloud are gaining popularity, due to increased the requirements of security and transparency. We also got two consultancy requests in this month for guiding to use OpenStack Private Cloud and WordPress (expose). The feature which was less thought to be used, became a way of security offering.
Private Cloud and Hybrid Cloud : The Problem is on the Supply Side
Despite the good long-term prospects for cloud business, many vendors assess the current situation critically : Business with classical solutions are remaining for the medium term, leading to an important sales and earnings because their customers do not want to walk at the same pace in the cloud, such as the many providers expected.
The radical sweeping change is counterproductive here from some of the suppliers. In the crossfire of this criticism is especially Microsoft. The partners are complaining that, still important classical core business infrastructure reprehensible. If the customers do not want to change, service could not force them. “It seems Microsoft does not see the Customers aspect”, many resellers complain.
The middle class in spite of the great interest still has strong reservations about the cloud technology. A major reason for this is the lack of transparency in the cloud providers, such as the study found. What is concealed by many of the cloud providers is the fact that the customer has the responsibility to make their application cloud-ready available before placing them with a cloud service in conjunction.
Thus, the software developers must take into account any problem that may occur when using, for example an IaaS service. Upon failure of the cloud infrastructure, it is necessary that the application automatically detects this failure, immediately takes the action and switches to a spare infrastructure that is provided by the cloud provider. Thus, the responsibility for the failure of security both on the side of the providers as well as on the side of the user companies.
Cloud providers have to demonstrate their potential customers the strategic ways are much clearer, which are needed to be successful in the cloud. The always advertised cost advantages and flexibility gains of cloud services have been well documented in recent years. However, a comprehensive cloud service always requires a matched architecture that must be provided by the customer. Cloud provider should therefore aggressively communicate and solve these conditions.
Private Cloud and Hybrid Cloud : The Growth Potential
In-house infrastructure is still more common than the use of hosted servers, after all, 43 percent of companies use both hosted and in-house infrastructure. With time, numerous SMB will switch to hosted server and reinforce the double-digit of growth rate in this area.
In the future, the market for web presence will grow more slowly, as it is for hosting websites and which is increasingly being saturated. Business-class email services was the fastest growing cloud service in 2013. In the coming years, online business applications will be the fastest growing cloud service category.
