Organizations are still a ways out from adopting a public cloud computing model that is worry-free and cost-efficient.
According to IDG’s 2016 Cloud Computing Survey, the average enterprise has 26% of its IT environment in a private cloud and 13% in the public cloud. Small and medium sized businesses have 21% in a private cloud and 17% in the public cloud.
While public cloud adoption is increasing, it’s still in the early stages. The improved security measures implemented by cloud providers is accelerating the move to a cloud computing model, even for critical IT services.
