Market Overview: Public IaaS Clouds, Q4 2011, Part 1
How To Sift Through The Cloud Washing And Uncover True Value
November 7, 2011
Why Read This Report
While cloud computing is still in the early adopter phase, you're under executive pressure to develop a cloud strategy. And it's up to you to sort through the cloud washing and not only understand the basic economics and capabilities but also the security risks involved. And if that isn't challenging enough, it seems your developers are circumventing I&O and going to the public cloud without thoroughly vetting solutions. Forrester examines the public IaaS cloud space in a series of reports divided into: 1) an overview of the current market state; 2) an examination of the public IaaS cloud vendor landscape; and 3) a review of cloud platforms. This report describes why I&O professionals can't ignore the trend and summarizes the current state of the market regarding security, management, networking, storage, geographic reach, and price structures to help sift through speculation and vendor pitches.
