A common business technology (BT) agenda request that we receive from our infrastructure and operations (I&O) clients is baseline adoption data for hosted private cloud to inform their cloud strategies and compare their progress with that of their peers. In 2014, adoption seemed to level off for hosted private cloud, but factors such as "cloudwashing" and increased market awareness of what a true hosted private cloud is paint a more accurate picture of adoption than in past years. This report showcases the following North American and European hosted private cloud data: 1) adoption relative to other deployment types; 2) adoption by country; 3) adoption relative to previous years; 4) top concerns; 5) top drivers; and 6) the most popular vendors for hosted private cloud. The data in this report is powered by Forrester's Business Technographics® Global Infrastructure Survey, 2014, which was fielded to 2,255 business and technology decision-makers in North America and Europe. I&O executives should use this data — along with Forrester's cloud computing playbook — to discover, plan, act, and optimize their hosted private cloud initiatives.
