Customers no longer question cloud computing as a viable technology choice. And in a growing number of enterprises, cloud is now the first choice. But cloud isn't a single technology. It's composed of many categories, each with an extensive list of technologies. In Forrester's 2014 TechRadar reports on cloud computing, we only profiled private cloud and hosted private cloud as technologies with moderate to minimal success. In practice, the private cloud market consists of nine core technologies, each with different success trajectories, values, and maturity levels. This report marks the first TechRadar focused exclusively on the private cloud market and its technologies to provide a deeper look at this segment of the cloud market. This TechRadar assesses the maturity of these nine core private cloud service categories. Infrastructure and operations (I&O) pros should use this research to refine their private cloud services strategic road map.
