Dispelling the Vapor Around Cloud Computing: Drivers, Barriers and Considerations for Public and Private Cloud Adoption

Dispelling the Vapor Around Cloud Computing: Drivers, Barriers and Considerations for Public and Private Cloud Adoption

Cover

Cloud computing is an emerging style of computing in which applications, data and IT resources are provided to users as services delivered over the network. It is an infrastructure management methodology - a way of managing large numbers of highly virtualized resources, which can reside in multiple locations, so that they resemble a single large resource that can be used to deliver services.

To better understand the drivers, barriers, and considerations that are influencing the adoption of cloud computing, IBM conducted a survey in June and July of 2009 of 1,090 IT and line-of-business decision makers around the world. The purpose of this white paper is to share the survey findings, and to provide the IBM point of view regarding key steps and considerations for cloud adoption.
