In this mid year, Vanson Bourne contacted research on Nutanix's behalf to gain insight into the business plans for adopting hybrid, private and public clouds. The main responded base spanned various industries, geographies and business sizes across the world.
Information technology decision makers were required to provide information about their cloud challenges and where and when they plan to run their business applications. Also, they were required to explain how their company cloud initiatives performed compared to other information technology priorities and projects.
According to the research, information technology teams should know that workloads with predictable features and characteristics like the storage input-output requirements, bandwidth consumption, and the number of concurrent users often run cost-effectively in the private cloud.
It is also easy to forecast the consumption requirements of the predictable workloads and plan on how to add resources as required to accommodate the expected growth. On the other hand, the unpredictable workloads like those that are seasonal or those supporting customer services, often perform better in the public cloud. This is why a public cloud is in the position to provide greater information technology resource elasticity to satisfy the dynamic application needs.
Concerning agility and the digital transformation, companies should know that runtime environments for business applications change constantly. This means there is a need for excellent orchestration and the application of mobility across all the cloud environments so as to move all the applications to the right cloud.
