More than half (61%) of developers report at least some of their IT resources will move to the public cloud within the next year, according to a new survey from Evans Data.
However, over 87 percent say half or less of their resources will move, according to the survey of over 400 software developers. The survey indicates a hybrid cloud will be appealing.
“The hybrid Cloud presents a very reasonable model, which is easy to assimilate and provides a gateway to Cloud computing without the need to commit all resources or surrender all control and security to an outside vendor “said Janel Garvin, CEO of Evans Data.
“Security and government compliance are primary obstacles to public Cloud adoption, but a hybrid model allows for selective implementation so these barriers can be avoided.”
Highlights from the survey include:
- MySQL is the preferred database for use in the public cloud cited by over 55% of the developers
- Almost two-thirds (64%) expect their cloud apps to extend to mobile devices
- VMWare is the favorite hypervisor vendor or use in a virtualized private cloud (28.6%) followed by Microsoft and IBM
