Among our customers, private cloud adoption is increasing significantly. No surprise.In a survey we ran in August 2011, we found that 37% of customers already have a private cloud. One year prior in August 2010, 29% said they had a private cloud. This is a 28% increase in just one year.OPTIONAL:This is based a survey of approximately 300 customers conducted by the IOUG, the Independent Oracle Users’ Group. Because these are IOUG members, they are primarily Oracle customers. There is a large percentage of large companies (approximately 1/3 are from organizations larger than 10,000 people, while 17% are from organization less than 100 people). The majority of respondents are from IT, with a small number of business folks. The level of the respondent varies from IT admin to CIO/CTO.Virtualized infrastructure for productivity applications – challenged with virtualization of large, mission critical applicationImproved Server Utilization, made infrastructure team hero’sNo real impact for application development teams, Additional complexity for Application OperationsPublic PaaS setting the direction for Internal IT Private PaaS the next frontier
Exalogic gives you an opportunity to rethink the app lifecycleImagine that you plan the app first, then the infrastructure adapts itself – not the other way aroundGet a predefined configuration from Oracle or create one yourself, deploy with one click and it’s running in productionThis would completely change the old deployment / upgrade / patch lifecycle
One last important finding:Our customers are adopting Platform-as-a-Service significantly more than Infrastructure-as-a-Service. As you can see from this graphic, the platform level services, such as app server, database, identity, are more prevalent than the infrastructure level services, such as raw compute, storage and dev/test (which is IaaS because it’s primarily the use of virtualization technology to share dev/test hardware).The rise of PaaS is something that others in the industry have also observed, but this survey really gives us quantitative evidence of this. When you think about the reasons for this, it makes sense. PaaS provides higher level of standardization, component re-use and sharing, with lower levels of heterogeneity, complexity and cost. PaaS also enables faster development, because developers can leverage the platform instead of re-inventing the wheel themselves. In contrast, IaaS enables sharing of hardware and some cost savings in hardware, power, cooling and data center space, but it does nothing to minimize high cost of managing the heterogeneous, complex and brittle environments above the hardware layer.
