  • Cloud Computing Trends Trend 2: New TechnologiesBusiness and Enterprise data center services are always changing with theadoption of new technologies. The technologies with the highest levels ofadoption in today’s corporate data centers are: 1) Virtual Processing (72.9%) 2) Web Applications (70.4%) 3) Automation (54.8%) 4) Cluster Computing (50.0%) 5) Cloud Computing (14.9%)Surprisingly, there is a significant rejection of Cloud Computing at this point(only 14.9% of all data centers have adopted), yet this technology has beenconsidered by an additional 46.3%, but never implemented.These are very interesting figures as Cloud Computing gets all the press andhype but the reality is the adoption rate among corporate companies still lagsmore traditional and proven technologies. 4© 2011 Excipio Consulting, LLC.

The Clients use the service providers virtual infrastructure and platforms as their cloud computing solutions. Custom (Dedicated) Public Cloud: Customers can use provider previously developed cloud services for other customers and then leverage this for their cloud environment.
