2012 has been a huge year for the Cloud. In the eBook, we wanted to cut straight to the core of everything Cloud, more specifically, where everyone is in their journey to the cloud and the evolving IT landscape that it brings. So to get you the high level trends from 2012, I spent some time compiling surveys, data sets, case studies, white papers, and more to find some of the most compelling, up-to-date stats out there.

Everything is broken down into current stats and future trend predictions. The first half is all about how to start a cloud, costs, staffing needs, deployment, open source, and challenges. Part two tackles the trends beyond 2012 from future growth projections to global spend and platform trends.

  • 11. CIO Tip: Choosing a Cloud Make sure the cloud is right • One of the things we see in CIOs who are ahead of the curve is that they have established clear criteria for when to go to the cloud. Key factors in making that decision include your resources – in terms of both budget and IT personnel – as well as your core competencies, your existing infrastructure, the need for security and compliance and any time constraints. • As CIO, your job is to figure out how technology can serve the business…your job has not changed. You need to start with the same questions.

  • 13. CIO Tip: Starting a Cloud Project Choose a High-Value Project • Good strategy to focus more on having and innovation project than having a cloud project. • No cloud project will be wildly successful unless there are a lot of people consuming the services. • One of the design points is to make sure there is both business and IT representation in making sure the service will be valuable. • Make sure the right VPs believe those are valuable services that they want to consume.

  • 28. Hidden Cost #1 Single Migration Costs Rewriting Applications • Certain applications that already run on virtual machines or developed in accordance with the standards of the cloud platform, are well-tolerated. But most require significant processing or rewriting code to ensure compatibility. This is especially true for legacy applications. Organizations need to assess the economic feasibility of the transfer of such applications. It may be cheaper to keep them in original form or to completely abandon them in favor of new ones. Write-offs for Depreciation • Companies that choose to update the application or infrastructure to accelerate the transition to the use of public cloud, could face the impossibility of further depreciation of existing equipment for depreciation. This explains why many companies intend to begin the study of clouds, when the time comes to change equipment.

It is important to determine the extent of the costs of such migration.

  • 117. The Cloud of 2020: Software Floats Away from Hardware Cloud computing is the final means by which computing becomes invisible. As a result, by 2020, if you were to ask a CIO to draw a map of their infrastructure, they would not be able to. This will be because it will be in a "highly abstracted space", where software is written in such a way that it goes through several filters before it interacts with hardware. http://www.zdnet.com/cloud-computing-10-ways-it-will-change-by-2020-7000001808/ 117110 Cloud Stats & Figures of 2012
  • 118. The Cloud of 2020: Modular Software With the growth in the size and complexity of individual programs, the software development process will place an emphasis on modular software — as in, large applications with components that can be modified without shutting down the program. As a consequence, cloud applications will require a new programming mindset, especially as they interact with multiple clouds. http://www.zdnet.com/cloud-computing-10-ways-it-will-change-by-2020-7000001808/ 118110 Cloud Stats & Figures of 2012
  • 119. The Cloud of 2020: Social Software The infrastructure and software of a data center will mould itself around the task required, rather than the other way around. Developers will no longer need to worry about provisioning storage, a server and a switch; all of this will happen automatically. http://www.zdnet.com/cloud-computing-10-ways-it-will-change-by-2020-7000001808/ 119110 Cloud Stats & Figures of 2012
  • 120. The Cloud of 2020: Commodity Hardware Rules By 2020 the transition to low-cost hardware will be in full swing as schemes such as the Open Compute Project find their way out of the data centers of Facebook and Amazon Web Services and into facilities operated by other, smaller companies as well. Servers and storage devices will look like replaceable sleds.

  • 121. The Cloud of 2020: Low-power Processors and Cheaper Clouds By 2020 its likely that low-power chips will be everywhere. And it wont just be ARM — Intel, aware of the threat, is working hard on driving down the power used by its Atom chips, though most efforts in this area are targeted at mobile devices rather than servers. Facebook thinks ARM adoption is going to start in storage equipment, then broaden to servers.

  • 122. The Cloud of 2020: Data Centers Become Ecosystems Cloud data centers will become much like a breathing and living organism with different states. The twinned technologies of abstracted software and commodified hardware should combine to make data centers function much more like ecosystems, with an over-arching system ruling equipment via software, with hardware controlled from a single point, but growing and shrinking according to workloads.

The Cloud of 2020 By the end of the decade, IDC expects at least 80% of the industry’s growth, and enterprises’ highest- value leverage of IT, will be driven by cloud services and other 3rd platform technologies.
