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. 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.

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. 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.

Emerging Trends: The Infinite Data Center The movement toward smaller size but greater density in data centers, combined with a trend to analyze performance per kilowatt, is leading to energy management as a newer type of discipline, even for moderately energy-intensive organizations, by 2017, where a focus on energy- management information systems is apparent.

  89. 89. Emerging Trends: Resource Management Virtualization of servers is well along but businesses still havent gotten the maximum performance benefits they can get in workload management. And water use as a coolant in data centers is another trend to know about. Data center information management (DCIM) vendors should be evaluated to see if they can bring anything to data center resource management.

  90. 90. Emerging Trends: Hybrid Clouds Through next year, more than 60% of enterprises will have some form of cloud adoption, and the majority will be exploring private and public cloud techniques, in whats called a hybrid cloud. Into the next three years, private cloud focused on service-centric delivery of IT services to the organization will emerge. Companies should be evaluating what are commodity services and move them to the public cloud, recognizing the decision to virtualize is impacting rack-based bandwidth I/O profoundly, increasing it 25 times over.

  91. 91. Emerging Trends: Fabric Data Centers Evolving from server centrism to fabric infrastructure for servers, networks and storage will mean more flexibility in workload mobility and placement based on continuously changing factors, such as number of users and time of day. Building these kinds of resource pools that can be managed and configured is worthwhile.

  93. 93. Emerging Trends: Storage and Big Data • When data storage hits a petabyte and more, suddenly theres a lot of big data and companies would like to be able to analyze it to spot trends that could be useful to their businesses. But most of this data will be unstructured data which hasnt been correlated in novel ways before, and theres the challenge. • But clearly companies are going to find ways based on "pattern-based strategies" to apply "intelligent analytics to this stuff.” Source: Gartner Top 10 List from its Infrastructure & Operations Management Summit http://www.networkworld.com/news/2012/060512-gartner-trends-259883.html 93110 Cloud Stats & Figures of 2012
  94. 94. Emerging Trends:Software-defined Networks Virtualizing the Data Center • Over the next few years, there will be software- defined networks designed that have basically separated hardware from software in a way that will slowly do away with the box-by-box approach and handcrafted configurations of today, where tomorrow there will be an automated workflow for the next-generation data center. These fabric-based systems are evolving that — be prepared.

  117. 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

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.
