What do customers actually seek from cloud infrastructure providers? There's a lot to consider when it comes to the cloud buying process. Security, compatibility and managed services are just a few important offerings cloud buyers have to consider. But, what matters most to cloud consumers?

In January 2013, cloud services provider Bluelock set out to better understand the consumers' needs and desires for an infrastructure-as-a-service offering. More than 325 individuals took an 11-question survey over a period of three months. Individuals represented companies of all sizes, industries and job titles. Despite their demographic differences the consumers were united in many of their value rankings, sentiments and use-cases. The results draw a strong picture of what matters most to the IaaS consumer now, and what they expect to care about in the future. View the cloud infographic below to learn more!
