Symantec 2011 Virtualization and Evolution to Cloud Presentation Transcript

  • 1. 2011 Virtualization and Evolution to theCloud SurveyKey Findings
  • 2. Methodology• Survey Performed by Applied Research• 3,700 enterprises worldwide• Tactical IT, Strategic IT and C-level professionals• Cross-industry 2
  • 3. Key Findings• Gaps between expectations and reality• Increasing focus on business-critical applications• Quality of service challenges• IT and business executives out of synch• Most organizations rely heavily on outside service providers
  • 4. Market Adoption• Most (76-83%) are at least discussing cloud adoption• Server virtualization is most mature (45% implementing)• Private Storage-as-a-Service is least mature (36% implementing)• Greater adoption in large enterprises• U.S. ahead of the rest of the world
  • 5. Q12: At what stage is your organization in each of the following areas? 1 - Not considering 2 - In discussion/planning phase 3 - In trials 4 - Implementing 5 - Have implemented100% 15% 15%90% 20% 20% 24%80% 20% 21%70% 21% 23% 21%60% 20% 19%50% 19% 21% 16%40% 22% 21%30% 20% 21% 19%20% 24% 24%10% 19% 20% 17% 0% Storage virtualization Desktop or endpoint Server virtualization Private storage-as-a-service Private or hybrid cloud virtualization computing
  • 6. Gaps Between Expectations and Reality RevealEvolving Market• We asked those who have already implemented: – What their original goals were (expected) – What they actually achieved after implementing (realized goals)• We measured the gap between expected and realized goals• Server virtualization tracked well (only 4% average gap)• Private Storage-as-a-Service challenging to implement (37% average gap)
  • 7. Server Virtualization• Biggest gaps: – Scalability (down 7%) – Reduce CapEx (down 12%) – Reduce OpEx (down 10%)
  • 8. Storage Virtualization• Biggest gaps: – Agility (down 32%) – Scalability (down 35%) – Reduce OpEx (down 32%)
  • 9. Endpoint/Desktop Virtualization• Biggest gaps: – New endpoint deployment (down 27%) – Application delivery (down 30%) – Application compatibility (down 27%)
  • 10. Private Storage-as-a-Service• Biggest gaps: – Scalability (down 34%) – Reduced complexity (down 40%) – Efficiency (down 37%)
  • 11. Hybrid/Private Cloud Computing• Biggest gaps: – Time to provision new resources (down 39%) – Scalability (down 34%) – Security (down 29%)
  • 12. Increasing Focus on Business-Critical Applications• Organizations leveraging virtualization for business-critical applications – Top apps include database, web, email and calendar• More slowly leveraging hybrid/private cloud technologies – Average of 33% of business-critical apps in hybrid/private cloud environments – Concerns over vulnerabilities, disaster recovery and encryption
  • 13. Quality of Service Challenges Emerge as Top Priorities• Storage cost and performance is top of mind• Security concerns• Performance issues• Availability
  • 14. IT and Business Executives Out of Synch• Why? – Reliability – Security – Performance• IT very open• App owners also open• U.S. less cautious than the rest of the world
  • 15. Most Organizations Lean Heavily on Third-partyService Providers
  • 16. Symantec Recommendations• Ensure alignment between IT and executives in virtualization and cloud initiatives• Don’t operate in a silo when it comes to cloud computing• Leverage and modernize your existing infrastructure• Set realistic expectations and track your results
