  4. 4. Market Reality of Cloud Computing
  5. 5. © 2014 Citrix. Confidential.5 Challenges Today Operational complexity To scale, admins required to be experts in network, storage, compute in addition to desktop virtualization First 1000 users Next 2000 users Unpredictable Demand Provisioning based on future demand projections are often inaccurate, leading to delayed time to value Proj. Demand Actual Demand Upfront CAPEX Each modular building block requires new capital expenditures with step-function cost increase $/user # of users Complexity. Unpredictability. Expensive.
  6. 6. © 2014 Citrix. Confidential.6 [Source: Gartner, 2013] • Virtualization has prepared Enterprise IT workloads to be cloud-ready • Private clouds are mainly hosting datacenter workloads but rapidly adding desktop and collaboration apps • Most Enterprises (IT and LOB) are considering leveraging, or are already consuming, Public Cloud services, e.g. Hybrid Cloud Computing • Future of Enterprise IT is projected to be “Hybrid IT” Key Trends in Cloud Computing
