Seven trends in data centre virtualisation and cloud computing

Cloud adoption is accelerating

Cloud has evolved over the past few years, from an emerging technology to an established virtualisation solution that is becoming increasingly common within enterprises across different sectors. The Cisco Global Cloud Index forecasts a dramatic shift over the coming years, with cloud data centres growing more than three times faster than traditional data centres by 2020.

Public cloud prevails

The Cisco GCI report outlines that there will be increased business adoption of public cloud as a result of growing concerns in costs and scalability. The report forecasts that, both traditional and private cloud data centers will lose significant share to public clouds across many applications; by 2020 half of compute and collaboration applications will have moved to the public cloud, whereas 100% of search and social networking applications will reside in public clouds.
