Datapipe Outlines Key Cloud Computing Trends for 2012
JERSEY CITY, N.J., Dec. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Mainstream adoption has established cloud computing as a vital part of Enterprise IT strategic planning. As the model evolves, the ability to meet the developing governance and security requirements of global businesses will be crucial in 2012, according to Datapipe, a global provider of managed services and infrastructure for outsourced IT and cloud computing.
“Last year, we witnessed a growing number of applications - from enterprise back-office systems, to mobile and social gaming - begin to utilize the scale and resilience that cloud technology offers,” said Ed Laczynski, Datapipe’s vice-president for cloud strategy and architecture. “As a direct result of proven use cases seen in the past year, 2012 will see more businesses embrace this new class of efficient, flexible and reliable products and services.”
Datapipe predicts the following three trends will appear in 2012 as companies continue to turn to the cloud to safeguard valuable information:
Mainstreaming Continues – Everything “As a Service”
The movement toward mainstreaming the cloud has been validated by popular services from major consumer players and continues to grow the cloud share of technology spend. The need to qualify technology as “cloud” will start to disappear and be implicit in how quality services are sold and delivered to savvy customers.
Asian Markets To See Massive Expansion in Cloud Adoption
Regional businesses will leverage service providers with experience in mission critical IT services at scale, while businesses seeking to gain global market share will benefit from providers that have US and UK based operations to provide governance in this new frontier.
Cloud Security Will Be in the Forefront
Effective security services and vigilant governance will be required to avoid an eventual concentration of intentional - and unintentional - security breaches.
Datapipe offers a single provider solution for managing and securing mission-critical IT services, including cloud computing, infrastructure as a service, platform as a service, colocation and data centers. Datapipe delivers those services from the world’s most influential technical and financial markets including New York metro, Silicon Valley, London, Hong Kong and Shanghai.
