IDC Survey Results:
Private vs. Public Cloud

Which Cloud is the Right One?

Public cloud services such as AWS and Microsoft Azure are becoming increasingly popular and every IT organization now has a cloud mandate that they are trying to execute on. But the basic question about what workloads “move” and what workloads “stay” still remains unanswered. Is the public cloud an ideal destination for all workloads? Is it cost effective to run all your enterprise applications in the public cloud for years? In this must-read customer report, IDC presents results from interviews with several large organizations to understand their cloud strategy and how they are trying to operationalize it.

As you build your organization’s cloud strategy, read this report to better understand:

  • How enterprise IT infrastructure investments will evolve over the next few years.
  • How large manufacturing, retail and financial companies are using public clouds—and where they are using on-prem infrastructure and private clouds.
  • Factors keeping applications and data local, and reasons for moving them onto public cloud services.
