Statistics in Cloud Computing: The Changing Frontier
Cloud computing has been a powerful force that has taken enterprises by storm. Its growth is rapid, and its utilization is expanding just as quickly. While some businesses hesitate to make the leap from traditional methods to cloud technology, they may find that they are in the minority very soon.
LogicMonitor’s survey of industry influencers, titled “Cloud Vision 2020:
The Future of the Cloud,” conducted in November 2017, identifies the trends, concerns, and adaptation behaviors of enterprise companies with relevance to cloud technology. Their findings are indicative of current trends of cloud hosting utilization as well as future expectations for these hosting methods.
Main Concerns for Enterprises Engaged with Public Cloud
The graph above may indicate some similar sentiments felt by other enterprise stakeholders as they consider moving to a public cloud setting. The majority of those are primarily concerned with security, while the other main challenges relate to compliance (60%), lack of cloud experience (58%), and privacy (57%).
Investing in managed security can assist your enterprise in growing at pace without compromising on protections. This service can provide convenience/peace of mind, long-term cost savings, as well as much-needed proactive security measures.
A solution to these challenges is undoubtedly working with a third-party company that can monitor, ensure compliance, and provide the necessary experience for deploying an enterprise’s public cloud and providing custom public cloud solutions.

Wowrack is your partner for cost-effective public cloud, private cloud, and hybrid cloud & infrastructure solutions offering scalable, secure, reliable and compliance hosting geared for your business.
The Future of Workload Hosting
While the majority of workload hosting resides on-premises today, we can see the drastic change occur by 2020. On-premises hosting will decrease by 10%, while hosting on the public cloud is slated to increase by 10%. This dramatic shift indicates that enterprise stakeholders understand the benefits of public cloud hosting, such as:
- Controlled Backup Solutions
- Platform as a Service (PaaS)
- Anywhere Access
- API Support
This graphic also highlights an interesting contrast between the utilization of the managed private cloud and hybrid cloud today and in the future – and one could speculate that this may indicate the lack of knowledge of the unique benefits of those types of cloud hosting methods that may, in fact, be more beneficial to a company than other cloud hosting methods.
Wowrack has been on the cutting edge of enterprise cloud hosting since its inception and has stayed on top of industry trends. In 2017, the blog post “Turning to Managed Services Should be Your Company’s New Year Resolution” highlighted a similar message to LogicMonitor’s study, showing the benefits of moving to managed cloud hosting:
“Whether it’s finding the best infrastructure for your company’s unique network, practicing compliance laws, or having someone manage all your IT needs, you don’t want to be trailing behind the competition.” – Wowrack
