Enterprises See Key Benefits in Deploying Cloud Services With Virtualized Network
The promises of increased cost efficiency, flexibility, and improved scalability continue to drive interest in cloud computing services. But while promising significant benefits, moving to the cloud also requires organizations to take a new approach to IT. Full migration to cloud computing is a big step, and certain "Foundational technologies," such as chargeback and self-service provisioning, need to be in place. This paper summarizes the key findings of the survey. It begins by exploring how respondents rate the current state of their cloud implementations. It then looks at their future plans for cloud computing services. Finally, it gauges respondents' interest in cloud computing services that include a virtualized network.
