Research: IaaS impact on data center design and staffing
The importance of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is evident in the growing number of companies either already implementing, or planning to implement.
Underscoring the strength of IaaS is the responses gathered in each of the last two TechRepublic Premium surveys on the topic. The first, in April, detailed what companies were considering when making the move to the cloud. The latest survey, in July, reached out to 124 business and IT professionals to get their take on expected and actual IaaS benefits.
Topics covered in the TechRepublic Premium survey include IT staffing changes due to IaaS, budget impact from IaaS, current and future plans for implementing IaaS, expectations and overall changes made to the data center as a result of IaaS implementation, and IaaS impact on operational effectiveness.
