- By 2016 two-thirds all workloads will be processed in the cloud, which is a two-fold increase on the number on workloads per installed cloud server in 2011. Better make sure you’re getting your work done on time and in budget because your world is going to be no longer private!
- For those of you who don’t know what an Exabyte is, it’s equivalent to 1 billion gigabytes and currently businesses around the world use 268 Exabyte’s when using the cloud. That’s an increase from 124 in 2011 and is expected to increase more than double to 596 Exabyte’s by 2016! That is a hell of a bite!
- Cloud usage is currently measured at 39% in the public cloud such as google drive, 34% is being used in the private cloud which are used by businesses internally and 27% in the hybrid cloud which is where both the clouds are bound together whilst remaining unique entities. Hybrid cloud provides the flexibility of in house applications with the fault tolerance and scalability of cloud based services.
- The value of the cloud services are on the up! They are currently worth $117bn and is projected to increase around $100bn to $220bn with the public cloud alone expected to worth around $110bn in 2016. There’s a lot of money in things that don’t really exist!
