VMware Calls Out Service Providers
As an early Christmas card to its many and valued service provider partners, VMware did a survey that started out by assessing the pervasiveness of public cloud, moved to addressing the adaptation of IaaS (it’s going well), and finally wound its way to updating the challenges facing those valued service providers.
Starting with the pervasiveness of public cloud adoption, VMware didn’t really need a survey to tell them that it has moved beyond test and development in many companies. More specifically, the study says that 67 percent of the mid-market and enterprise companies surveyed have implemented what they refer to as mission-critical workloads based on IaaS, and 80 percent of IaaS customers surveyed are running production workloads.
Reflecting on its relationship with cloud service providers, and elaborating on the study– conducted by the Enterprise Strategy Group– VMware says "Seventy percent of current IaaS customers use cloud storage services, followed by 58 percent using cloud servers, and 53 percent are leveraging disaster recovery services."
