Analysis. Moshier, who has been a member of the IOUG for the past 5 years, will receive an Apple iPad 16GB with WiFi.
The 2010 IOUG Cloud Computing Survey was conducted in August 2010 by Unisphere Research, a division of Information Today, Inc., and sponsored by Oracle Corporation.
While there has been no shortage of excitement in the past year about public cloud computing, the study finds an even larger and more pervasive cloud revolution has been taking place; "private clouds" offer the same flexibility and incremental cost advantages to end users as public clouds, but with less perceived risk and greater assurances of security and accountability. The survey finds that private cloud formations are growing in many companies, and often outpacing adoption of public cloud services.
