Enterprises continue to move critical applications and IT infrastructure to the cloud to increase flexibility and save on costs, according to a new report from Ops-ramp, published Thursday.
Some 84% of the 137 IT executives surveyed said they plan to move more workloads to the cloud within the next two years. The top reasons for migrating further were a desire for greater flexibility and scalability (62% of respondents), as well as the ability to avoid capital expenditures on hardware, software, IT support, and security (47%). Another 47% said cost management via elastic provisioning was the primary benefit to moving to the cloud, the survey found.
Saving costs by using cloud technology was a major driving factor for adoption among many IT professionals: 94% of respondents said the cloud would reduce setup and maintenance costs, and 47% said their IT costs would drop by 30-50% from the use of cloud infrastructure and apps.
Some 40% of IT professionals said they are using the cloud in production environments, while 33% said they were using it for development and testing.
