Survey Reveals Developers Concentrating on Hybrid Cloud in 2010

The hybrid cloud is set to dominate the IT landscape in 2010 because of those surveyed, over 87 percent of the developers said that half or less of their resources will move. A statement obtained by quotes CEO of Evans Data Janel Garvin as saying, “The hybrid Cloud presents a very reasonable model, which is easy to assimilate and provides a gateway to Cloud computing without the need to commit all resources or surrender all control and security to an outside vendor. Security and government compliance are primary obstacles to public cloud adoption, but a hybrid model allows for selective implementation so these barriers can be avoided.”

Evans Data conducted its survey over November and December of last year as a way to examine timelines for public and private cloud adoption, ways in which to collaborate and develop within the cloud, obstacles and benefits of cloud development, architectures and tools for cloud, development, virtualization in the private data center and other aspects of cloud computing. The survey also concluded that 64 percent of developers surveyed expect their clod apps to venture into mobile devices in the near future as well.

Additional information about the future of cloud computing revealed by Evans Data’s poll revealed that the preferred database for use in the public cloud is MySQL, preferred by over 55 percent of developers. Following by Microsoft and IBM, VMware was also revealed to be the preferred hypervisor vendor or user in a virtualized private cloud. To learn more please visit
