Only 15 percent customers adopt cloud technology
Bangalore: Only 15 percent of corporate customers have adopted or have considered adopting cloud technology as per a survey. The survey which included 300 global corporations showed that 38 percent are unsure about whether they will adopt cloud technology, reports InfoWorld.

The biggest challenge facing the adoption of this technology is security. Around 47 percent said that they are not even considering implementing the technology. The ITIC survey showed that 85 percent of the corporate customers won't implement cloud technology. Participants ranged from businesses with 100 users to large enterprises with more than 100,000 end users.

The survey showed similar results of disinterest in cloud technology like some other previously conducted surveys. While Forrester recently announced that only 25 percent of enterprises are using virtual servers, Gartner said that cloud application infrastructure technologies are not yet matured.

Apart from security, participants were concerned about the availability risks in public cloud model. "When you hear the next big buzzword or hype, whether it's SOA or SaaS or the new version of Windows, the adoption will be slower than what the press, analyst and vendor community leads you to believe," says, Laura DiDio, Principal Analyst, Information Technology Intelligence. However the survey also found that companies with around 3000 end users are moving faster on the cloud than companies with lesser end users. The uncertainty is because the vendors have not clearly said as to how data will be secured in the cloud.

1: Cloud doen not only mean accessing applications over internet. Cloud bassically is a the virtual environment which is popularly used by many domain host providors, and no one seem to be realising that. Its a great tool to save money on hardware and create ease of use. Now as the CPUs are faster and cheaper than one could have imagined few years back, cloud computing or thin client environment, and virtual servers can save considerable costs by saving on maintanence, lesser power consumption and quick access as the applications would virtually be instantly accessible to end users. No waiting for booting, backup worries etc to end users. There could be considerable licence cost savings also. Now imagine if cloud computing is done on open source applications, there will be enourmous ammount of cost savings. The only hitch is expertise to setup such environment, which should be aa considering factor and the costs saved should be weighed. Resistance would surely be there from older used to IT managers not willing to transit, and the hardware vendors for sure who would be fuming. But as time has mandated manufactureers and vendors to shift from a older stream to a newer stream of techinology demand, cloud computing would surely find widespread acceptance in few years to come.

5: Well, True the security of Data is a major concern
I had also raised this issue in the Session with Microsoft peoplw who gave a short demo in Oct 2007 in Leela.

I didnot get any concrete answer from them

7: hi i thinks it matter of use to most of employ r not use to so cause to it they r not full aware of tech. so such type data we can see now.
There could be one reason more, the gape of young and other,because this time most of new technology is used by young person ,so it could be a reason .

9: it is depending on the usage.
if that feature is useful and easy to use then every one can use. But it is not correct to tell not use of all features

11: It is also based on need... As said, it is mainly security as the concern...
