Bangalore: A survey of 267 Oracle shops finds private cloud is already a working reality. The survey find that 29 percent of organizations report they already have deployed an internal cloud, with another 15 percent piloting, planning or considering private clouds. Around 37 percent of respondents indicate that some piece of their organization's workload processing or infrastructure is now available through private cloud services.

In the process, many companies also are becoming cloud suppliers in their own right. Along with IT enabled services made available to parts of the organization, more than a third also extend these services to their external networks of customers and partners. Nine percent, in fact, say that a sizeable segment of their IT services are now also available to users outside their firewalls.

Despite of all the criticisms like "private cloud," fails to meet the true definition of cloud, being a collection of resources across the Web, this survey bring out the fact that many companies forge ahead with their own implementations of cloud for the benefit of employees and business partners.
