Ormuco, a leading global cloud, managed services and telecommunications provider, is launching its new enterprise hybrid cloud solution. A new report released last week by Peer 1 Hosting found hybrid cloud adoption is set to triple over the next three years.
Ormuco is providing the solution through the ‘Ormuco Connected Cloud’ which has the ability to have a private secure cloud off premise backed up with public cloud scalable on demand.
The study included responses from over 900 IT decision makers from North America and the UK. While only 10 percent of respondents said they primarily use hybrid cloud, 28 percent said they will be using hybrid cloud by 2018.
Use of on-premise hosting is expected to fall 14 percent over the next three years, and private cloud is expected to drop from 52 percent to 41 percent during the same period. Companies motivated to adopt hybrid cloud cite cutting IT costs, 49 percent, and improving processes and operational efficiencies, 45 percent, as their top priorities. Challenges in achieving these priorities include security, 53 percent, and data protection, 46 percent.
Michael Price, Head of Solutions EMEA for Ormuco, says; “Ormuco has a truly hybrid cloud model and this is where the market is heading. Many of our clients, particularly in the gaming sector, are using this solution as it provides cost savings, business agility and operational efficiencies. I believe we will see the next wave of change to full off premise models in the next 5 – 10 years.”
Ormuco recently joined the HP PartnerOne Service Provider Programme as a Charter member. The programme accelerates time to market with Cloud-ready infrastructure solutions and allows providers to deliver on the promise of cloud today based on HP Helion, a hybrid delivery approach using common architecture spanning traditional IT, private, managed and public clouds.
Ormuco will be attending the Ignite event in London 12th – 13th May, 2015
Peer 1 has been tracking cloud adoption for a few years. In 2013, a smaller survey Peer 1 conducted of 120 IT professionals found that 78 percent preferred a hybrid cloud solution over making a full transition to cloud.
