Private cloud deployments currently command the lion’s share of spending on hosting among enterprises in Europe, a new survey has shown.
Easynet polled almost 700 IT decision-makers at organisations with 1,000-plus employees across the continent, finding that almost half (47 per cent) preferred private hosting solutions for their cloud deployments.
Conversely, just over one in ten enterprises (11 per cent) were mainly using public cloud services, while 26 per cent were sticking with on-premise infrastructure for their hosting needs.
The survey results indicate that most enterprise IT environments are now virtualised, vastly altering their data recovery requirements should they fail.
“As volumes of corporate data continue to grow, European enterprises are acknowledging the importance of cloud computing for storing and managing data,” commented Adrian Thirkill, managing director for enterprise at Easynet.
He added that despite private clouds’ current popularity, more complex hybrid environments are also on the rise – particularly in the UK and Belgium.
It is wise to choose a data recovery company who has a track record in recovering from the type of data loss you have experienced.
