RightScale’s “State of the Cloud” report is out now and has been well covered by InfoWorld, so I won’t give you the rundown here. But there were key findings I want to point out in terms of impact to the enterprise.
According to the report:
- In polling the respondents, RightScale found that Azure grew overall from 20 to 34 percent, while Amazon Web Services stayed flat at 57 percent.
- Google grew from 10 to 15 percent to maintain third position.
- Within enterprises, Azure increased adoption significantly: from 26 percent to 43 percent. By contrast, AWS adoption increased slightly: from 56 percent to 59 percent.
Enterprises are asking about the last bullet point because they have made a tremendous investment in AWS, but are now second-guessing their support.
