Less than one-fifth of enterprise IT assets are in the cloud, but it looks like more are on the way.
One-third of data-center professionals and IT practitioners plan to deploy workloads in the cloud in the next year, according to a survey by the Uptime Institute, an advisory group focused on improving critical infrastructure.
Companies still rely mostly on their own infrastructure and multi-tenant data centers, including collocation facilities, the survey found. Some 65 percent of IT assets are in-house, and only 13 percent are in the cloud.
But the move to the cloud continues. The survey found 67 percent of respondents had seen at least some workloads that would have run internally in the past move to the cloud.
