Today Cloud.com, Zenoss and BitNami released the results of a recent survey to determine the key IT objectives and obstacles to cloud adoption. The survey respondent base consisted of the development communities from BitNami, CloudStack and Zenoss Core, all open source projects, and included more than 500 IT professionals. For an analysis of the results see Cloud Computing Survey Finds Scalability and Cost Savings Driving Cloud Adoption on CloudTweaks.com. The following Infographic is based on the survey results.
The best infographics simplify complex data and make it instantly intuitive, which makes this form of presentation ideal for cloud computing and its related topics. The following three infographics of the cloud computing landscape each explain its core concepts and market dynamics from a completely different vantage point. I found these over on Alex William’s post on ReadWrite Cloud titled 3 Infographics About Cloud Computing.
The company who provided this first infographic is Zenoss, a provider of cloud monitoring tools and services. The infographic does a great job of supporting their unique value proposition and position in the market – and delivers some excellent market data in the process.
This is one of the more data-rich infographics on the cloud computing landscape in the enterprise. It’s from Cloud Hypermarket out of the UK. This company offers a £250 Start Up Service for anyone wanting to launch a cloud-based company with them.
This very well-known and popular infographic is from Wikibon, a community of IT professionals who generate excellent content across a range of subject areas. They are worth checking out and following either through RSS feeds from their blog or on Facebook and Twitter.
