Enterprises open to private Cloud deployment as hybrid transition heightens

“The private Cloud market is unique..."

Even the largest enterprises, such as those with stringent governance policies, appear likely to adopt private Cloud solutions as the first step to transitioning from traditional to truly hybrid IT environments.

The knock-on effect according to Technology Business Research is the increased total market opportunity, which is forecast to reach an estimated $US44 billion by 2020.

Although small compared to the expansive public cloud market, the hosted private cloud market is growing.

As the market lacks one clear leader, time and space remain for small vendors to catch up to front-runner IBM.

“The private cloud market is unique, with independent software vendors, systems integrators, born-on-the-cloud vendors and hosting companies all investing to gain market share,” says Cassandra Mooshian, Cloud Analyst, TBR.

“The best way to win in this market in 2016 will be to promote relatable success stories and case studies that showcase the added efficiencies and cost savings associated with hosted cloud environments as well as the security benefits of deploying workloads in hosted private cloud environments.”

TBR’s 2H15 Private Cloud Customer Research, which highlights hosted private cloud and self-built private cloud adoption, found 71 per cent of private Cloud users view private cloud as superior to public Cloud based on security.

A shift in customers’ investments over the past six months from development (PaaS) to production (IaaS and SaaS), noticeably impacted the market; although, IaaS remains the largest segment in the private Cloud market as enterprise value dedicated cloud instances.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
