INSIGHT: Hybrid cloud to dominate regional cloud deployments in 2015

INSIGHT: Hybrid cloud to dominate regional cloud deployments in 2015

Many pundits throughout the world are anticipating a high-growth year as cloud technologies continue to mature, Jon Summers, Senior Vice President, Growth Platforms - AT&T says Asia Pacific is no exception.

For several years now it has been predicted that cloud computing practices would accelerate and each year these expectations have been exceeded.

For 2015, we see the intelligent hybrid cloud finally taking centre stage as businesses seek ways to address security, control and performance issues and manage ‘bring your own device’ (BYOD) risks.

Many pundits throughout the world are anticipating a high-growth year as cloud technologies continue to mature. Asia Pacific is no exception.

Across the region, governments and businesses are increasingly acknowledging the value of cloud computing as a tool to help build a strong knowledge economy and increase trade.

In its latest Cloud Readiness Index, the Asia Cloud Computing Association reports that countries across the entire region continue to improve their preparedness for cloud computing.

Those with a coherent “cloud first” strategy in both government and business development, such as Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong and South Korea, are leading the way, but all countries are making steady improvements by adding physical infrastructure and supportive policies.

As conditions for cloud deployments become more positive for businesses in Asia Pacific, we believe that the intelligent hybrid cloud is the platform that will dominate.

Several factors are driving the trend towards hybrid cloud solutions: security, control and performance are key.

Security issues are gaining importance in the boardroom, as BYOD deployments continue. Managing the risks associated with unsanctioned consumer apps in the workplace will only become more challenging.

2015 will bring new cloud security innovations and we will see many CIOs seeking to extend the security of their VPNs to a variety of cloud services.

These developments will demand that businesses adopt a tailored end-to-end security policy as cloud and mobile converge in the workplace.
