Who is this guy in this picture that doesn’t have a positive opinion of cloud computing?
San Antonio-based Rackspace today released a survey of information technology decision makers showing that nine out of ten have a positive opinion of cloud computing and customer service and technical support were their top considerations when choosing a cloud computing provider.
They also reported computing power and data migration as important when choosing a cloud provider.
“The world is in the midst of a tectonic shift toward cloud computing that is revolutionizing the way companies do business,” Rackspace CEO Lanham Napier said a in a statement. “The survey shows that IT decision makers understand the importance of selecting a cloud provider that empowers their businesses with the systems, products, and customer service capabilities to successfully make the transition to the cloud.”
“We believe it is important that companies be empowered with choice, an open cloud and the high level of technical support they need to concentrate on their core business,” Napier said. “A chief benefit for IT decision makers using open-source technology is portability of workloads across vendors and the elimination of vendor lock-in.”
