No Vendor Even Close To Google & IBM Who Are Perceived Cloud Leaders

Survey says that 40% of developers think Google is the Public cloud leader and almost 30% think IBM as the top Private Cloud provider. No other vendor is even close in terms of perceived leadership.

“Most developers expect to be in a hybrid situation going forward with respect to application deployment in the Cloud,” said Janel Garvin, CEO of Evans Data. “And these two vendors are perceived of as best filling the two main requirements for either Public or Private clouds; i.e., security and reliability. With no other vendors even close in perceived leadership, it’s likely that we’ll see IBM and Google dominating the cloudscape for the foreseeable future.”

Developers also feel it is very important to be able to move applications between public and private clouds, and it is especially important to be able to move from the Public Cloud to the Private Cloud.

  1. Over 80% feel that it is important for cloud providers to give 100% backward compatibility as the cloud infrastructure matures
  2. Sixty percent are concerned with government geographical restrictions with Cloud deployments
  3. Better data encryption is the most wished for security improvement for Public Cloud

Are the perceived leaders and the actual leaders in cloud computing the same or do developers think Google & IBM have a bigger presence than in reality? Where do the cloud solutions from Microsoft, Amazon, Force.com & others stand?

Google is the perceived leader for setup, infrastructure and application management in a Public Cloud and IBM is the top choice of developers for Private Clouds according to Evans Data’s recently released Cloud Development Survey 2010. Over 40% of developers sited Google as the Public cloud leader and almost 30% identified IBM as the top Private Cloud provider, in this survey of over 400 software developers released end of June..”Most developers expect to be in a hybrid situation going forward with respect to application deployment in the Cloud,” said Janel Garvin, CEO of Evans Data. “And these two vendors are perceived of as best filling the two main requirements for either Public or Private clouds; i.e., security and reliability.

Developers also feel it is very important to be able to move applications between public and private clouds, and it is especially important to be able to move from the Public Cloud to the Private Cloud.

Other highlights from this bi-annual survey include:

• Sixty percent are concerned with government geographical restrictions with Cloud deployments

• Better data encryption is the most wished for security improvement for Public Cloud

    considering the proprietary nature of google platform..its surprising to see google top the charts.

    well, on IBM even am surprised to see this..ok maybe they have required components for private cloud.. however, saying no other vendors are even closer is taking a skewed opinion!

    Can you please remove these extremely annoying Kontera ads?

  • Sridhar

    Surprising results. Being the early mover, Amazon should have had the most market share & mind share.IBM as the top private cloud provider is also a big surprise
