2016 the Year of All-in Cloud Computing

2016 will be the year of Enterprise IaaS adoption. The discussion is no longer "if" - it is "what, when, and how?" which, of course, is great news for a company like Racemi as suppliers of automation software for server migrations.

Enterprises have been testing the waters over the last couple of years to varying degrees - some all-in, some hardly-in, and mostly in between. Now, the majority of our customers have confirmed that IaaS has matured to the point where it is ready for widespread consumption.

We anticipate hundreds of thousands of enterprise applications (in virtually every category) migrated to IaaS next year, with many adopting a hybrid cloud strategy that incorporates multiple cloud vendors. These companies have chosen to diversify their cloud strategy and not rely on a single vendor for compute and storage services, which should also dovetail nicely with their Disaster Recovery planning as well. We expect migration technology to continue to be a key component of these enterprise companies' cloud strategies as they execute more broadly in the transition to cloud computing.
