The Private Cloud outlook

Visual snapshot of Reg hive mind

We set the designer's beret to a jaunty angle and told him to tell us a little visual story, based on the information you shared with us in this report, based on reader research about private cloud.

The result is what many call an infographic. We are not so rash.

Check out our visual snapshot (PDF) of the Private Cloud outlook, the companies that are adopting it, why they're adopting and how they're feeling the benefits.

A fair few of you told us you were fans of private cloud, much more so than other 'cloud' forms. And it's seemingly because it is really just the natural consequence of several trends that have unfolded in the data centre world for a decade.

This snapshot of our Private Cloud research represents the view of more than 500 Reg readers (thanks for your help). You can download the research for free here. ®
