Infographic We’ve done it again. Another couple of slices through our Private Cloud research delivered in stunning Technicolor gloryvision.

For this beauty, click the pic to see it (PDF), we’ve zoomed in on the route from virtualisation to private cloud, showing adoption, how challenges are tackled, the progress made by your peers. And the necessary steps they've taken on the journey.
