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.

Both PDF's feature stats from our reader research, 'Private Cloud in Context.' You can read the report in full, for free, here. It includes the views of more than 500 of your fellow readers of The Register. You really couldn't wish for more valuable insight.

There’s much more private cloud reader research available in our whitepaper library too, including the following two reports – similarly hot off the press.
