Only 20% respondents have no plans to develop a cloud computing strategy, but there was a clear preference for using dedicated hardware instead of public cloud infrastructure. Virtualization is very popular, and the biggest benefit respondents perceive in cloud computing was hardware savings.
Another quick note: 69% of respondents use open source software “whenever possible.” Only 3% avoid it entirely. Also, 83% use Linux in the cloud, though Windows is also widely used (66%).
