Next Cloud Adoption Trends Favor Private Cloud Two to One-2 Next

The survey asked respondents about three cloud service types: software as a service (SaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and computing resources. Unsurprisingly, the SaaS cloud service type is the most popular service used among survey respondents. SaaS applications are becoming widespread throughout the business and personal lives of IT and non-IT users alike, with companies like, Google's Gmail, and many mobile and social media applications living in the cloud. According to the survey, 45 percent of respondents are using SaaS and 33 percent plan to use it.

Private cloud is the most popular cloud deployment model, according to a survey of IT professionals and executives who are involved in the cloud computing purchase process. The survey was conducted by Palmer Research and QuinStreet Enterprise, the publisher of well-known IT media brands that include IT Business Edge, eWeek, Datamation and CIO Insight.

The survey found 65 percent of respondents use or plan to use the private cloud deployment model. Despite the best efforts of cloud computing vendors, and increased adoption in recent years, concerns around security (mentioned as extremely or very inhibiting by 70 percent of respondents), privacy (69 percent), uptime (62 percent) and the control of data (61 percent) remain the most likely inhibitors to adopting cloud computing services and applications.
