Click through for results from a colocation data center survey, conducted by Internap Network Services Corporation.

Internap Network Services Corporation, a provider of intelligent IT infrastructure services, recently released the results of a survey that shows IT organizations are seeking to transform their traditional colocation environments with “cloudy colo” capabilities that deliver hybridization with cloud services as well as cloud-like visibility and control.

The finding was revealed as part of a survey conducted by Internap to gain insight into organizations’ current use of multi-tenant data center services and considerations for the future. Internap polled more than 100 IT decision makers in the U.S. responsible for purchasing a range of IT infrastructure services from colocation to cloud and hosting. Respondents spanned a wide range of industries, including technology, media and entertainment, health care, financial services and retail, and represented a broad range of company sizes, from more than $10 billion to less than $1 million in revenue.

Although cloud adoption is on the rise, colocation will remain an important IT infrastructure option, with 451 Research expecting demand to outpace supply in most of the top 10 markets through 2014. However, the agility associated with cloud services is likely to impact the way colocation services are managed and delivered in the future.
