This will be a consideration on all virtualization solitions.
We won\'t be as concerned with internal virtualization as we expect to have all production and most QA applications in the cloud within 2 years.
The need to be certified ie be supported in a Saas environment, integration to Cloud must be more than a thought or slide in Powerpoint.
Very little use of clouds.
It will not.
I will expect a cloud option to be standard.
Most of the highly secured Application will still be kept internal by doing Virtualization
we will externalize as much as possible
The concept of cloud computing is in early stages and it is to soon to truly understand the impact. Although the concept of centralized computing is not new the business case drivers internally need to be refined.
Will look at internal virtualization solutions before we look to cloud solutions.
In terms of SasS, no affect on my decision.
For CasS, I may look to use the most industry standard virtualization solution, today VMware. Because future CaaS offerings may allow me to move workloads to a CaaS vendor on demand and will minimize the need to requalify and test the app. Standards are important here.
Cloud computing will not impact our core services due to regulatory issues associated with cloud computing. We have not see any indictation from the cloud computing providers to move to PCI compliance. One alternative that could allow for such a move would be tokenization of PANs
I am not sure that for the narrow scope of the question there will be an impact.
No too much of an impact. I will only be looking at low end seldom accessed data.
How do they handle data and how can i control and audit that
Will still use VMWare primarily, but will alsoi have to adapt the virtual solutions from Citrix and Microsoft for select clients
No impact. They are being treated as different solutions at this time.
Security, Availability, SLA, Price
We want to be able to manage our internal cloud and external cloud using the same tools so that the difference between them will be minimized.
It will change the current model.
Just another architecture option, not weighted any more heavily than any other
Most likely will not impact internal supplier selections
No impact. We will continue to walk backwards in the world of wise IT decision making.
it will not.
Our internal virtualization solutions are already in place for next 1-2 years.
depends on the solution requiered
Not at all
Integration/APIs, data transportability
I think both cloud providers and internal virtualization solutions will have strong footing in the future to come.
Server virtualization technology must enable interoperability between internal and external clouds.
Internal virtualisation won\'t be affected. though there may be some hybrid models. e.g Staff employee Chat to customers. Mapping applications for Geography apps.
cloud is not a major impact to our environment
I dont think cloud is coming in as a consideration in any major way for business critical application where virtualization will be a key consideration
Still evaluating impact
Due to the nature of our work, we might still require to stay on the traditional physical specilized hardware components for a few more years, before going on virtualization solutions.
have not looked at it yet as a firm
I couldn\'t say with certainty as of yet.
Ease of integration with existing and new solutions.
not too much impact.
We see visualization continue to help us in optimizing and reducing datacentre footprint at lease for next 2-3 years. This is despite the willingness to adopt and experiment with Cloud.
a vendor won\'t be considered unless they have a Cloud solution
Internal virtualization solutions that do not support Cloud will not be ranked as highly as those that do.
will virtualize those won\'t go to cloud yet.
We have set a standard that we intend to keep for at least the next 3-5 years.
too soon to tell
Have not considered.
too early to tell yet
reduce our need for internal resources or hired consultants.
Too new to Cloud computing for us to make an informed decision at this time...
The internal platforms must enable transparent mobility in/out external clouds.
Curretnly there are not too many vendors but for IT budget intensive companies, decisions would be very critical. For the large vendors, it would be very profitable in the initial years.
Vendor claims that their internal virtualization solutions will migrate to the cloud (e.g., VMWare) are worth study.
If I had to make a decision today, I would go ALL internal. I do not consider Cloud or XaaS ready for prime time. Many unanswered questions on security, liability, integration, tie-in, vendor viability, etc.
Go/No Go decision will be impacted by cloud offering
reporting ability and BI
both are required
Virtualization is for those who run their business on Microsoft only. It makes no difference to me, and again, is not a business issue, it is tech issue.
we expect to move as much as possible into the cloud over the next 3 years and reduce the cost of internal virtualiziation solutions
I will perform an extensive comparision between Clouda vs non Cloud vendores for internal virtualization solutions
Not relevant for us
still pressing forward to reduce data center footprint
we\'ll expect that cloud based solutions will have the same functionality as internally hosted solutions.
Will favour vrndors with an integrated cloud offering
it wont really, saas is still too expensive at this stage to be a reall competative advantage
We look for continuous development capabilities where additional customization can be rolled out each day.
I don\'t know
Using ranking of importance. Also based on the apps available
will play a huge part
not a big player
it will not.
I don\'t know.
Vendor selection will be based mostly on price performance and service commitment levels.
