Gartner on Public & Private Cloud Computing

Posted 8.25.10 by

According to Tom Bittman, vice president at Gartner, IT managers are more concerned with security and privacy than they are with the next three public cloud problems combined.

In a separate poll on public cloud computing versus private cloud computing, 75% of IT managers said that they will be deploying a private cloud strategy by 2012 and 75% will invest more in private clouds than in public clouds through in the next 2 years.

Gartner believes that the investment in private cloud computing will outweigh the investment in public cloud computing for the next several year.  I agree – the obstacles of network and data security, performance and compliance issues means private clouds win – at least in the foreseeable future – when it comes to corporate IT deployment.
