ITAD firm Liquid Technology recently released the results of their 2019 customer survey of Cloud infrastructure trends. 36% of the respondents reported having less than a quarter of their current infrastructure in the cloud. However, when describing their cloud plans for 2019, more than 63% noted that their business will either definitely be shifting more to the cloud or will be looking into making a more considerable move. More than 72% foresee their company eventually having a hybrid cloud solution, citing flexibility, and reliability as the biggest benefits.
The survey also reports that the majority of businesses see security as their greatest concern when considering cloud solutions, and nearly half of the respondents forecasted the need to retire up to 1,000 pieces of equipment in 2019. The most difficult part of a cloud transition can be creating an effective strategy for removing excess equipment.
