The study finds that many companies are still cautious about the security of large-scale migrations. As a result, a third of companies encrypt all of their workload in virtualization processes to meet their data security requirements.
The Industry Experience: the 2016 State of the Cloud and Software Defined Data Centre in Real World Environments study finds that the public cloud and virtualization have been widely adopted by companies.
Over half of the workload of sectors such as technology, finance and healthcare now use the public cloud. The most commonly used platforms include Microsoft Azure, used by 50% of the healthcare sector, and AWS (Amazon Web Services), which is used by 29% of the sector.
