IT organizations are growing their use of infrastructure as a service (IaaS) for a variety of purposes, including internal production systems, systems development and testing, and disaster recovery. We expect that growth to continue, though some companies are reticent to adopt IaaS. This report quantifies the current adoption and investment trends for IaaS, as well as the benefits driving adoption and the buyer concerns holding it back. We assess these trends by organization size, sector, and region. We also look at the return on investment and total cost of ownership experience of those who have adopted IaaS and conclude with practical advice for IT leaders seeking to gain support for IaaS investments.
