wiredmikey writes: It’s no surprise that many organizations are embracing the cloud and moving critical enterprise applications to public, private and hybrid clouds. The results of the survey further confirm the trend and shed some insight as to what resources IT departments are migrating to the cloud. The Web based study surveyed 434 IT professionals across two regions – North America (273) and Europe (161) in organizations with 1,000 to 10,000-plus employees. The study revealed that enterprises are active in the cloud, and their virtualization efforts are contributing to broader interest in cloud computing, indicating a shift toward "cloud thinking."
