According to research firm Gartner, the global Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) market for public cloud services grew 37.3% last year to $44.5 billion. This year’s COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent mass move to remote working are accelerating moves to the cloud.
IT decision makers are increasingly seeing the cloud as a digital transformation engine as well as a technology that improves business continuity. Cloud computing also promotes technological agility whilst reducing IT overheads.
The benefits of moving IT to the cloud are persuasive. Research suggests that 67% of enterprise IT infrastructure and software will be cloud-based by the end of 2020 (Forbes). For academic and research institutions, the benefits of the cloud can be even more compelling. The ability to deploy a significant amount of computing resources, often for short periods of time, without the need for large capital outlay is a game-changing innovation for researchers. This need for flexibility however needs to be balanced with the need for security. A significant data breach could be highly damaging for the reputation of any institution.
