Chinese firms take hybrid approach to cloud

Staff writer  |   January 09, 2013
Taking a hybrid approach that supports traditional and cloud-based IT solutions is key to business cloud adoption in China according to a report.
The Strategy Analytics Business Cloud Strategies (BCS) service report, Chinese organizations are moving to cloud computing due to expectations of superior scalability and other benefits.
However, the pace of cloud adoption is affected not only by security concerns which represent the top reason for not moving apps to the cloud for every country surveyed but also reliability concerns which is more of a concern in China than in all but one of the other countries surveyed.
 “Chinese organizations are investing in moving applications and infrastructure to public and private clouds,” commented Mark Levitt, director of Business Cloud Strategies research at Strategy Analytics.  “However, continued reliance on traditional on-premise solutions for key business workloads due to reliability and security concerns requires cloud service providers and product vendors in China to fully support hybrid cloud and non-cloud environments.”
Andrew Brown, Director of Enterprise Research at Strategy Analytics, added that “cloud product and service providers that want to be successful in China need to demonstrate how clouds can actually enhance security, reliability and mobility for Chinese organizations.”
