StratoGen Reports Huge 2nd
Quarter Growth in Private Cloud Deployments. Is the
Cloud Changing the way we View IT?

StratoGen today reported an 82% growth in private cloud
deployments in the 2nd quarter as organisations focused
on moving their entire IT infrastructure to the cloud. Despite the
recent high profile outages of some cloud providers, IT managers
are pushing forward with ever more ambitious migration

Mark Lewis, Business Development Manager said “Business
confidence in the cloud has far exceeded our expectations in recent
months. We’ve seen more and more companies taking on complex cloud
migration projects in a bid to enhance service levels and
performance. In a relatively short time IT managers have embraced
the cloud concept and are now looking to virtualize their entire
legacy infrastructure.”

Cloud hosting is set to account for 80% of all web hosting by
2020, according to industry experts. However, the risk to IT
departments is large and growing as a multitude of hosting
companies build clouds with little or no experience, selling into a
market with no track record.

“We are delighted to see these growth figures, and there is no
doubt now that cloud has had a breakthrough year in 2011. However,
there continues to be a lack of transparency amongst cloud
providers which makes selecting the right hosting company extremely
difficult. In particular, very few publish specifications of their
platform or the service levels they have achieved. If organisations
are moving their entire IT function to the cloud then these are
questions which need to be answered” commented David Elliott,
Technical Director.

StratoGen provide href="">cloud
hosting environments in the form of virtual datacentres, which
facilitate private cloud deployments. Within each virtual
datacentre organisations can easily build and deploy virtual
machines, routed networks and firewalls using a powerful web based
portal or API.
