Best Practices for Cloud Computing in South Africa and the Real Business Impact
The uptake of cloud computing services in South Africa over the last few years expanded significantly, with more than % of medium and large enterprises using them.
An even higher proportion of small organisations already use cloud-based services, although most are basic applications such as email and messaging.
The demand for cloud computing services is driven by a need to achieve cost savings as well as the flexibility and scalability advantages that the cloud computing model brings.
The most important enabler of cloud computing comprises the tremendous developments in infrastructure witnessed in the last few years, that have contributed to greater access to bandwidth.
By 2016, close to% of all data centre workloads are expected to be running in cloud environments in the Middle East and Africa.
Enterprises are evaluating their options to migrate from traditional IT environments to cloud deployments. While some workloads have begun to migrate to the cloud, large organisations still choose to retain their mission-critical systems on-site.
