APEJ Hosted Private Cloud Forecast, 2014-2019
According to Chris Morris, associate vice president for Cloud Services Research in APEJ, the market currently has some key driving forces.

He adds "cloud workload profiles are changing — they are more complex, mission-critical — and they now require long-term hosting. Early workloads tended to be short-term, but with increased commitment to cloud via the HPC models, customers expect that the contracts they sign to be very similar to IT outsourcing contracts."
