Western Europe Government: Best Practices for IaaS Cloud Services

This IDC Government Insights study predicts that public and hosted private cloud IaaS adoption will grow in Western European government, particularly as information assurance concerns are being overcome by a combination of increased maturity on the demand side and global cloud suppliers investing in regional datacenter hubs in Europe.

"Governments that want to realize value for money from cloud IaaS should start by identifying the services that are most suitable based on scalability, elasticity, information assurance, and innovation requirements. They must select the most appropriate suppliers and carefully manage the deployment and overall contract relationship," said Massimiliano Claps, Research Director, IDC Government Insights
