<Commercial enterprises, with less than 500 employees, seldom have self-built DCs. Most small- and medium-sized enterprises deploy their services on a public cloud and are most likely to continue to using this in the future as their main service mode.> That makes sense. It is far more efficient in terms of time and labor, not to mention more cost-effective, for those companies to deploy services in the cloud than to try to build their own infrastructure for them.

Re: trending
We still see most companies in a tradition mode while telcos are a bit quicker to head to the cloud.  The transformation is driven but cost and workforce as well as the need for new streams of revenue.  We are seeing a fundamental shift in the business model in the average telco.

Re: trending
Yes--but with the recent hack @ Yahoo that affected for instance millions of BT customers in the United Kingdom, the issue of security needs to be at the forefront--and in Yahoo's case, since it happened back in 2014, it is even more disturbing.

How to mitigate it through the various phases has to be of concern to all--right?

@mpouraryan I agree. Security concerns must be addressed, and the time to do that is before the security breach rather than just attempting to lock barn doors after the horse are taken.

Wonder how much of the "phase" structure is just chronology?
In phase 1 of pictures of vehicles, artists used oils to make pictures of sailing vessels which people hung on walls. In phase 2, airbrushes and pictures of automobiles were introduced. Eventually artists moved to phase 3, animations of imaginary spacecraft. In each phase people continued to make pictures of vehicles using the methods of the older phase as well

My point here is that we may also be looking at 3 different processes, some of which started at different times, and that the only thing they've all really go in common is the cloud architecture -- and the cloud architecture is mostly an artifact of where we draw boundaries around economic entities, which is also arbitrary and more an artifact of history than reality.

It seems, though, that there is always talk about it--yet the hackers seem to somehow overcome the "barriers".    The Yahoo Story, I hope, is a story for all to learn from--no doubt.

3 Phases of Cloud Computing
It is easier for telco companies to implement cloud computing because most are innovative and continually work to expand their products and services while increasing revenue.

Non-telco companies don't seem to know how to implement the cloud and maintain their business standing.


Some IT companies using cloud data center and cloud 1.0 and 2.0, however most companies shy away from cloud computing because it is still perceived as a new technology that many simply don't understand, therefore they will not adopt it.

I think it's been pretty beneficial to the SMB market the emergence of open source cloud technology. The only barrier now for those organizations is the ability to leverage them. This takes talent that often is not working in smaller outfits. Hopefully this will change as generations and attitudes start to shift.

Re: 3 Phases of Cloud Computing
Good points!

I also think that when companies get more familia with the cloud they will start incorporating it more into their daily use. Many businesses are just cautious about using something they know so little about.

Good point. These non telco companies seem to keep up with their business going impressively. Haven't heard of instances where companies are loosing business just because they are not cloud based yet.
