January 2016


Welcome to the January Cirrostratus Group Newsletter.


It's that time of year when 2016 cloud predictions are available. I've included several in this newsletter along with a new private cloud report.


Here is a great resource from Network World listing out all the best Cloud Computing conferences in 2016.


I am always interested in your plans for developing and offering cloud applications. Let me know what you're working on.

Cloud Predictions
Driving on an empty open asphalt road through the green agricultural fields at idyllic sunny day.  Business concept for the new year 2016.

It's always great to read the predictions that come out this time of year. Sounds like an exciting year for cloud computing!
Private & Hybrid Clouds

Forrester has just released their new private cloud Wave report. Red Hat did very well as did IBM, VMWare and HP Enterprise. Although I believe that many organizations build private clouds for the wrong reasons I think there is a place for them in large enterprises. Likewise hybrid clouds also provide a way to have a flexible infrastructure and the new Forrester Wave report on hybrid clouds has also recently come out and Red Hat,IBM and VMWare did well but RightScale was the overall leader.
