Research and Markets: Small and Medium-sized Business Cloud Market in the US 2012-2016

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/d7jdgn/small_and) has announced the addition of the "Small and Medium-sized Business Cloud Market in the US 2012-2016" report to their offering.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Small and Medium-sized Business Cloud market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 18.45 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the reduced costs of the cloud approach. The SMB Cloud market in the US has also been witnessing the growing demand for public cloud services. However, the problems in integration and interoperability could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The key vendors dominating this market space are Amazon.com Inc., Google Inc., IBM Corp., Microsoft Corp., Rackspace Hosting Inc., Salesforce.com Inc., and Verizon Communications Inc.

The other vendors mentioned in the report are ATandT Corp., BMC Software Inc., CA Inc., Citrix Systems Inc., Computer Sciences Corp., Dell Inc., EMC Corp., Hewlett Packard Co., Oracle Corp., Red Hat Corp., and VMware Inc.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Data Centers team said: ''Public cloud services are finding higher prominence among the cloud-based application services. Public cloud services require lower capital expenses and are available at lower costs compared to private cloud hosting. Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) have a lower budget for operations and prefer public cloud services to meet their business requirements. The pay-per-use model for billing makes it feasible for the SMBs to adopt the solutions as they are liable to pay only for what they use. Public cloud services can be scaled up or down according to the requirements of the end-users at a faster pace compared to private cloud services.''

Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addressed the challenges of scaling document repositories to this level; architectural approaches for coordinating data; search and storage technologies, Solr, and Amazon storage and database technologies; the breadth of use cases that modern content systems need to support; how to support user applications that require subsecond response times.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
