AUSTIN, TX - September 22, 2010 - Zenoss Inc., a leading provider of dynamic service assurance products for public, private and hybrid clouds and corporate sponsor of Zenoss Core, today announced the release of the 2010 Virtualization and Cloud Computing Survey. Based on input from over 200 organizations the study found flexibility to be the leading driver for virtualization and cloud computing adoption use, while security was cited as the largest concern. The survey was conducted to help identify current trends in virtualization and cloud computing utilization and to collect input for addressing the IT management demands of those users.
"Cloud and virtualization technologies are impacting IT architecture in an unprecedented way, and while the technologies develop it’s equally important to provide complementary tools that provide visibility and management capabilities for the modern datacenter." said Mark Hinkle, VP of Community at Zenoss, "This survey provides data on real enterprise usage trends so we can develop software that helps users fully understand and manage their virtual infrastructure.”
