Holding back from the cloud – or can’t get there quick enough? We want to hear why

Tell us whether you’re ecstatic or exasperated, or somewhere in between


Reader survey There is no doubt that more and more applications are being hosted in the cloud. Hyperscalers are seen as the example to follow when it comes to managing infrastructure, while cloud-native organisations dominate the agenda at industry conferences.

But many organisations remain wary of trusting their operations, applications, and data, to the cloud, whether on an all-in or hybrid basis. Others may feel they’ve had their toes burned after taking early steps onto the cloud or decided the reality didn’t quite live up to the promise.

So what’s the truth? Well, we figure the best people to ask are the world’s biggest community of refreshingly forthright tech pros. Which is why we’re asking you to fill in this very discreet survey.

Whether you’ve tried the cloud, liked it, and are never going back on-prem, or have serious concerns whether your legacy applications can ever be lifted and shifted off-prem, we’d love to hear from you.

And if you’ve experimented and decided the cloud’s not quite ready for your prime time, or even went full throttle, only to find yourself crashing down to Earth, well we’d really love to hear about it.

The whole thing should only take a few minutes. Which some would claim is how long it takes to spin up a virtual machine in the cloud. And if you know different, well you’ve just the sort of person we want to hear from, right here. Thanks a lot!
