Of the cloud providers, AWS and Azure are now tied neck-to-neck in terms of the audience’s best choice for cloud resources.


  • 50% of the audience still continue to rely on traditional data centers for parts of their business
  • Only 13% believe the cloud has delivered on its promised of cost savings and technology delivery
  • Over 50% also don’t know exactly what type of infrastructure they have in the cloud
  • 80% believe the cloud is expensive or getting more expensive
  • 20% have already or plan to roll back their cloud workloads back onto a traditional on-premises infrastructure
