Over half of M&E workloads will be hosted in the Cloud by 2020

M&E companies working in the Cloud expected to increase by over 20 per cent by 2020

The media and entertainment sector is expected to host 54 per cent of its workloads in the Cloud by 2020, according to a new report from Cloud-computing software company Nutanix.

The company’s Enterprise Cloud Index found almost 20 per cent more M&E companies expect to be running in the cloud by 2020. The current figure stands at 32 per cent.

The report also revealed that, in the media, leisure and entertainment sector specifically, 32 per cent of IT decision makers envision that all of their organisation’s application workloads will be in the hybrid cloud in the next one to two years. The findings also revealed that application mobility across any cloud is a top priority for 97 per cent of respondents – with 88 per cent of respondents saying it would “solve a lot of my problems.”

Other key findings of the report include:

  • Security is top of mind for determining workloads: 71 per cent of respondents surveyed for the report ranked data security and regulatory compliance as the top factor in determining where to provision workloads.
  • EMEA is expected to surpass the Americas with hybrid cloud adoption: UK businesses, in particular, plan to decrease data centre workloads by more than half in the next two years, and double use of hybrid clouds.
