When they do so, their preference is to use a dedicated cloud IaaS (previously referred to as local cloud as a service) option.</P><P>Hybrid and dedicated cloud represent the next frontier for OEM vendors and public cloud services vendors alike. Each is approaching it from a unique perspective and, accordingly, providing differentiation.</P><P>Customers have many selection criteria for dedicated cloud and dedicated cloud IaaS, but security stands out as a top priority. Overall, customers are choosing these platforms in search of business value and cost savings, and while the most popular deployment option is within their own datacenters, edge locations, colocation facilities, and telcos are also in play.</P><P>IDC surveyed 600 respondents from five countries, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, China, and India in July 2021.</P> IDC Survey Fri, 24 Sep 2021 04:00:00 GMT Chris Kanaracus, Dave McCarthy, Heather West, PhD Google Cloud Launches its Supply Twin Platform https://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=lcAP48259321&utm_medium=rss_feed&utm_source=alert&utm_campaign=rss_syndication <P>Google Cloud Platform (GCP) has announced the launch of its Supply Chain Twin (SCT) solution that aids in creating end-to-end visibility within the value chain.
