Abstract: Cloud computing is one of the most discussed IT trends of this decade, and rightly so. This paper provides an executive summary of cloud computing over the past few years and expected ratio of cloud usage in the next five years. The results are collated from responses of several individuals as to their usage and preferences for infrastructure, virtualization, cloud investments and other cloud computing technologies. What differentiates this paper is its focus on analyzing and quantifying the effects of the migration of application workloads to cloud environments. This measurement enables us to estimate better the magnitude and longevity of cloud impacts and to understand the derivative impacts on existing technologies. We introduce the paper with the report showing the deployment of cloud computing in the world. Then the factors influencing and affecting the adoption of cloud computing are discussed. We also discuss the impact of cloud computing on IT manageability and cloud investments. The purpose of this study is to get firsthand accounts of companies’ use of cloud computing and to quantify the potential, financial and environmental benefits that can be attained from this technology.
