Veeam Partners With N2W Software to Provide AWS Availability Solutions. Veeam Software presented a new availability solution for Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS), which it developed in partnership. Veeam Availability can help enterprises transition to multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud environments. It provides agentless backups and recovery of AWS instances.

According to a report, the ‘Vast majority’ of enterprise workloads are still on-premises. This was shortly after DatacenterDynamics asked “When will cloud kill in-house facilities?” According to a new report, “the vast majority” of enterprise IT workloads are stored in colocation and enterprise-owned datacenters. According to the Uptime Institute’s seventh edition of its ongoing report series, the percentage of workloads that are running in enterprise-owned and managed datacenters has remained stable at 65 percent since 2014. According to Uptime Institute, a consulting organization that focuses on business-critical infrastructure, “On average, respondents report nearly two-thirds (23%) of their IT assets are currently deployed within their own datacenters. With 22 percent deployed in colocation, multi-tenant datacenter providers and 13 percent in the cloud,” a statement was published today. In many ways, the new study is in line with Interxion’s DatacenterDynamics article. Both agree that the shift to cloud-based infrastructure from running workloads in on premises datacenters is continuing apace. Fray’s article stated that 90 percent of datacenters owned by enterprises in 2005. However, research firm IDC predicts that this will change to 50-50 by 2020. Fray stated that by 2021 there will be 15% less datacenters than 2015 due to the abandonment of in-house facilities. The Uptime Institute survey confirmed that most IT organizations are shifting some of their workloads to cloud computing, but not at an increasing rate. Uptime Institute stated that the survey results reflect several key trends which are acting as a powerful catalyst to change within the industry. Matt Stansberry, an executive, stated that “increased performance at processor level, further expansion in server virtualization and the adoption cloud computing have all created an IT base that is very different from the ones seen just five years back.” “Employer-owned datacenters have remained an integral part of this transformation. We encourage datacenter and IT professionals not to lose sight of the business aspects of managing their IT foundation. They should focus on creating repeatable processes that make it run efficiently, and then adopting new technologies and solutions as the business requires. The survey also included the following highlights, as listed by Uptime Institute:

Strong 2017 datacenter budgets Nearly 75 percent of companies have increased their datacenter budgets or remained the same in 2017 as they were in 2016. Redundancy is being replaced by IT resilience. A majority of companies (68%) rely on IT-based resilience. They rely on live application failover in case of an outage thanks to an…
