Research and Markets(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3d1a48/cloud_development) has announced the addition of the "Cloud Development Survey 2009 v.2" report to their offering.

The Cloud Development Survey Report examines the concerns, intentions and current adoption of developers regarding deploying to and developing for public or private clouds. The report covers the full range of Cloud Computing issues, including: Private Cloud vs. Public Cloud, Private cloud management and data centers, standards and organizations, security, wireless Cloud Services, tool use, licensing, languages for use in the Cloud, and applications that will move first to the Cloud.

Conducted annually, 500+ developers

Executive Summary:

Sixty-one percent of developers in the recent Cloud Development Survey report that at least some of their IT resources will move to the public cloud within the next year. However, over 87% say half or less of their resources will move, according to the in-depth survey of over 400 software developers conducted in November/December 2009. Thus the hybrid cloud is set to dominate the coming IT landscape.

"The hybrid Cloud presents a very reasonable model, which is easy to assimilate and provides a gateway to Cloud computing without the need to commit all resources or surrender all control and security to an outside vendor "said Janel Garvin, CEO of Evans Data."Security and government compliance are primary obstacles to public Cloud adoption, but a hybrid model allows for selective implementation so these barriers can be avoided."

The survey of software developers examines various aspects of Cloud development including: timelines for public and private cloud adoption, obstacles and perceived benefits of Cloud development, collaborating and developing in the cloud, tools and architectures for cloud development, virtualization in the private data center, and much more.

Highlights include:

  • MySQL is the preferred database for use in the public cloud cited by over 55% of the developers
  • Almost two-thirds (64%) expect their cloud apps to extend to mobile devices
  • VMWare is the favorite hypervisor vendor or use in a virtualized private cloud (28.6%) followed by Microsoft and IBM

Key Topics Covered:

  • DEMOGRAPHICS
  • MOVING INTO THE CLOUD
  • STRUCTURE OF THE CLOUD
  • DEVELOPING IN THE CLOUD
  • DEVELOPMENT TOOLS
  • CLOUD OBSTACLES AND GOVERNMENT INHIBITORS
  • PRIVATE CLOUD
  • PUBLIC CLOUDS
