Developers select Google, IBM as top cloud providers: Evans Data survey

40% of developers select Google as the public cloud leader and 30% identified IBM as the top private cloud provider.

By CBR Staff Writer

Over 40% of developers selected Google as the public cloud leader, while 30% identified IBM as the top private cloud provider, according to new Evans Data survey.

Janel Garvin, CEO of Evans Data, said that most developers expect to be in a hybrid situation going forward with respect to application deployment in the cloud.

"And these two vendors are perceived of as best filling the two main requirements for either Public or Private clouds; i.e., security and reliability.

"With no other vendors even close in perceived leadership, it’s likely that we’ll see IBM and Google dominating the cloudscape for the foreseeable future."

The survey also revealed that developers also feel that it is very important to be able to move applications between public and private clouds.

Evans Data said that over 80% feel that it is important for cloud providers to give 100% backward compatibility as the cloud infrastructure matures; and 60% are concerned with government geographical restrictions with Cloud deployments.
