SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Veriflow, the pioneer in intent-based network verification, today published surprising findings revealing a disconnect between network and DevOps/cloud teams involved in the management and oversight of the public-cloud portion of their networks. The new report, “Is the Public Cloud Hiding Business Risk in Plain Sight?” was conducted by Dimensional Research. The findings encapsulate feedback from 337 respondents who directly manage public cloud infrastructure.
Public cloud adoption is growing by double-digit percentages year over year, and the public cloud market is expected to exceed $220 billion by the end of 2019, according to Gartner. However, the survey findings reveal that IT teams are often siloed and do not agree on who is responsible for the deployment and ongoing management of the public cloud network. At the same time, IT teams are struggling with network infrastructure challenges caused by the cloud, such as impaired visibility and more-frequent security threats. Ninety-seven percent of companies report having problems with deploying and managing public clouds. These issues are creating a gathering storm that ultimately puts organizations at financial risk.
“Public cloud deployments are rapidly growing but IT teams do not have the proper visibility to see infrastructure in public cloud environments, which frequently causes costly problems,” said David Gehringer, principal at Dimensional Research. “More concerning is that networking, DevOps and cloud teams are not working together as efficiently as needed to handle rapidly expanding cloud deployments. They recognize that these problems have resulted in a negative impact in multiple areas, and that a new solution is needed to avoid further financial consequences and a descent into turmoil.”
IT teams that have adopted public cloud are operating in disconnected silos. Survey findings reveal that IT teams do not agree on the following issues: who is responsible for the network in public cloud environments, who approves network changes, whether the networking team should be involved in new deployments and how cloud teams perceive networking teams.
IT teams agree that use of public cloud environments has created deployment, management and security challenges. Networking, cloud and DevOps teams all agree that public cloud environments are opening the door to more challenges, resulting in negative impacts in multiple areas.
Issues with public cloud environments are having a negative financial impact on companies. Public cloud implementations have a high frequency of problems that can take significant time to resolve and have a negative impact on businesses. This leads to multiple issues.
“One thing networking, cloud, DevOps and other teams can all agree on is that they need better solutions to provide visibility, predict issues, and understand the impact of new deployments and changes in their public cloud network,” said James F. Brear, president and CEO of Veriflow. “With these capabilities, public cloud networks will become a larger benefit to the business bottom line.”
IT professionals responsible for public cloud-based applications and/or infrastructure were invited to participate in a survey on their company’s use of public cloud infrastructure. The survey was administered electronically, and participants were offered a token compensation for their participation. A total of 337 participants who directly manage public cloud infrastructure completed the survey.
