Shelter-in-place: 451 Research Survey Shows Why Some Database Workloads Remain On Premises

The impact of coronavirus is rapidly disrupting the business world, causing enterprises in multiple industries to rethink their strategic plans. In this report, 451 Research sheds light on the increasing prevalence of a hybrid IT strategy and explains why not all database workloads make it to the cloud.

“While there is a tendency to talk about workloads ‘moving’ from traditional on-premises infrastructure to the cloud, 451 Research’s latest VotE: Data & Analytics survey highlights that only 23% of respondents are actually planning to ‘lift and shift’ their existing on-premises data platform workloads to off-premises cloud environments (although a further 22% are planning to replace them with off-premises alternatives, and 15% plan to re-architect for off-premises environments). In fact, a higher proportion (25%) are planning to retain existing data platform workloads on-premises, but to rearchitect and redesign using cloud-native frameworks.”
