New Research: 2018 State of Virtualization in the Cloud

Companies are moving workloads to the cloud in a major way, according to a survey Druva conducted in July and August 2018. 41% of the 170 respondents said they are currently running virtual machines (VMs) in the cloud, which is a 32% increase from last year’s response of 31%. Perhaps even more impressive is that 90% of respondents said they plan to run VMs in the cloud over the coming year.

AWS was the clear winner for market and mindshare among the respondents, with 59% of them preferring AWS over other choices for virtual workloads. Microsoft Azure came in second at 35%. VMware cloud on AWS (VMC) was a strong contributor to AWS’s popularity, as 25 of the 59% were users that would prefer to use VMC versus native AWS.

Here’s a look at some of the most interesting findings from the survey:
