ActiveState Survey Results: Security biggest barrier to Cloud adoption

July's ActiveState quick poll focused on Cloud adoption, and revealed that developers are still feeling a little 'insecure' about the cloud. Responses revealed that it would probably take both a corporate mandate and better security before most would deploy to the cloud.

What would it take to deploy your app to the cloud?


When asked what the barriers when deploying to public clouds, again respondents ranked security higher than all other issues.

What are the barriers to you deploying your app in the public cloud?


This perception of a lack of security did not keep respondents from seeing real benefits in deploying to the Cloud: automation of scalability, fail over, and provisioning being the most compelling reason for moving to the cloud.



Thanks again to everyone who participated in the survey!
