Developers Rate IBM Top Private Cloud


IBM has announced that its private test and development cloud was the top choice of developers in Evans Data Corporation's Cloud Development Survey 2010.

Evans Data Corporation's Cloud Development Survey Report examines the concerns, intentions, and current adoption of developers regarding deploying to and developing for public or private clouds. The report covers the full range of cloud computing issues, including: private cloud versus public cloud, private cloud management and data centers, standards and security.

In the survey of over 400 software developers, almost 30% identified IBM as the top Private Cloud provider. Developers indicated that the most important factors in determining which private cloud provider to use are security, reliability and uptime, and proven expertise. The primary benefits of deploying applications in a private cloud are the freedom from maintaining hardware, cost savings, and scalability.

IBM's Smart Business Development & Test Cloud features IBM Rational Software Delivery Services for Cloud Computing, which includes a collection of Rational's products and capabilities.
