The move to cloud is continuing, with more managed service providers (MSPs) noting a shift by customers to take more workloads off-premise.
According to research from Kaseya, as many as 75% of client workloads will be cloud-based over the next three years, and that shift is fuelling activities in the channel. That figure represents a 25% increase compared to when the same question was asked of the channel last year.
The firm found that almost all (95%) MSPs are looking to exploit opportunities that are emerging around cloud integration. As it stands, 90% of MSPs are already in a position to offer cloud-based infrastructure design and management.
The research highlighted some of the stumbling blocks that could be holding customers back, with it clear that security remains a concern and that more user education is needed if the digital transformation shift is to hit its potential.
