Cloud computing a 'natural evolution of virtualisation'

Cloud computing a 'natural evolution of virtualisation'

Cloud computing is a "natural evolution of virtualisation" that will lead to cost-saving benefits when it is fully deployed over the coming year.

That is according to Dr John Bates, chief technology officer of Progress Software, who said that firms will only get the full benefit when they use it across the company.

Last month, the Centre for Economics and Business Research reported that around £148.7 billion will be generated across Europe's largest five economies if they continue to adopt cloud computing.

Furthermore, the UK alone could benefit to the sum of £25.15 billion if cloud is used more by businesses across the country.

Dr John Bates added that using cloud is essential to those looking to save money in technology departments.

"Cloud computing is simply a natural evolution of virtualisation, service-oriented architecture and utility computing," he said.

"Only when cloud technology is fully deployed in the enterprise space in 2011 will organisations start to witness the cost-saving benefits."
