Clouducation: Interesting reads for August 1-5

The theme for this week’s post should be "all things point to the clouds".  A couple of really interesting studies on the adoption and growth of Cloud computing/ IaaS.

Infrastructure as a Service to Grow to reach $4B by 2015!

 Oh how far we have come! A new research from In-Stat that overall cloud computing, which includes IaaS, SaaS and PaaS will grow by 153% from 2010 to 2015.
Are you guys seeing the same growth? What's your take on the IaaS market?
Health care is becoming the fastest growing vertical for cloud computing
Same research by In-Stat but with a vertical spin. Is this a surprise for anyone? Healthcare going mainstream with cloud computing?

Healthcare, which includes ambulatory healthcare services, hospitals, nursing and residential care facilities, along with social assistance, is a growing part of the U.S. business scene, according to in-Stat, and recent company research “supports a forecast of continued growth, with healthcare spending $518 million on IaaS,”
How Cloud Computing is reshaping the Role of the CIO

An interesting post by Scott Bils on the changing role of the CIO. Does security, compliance and data still play a role? especially with the rise of cloud computing?
"Four disruptive forces are causing executive teams to reconsider how the CIO function will add strategic value in a world where cloud computing, distributed architectures and mobile ubiquity are givens for future competitiveness."

Cloud computing can generate annual savings of U.S. $ 12.3 billion on energy
According to the study sponsored by AT&T, companies plan to accelerate the adoption of cloud computing from 10% to 69% of their IT spending by 2020. It also shows that a company adopting cloud computing can reduce their energy consumption, reduce carbon emissions and investments in IT resources, while increasing operational efficiency.
