Netflix Shuts Down Last Data Center
Content companies are prime candidates for cloud computing, and Netflix provides a good example.
Netflix is shutting down its last owned data center, making it a leader among large enterprises relying fully on public cloud computing.
Netflix has been 100 percent cloud-based for customer facing systems for some time.
About 12 percent of companies run information technology operations entirely in the cloud, according to a recent survey of 1,500 IT professionals by BetterCloud.
In five years almost 50% of our respondents said they will be moving their IT entirely to the cloud; in 10 years, that number will climb to nearly 70 percent.
Nearly all of those companies are small or medium-sized businesses. By 2022, just slightly more than 20 percent of large enterprise companies are expected to operate entirely in the cloud.
