A survey shows that 80 percent of companies are discussing and evaluating cloud-based technologies.

eWeek: According to a new survey by outsourcing vendor TPI, 78 percent of IT managers surveyed said they are discussing and evaluating cloud computing technologies. "The major trend with cloud is rapid adoption among small and medium-size companies and a somewhat more cautious approach to adoption from large enterprise companies," said TPI's Kevin Smilie. "[O]ur recent TPI survey of enterprise clients suggests that companies are beginning to conduct significant planning activities to leverage some of the opportunities that cloud brings and incorporate them into implementation plans for later in 2010 and certainly 2011."

The survey also found that companies were more likely to turn to the cloud for low-risk applications like e-mail, messaging applications, desktop and server virtualization, and storage services.
