Welcome to the August issue of the Cloud Hosting eNewsletter, which includes a thought-provoking piece from Pulsant looking at business’ changing requirements of cloud offerings. Interestingly, there is a definite maturity of outlook: we're not, say Pulsant, buying cloud for cloud's sake. Cloud is not seen as an ‘aspirational’ product as it might be by consumers; businesses are turning to its services to gain actual advantage and reap its benefits. They are buying cloud services based on the tasks that the business needs to fulfil.

"We've all been in the industry long enough to know that cloud migration isn't new. Instead, what organisations are focusing on is the way in which cloud is being used within their IT estates, and how they can properly leverage its benefits," says Matt Lovell, CTO, Pulsant. "What we are seeing - and it's supported by the research - is that there's a definite move to use different cloud models and solutions to properly benefit the organisation and maximise their resources and their budgets."
