According to the '3rd Annual Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Index'- 'Global Governments Eye a Hybrid Cloud Future While Embracing Remote Work';

1. More than three-fourths (82%) of global public sector respondents identify hybrid cloud as the ideal IT operating model for their organization. They’re evolving their infrastructures to get there, with reported plans that call for doubling their hybrid cloud usage within one year and growing their deployments to about 56% penetration within five years, up from just under 13% penetration today.

2. The journey to hybrid cloud requires significant decommissioning of legacy
architecture, and public sector entities have already cut back extensively.
About 22% of public sector organizations exclusively run traditional, non-cloud-enabled datacenters, down from 53%* last year. Over the next five years, the public sector expects a 20-percentage-point drop in legacy datacenter installations and a substantial 43-point increase in hybrid cloud deployments.

3. Cost isn’t the primary driver behind infrastructure change. The public sector’s top motives for modifying its IT infrastructures are to gain greater control of IT resource usage (54%) and to gain the flexibility (50%) and speed needed (44%) to meet business requirements.

4. The global pandemic has raised IT’s profile and fueled cloud adoption. Two-thirds (70%) of public sector respondents said COVID-19 has caused IT to be viewed more strategically in their organizations. In addition, public sector respondents said they increased their hybrid cloud, public cloud, and private cloud investments as a direct result of the pandemic, while the percentage of respondents with remote workers has nearly doubled.

5. More than half of public sector organizations plan to use multiple public clouds. In line with global averages, 30% of public sector respondents are currently running a mixed model of public cloud, private clouds and traditional non-cloud enabled datacenters, the highest percentage of any deployment model. However, 34% also reported currently using more than one public cloud, a number that is expected to grow to 52% within the next 12 months.

6. Security is top of mind for public sector organizations. Public sector respondents identified security, privacy and compliance as the number one factor driving their deployment decisions. Similarly, the majority of respondents in this industry (59%) identified these same factors as the reason for moving applications back on-premises.
