From a May 2012 survey of global companies, it was found that on average, only 28% of Oracle database deployments are on virtualized servers. The benefits of running Oracle on virtualized servers include quicker application upgrades, easier disaster recovery, and lower power and cooling expense.

This month's final offering from Dick Csaplar, "The UK: Early Adopter of Cloud Computing," indicates that the UK is adopting Public Cloud computing to a larger degree and across more dimensions than companies in the US or the rest of the world. Using data gathered from UK respondents to the Aberdeen Business Review survey, it was found that an investment in Public Cloud computing is a higher priority for companies from Great Britain. In addition, data indicate that UK companies store a higher percentage of their corporate data in the Public Cloud, run a higher percentage of their corporate applications as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), and have a higher percentage of their computing platforms outsourced to the Public Cloud than US companies or others across the globe.
