Executive summary


Cloud adoption was expanding rapidly even before COVID-19. After the pandemic took hold, cloud plans and adoption increased even faster. Cloud trends can guide an organization’s digital business decision processes, vendor and technology selection, and investment strategies. This tenth annual Flexera 2021 State of the Cloud Report (previously known as the RightScale State of the Cloud Report) delves into the details of what respondents had to say to reveal what’s happening with all things cloud—from spend allocation to cost management to strategies. Leveraging this data can help IT professionals plan the next steps of their cloud journey. 
The report explores the thinking of 750 global cloud decision-makers and users about the public, private and multi-cloud market. It shares their current and future cloud strategies, often showing year-over-year (YoY) changes to help identify trends. And it offers perspective on how some trends have changed over the years. The survey was conducted in October and November of 2020.
