Healthcare providers slowly embrace benefits of hybrid cloud

February 13, 2019 / Clare Hopping

The healthcare sector is increasingly adopting hybrid cloud environments, although it’s been a slow process so far, with just 19% of healthcare providers currently taking advantage of mixed public and private cloud infrastructure.Nutanix’s healthcare Enterprise Cloud Index Report predicted that adoption would rise to 37% in the next two years as healthcare organisations realise the benefits hybrid environments can bring, specifically when considering the protection of sensitive patient data and meeting regulatory compliance.A third of healthcare businesses surveyed said security and compliance were the primary reasons they chose a particular cloud environment, although compatibility across applications was also a priority for more than half of organisations.
