This year’s “Private Cloud Overview” survey from Forrester Research tracks almost 50 private cloud service providers that deliver products or services to enterprises. This report focuses primarily on taxonomy and mapping each vendor across three major private cloud categories: pre-integrated converged systems, software-only solutions, and services.

The report says, “Today’s private cloud professional services space falls into four categories:

  • Training
  • Consulting services
  • Reference architectures, and
  • Remote management
  • Each looks to help enterprises build private clouds through educational support and/or cloud integration, management, and process expertise.”

    Describing the cloud consulting vendors such as Torry Harris Business Solutions, the report says, “If you need full hands-on support to build your environment, there are a large number of providers that specialize in just this approach. Some focus on infrastructure integration, while others look at optimizing the business processes, policies, and organizational structure that will be in place once the private cloud is built.”

    While detailing the Private Cloud Vendor Landscape, Forrester lists Torry Harris’ Cloudmatic solution (Cloud Consulting, Advisory and Cloud Migration Services) as falling into the “Consulting” category.
