AMD will discuss the infrastructure demands and challenges facing businesses deploying cloud computing solutions worldwide, at the Cloud Computing Summit in Abu Dhabi, China Cloud Computing Conference in Beijing and Enterprise Cloud Computing and Virtualisation Conference (ECCV) in London.

Richard Hijer, senior technical advisor of AMD, will discuss how to identify the potential cost saving benefits of cloud computing and its potential pitfalls at Europe's Cloud Computing Summit. Margaret Lewis, software product marketing director of AMD, will also be in the region to provide an end to end view of cloud computing and deployment strategies at the ECCV. Separately, Bob Ogrey, cloud technology evangelist and fellow of AMD's server platform architecture and Brent Kerby, power efficiency strategist at AMD, will be speaking about AMD's cloud computing strategy at the China Cloud Computing Conference. At these events, AMD will be previewing a global cloud computing research study that will be unveiled in its entirety later this quarter.

AMD representatives will present regional highlights stating that in Europe, 37 per cent of cloud customers estimate they store more than Rs.1.12 crore ($250,000) worth of data in the cloud. Also, 42 per cent of businesses considering deploying cloud solutions are doing so as a necessity to reduce IT costs. Lastly, 59 per cent of businesses see security as the primary risk of cloud computing, but only 32 per cent see reliability of their Internet connection as a risk

In Asia-Pacific, 67 per cent of businesses that have moved to the cloud are already seeing business value. There are also 54 per cent of businesses believing that increased efficiency is one of the greatest benefits of cloud computing, more so than hardware cost savings or scalability. It was found out that finance and accounting applications are the applications most commonly found in the cloud, with 57 per cent of respondents indicating they are already hosting these apps in a cloud environment.

"The rise of cloud computing is fundamentally shifting demands on the IT department, but different regions of the world are facing very different cloud challenges," said Patrick Patla, vice president and general manager of the Server and Embedded divisions in AMD. "We are committed to providing the right balance of price, performance and power for all types of cloud deployments around the world and are working closely with partners and customers to ensure organisations are reaping maximum benefits from this new computing model."

AMD said that the full research study reached 1,500 IT decision makers across the United States, Asia-Pacific and Europe, uncovering a wide variety of global perspectives on cloud computing. The information will be fully released later in the second quarter of 2011.
