Google’s Accelerate State of DevOps Report showed that respondents who use hybrid and multi-cloud rated their organizational performance goals 1.6 times higher than those who do not.
These respondents also performed 1.4 times better in terms of deployment frequency, lead time for changes, time to recover, change failure rate and reliability.
Of all 1,200 respondents, more than half said they use a public cloud, an increase of 5% compared to 2019.
Another 21% said they deploy multiple public clouds, about 21% of respondents said they use data centers or on-premises solutions instead, and 34% said they use hybrid clouds.
Dustin Smith, research lead with Google Cloud’s DevOps Research and Assessment (DORA) team, said: “Based on key findings from previous Accelerate State of DevOps reports, we again used four metrics to classify teams as elite, high, medium or low performers based on their software delivery: deployment frequency, lead time for changes, mean-time-to-restore, and change fail rate. This year we saw that elite performers continue to accelerate their pace of software delivery, increasing their lead time for changes from less than one day to less than one hour.”
