Top Cloud Trends You No Longer Can Ignore in 2019




2018 was an important year for the cloud where
we saw many technological advancements that set new standards for the platform.

The volume of changes made enterprises think about how to use the cloud effectively for their business purposes.

In 2019, businesses will shift their focus
from low-end infrastructure to extracting valuable data and integrating with
innovative services such as blockchain, artificial intelligence, and others.

According to a report, by the end of 2025 more
than 80 percent of enterprises will move to their database to the cloud.

Enterprises will need to right tools and infrastructure along with a dynamic environment for completing the tasks more efficiently.

Here is the list of top trends in
Cloud Technology you no longer can ignore in 2019:

  1. Multi-cloud infrastructures will replace the “one cloud for all” approach.

According to research, more than 20 percent of
the organizations have already started using the cloud-based services, and the
other 80 percent of the workload is running on-premises due to regulatory
requirements.

The cloud technology is still in its early
stages, and as we enter the next phase of the journey, many enterprises will
start following the “one cloud for all” approach.

The cost-effectiveness of the cloud is one of
the primary reason for this digital transformation. However not every workload
should be uploaded on the public cloud. Nowadays enterprises are following the
hybrid multi-cloud approach for integrating the public and private effectively.

A hybrid cloud platform is the combination of
public, private and on-premises cloud infrastructure with the best resources
from different cloud vendors.

2. More
organizations will start using open cloud technology

Most of the top organization have started
using open source cloud technology which helps to choose from more vendors.

The open cloud technology helps businesses in
interoperability of data, tools, and platforms. The projects which are
developed with open technology attracts the larger audience and markets.

In the upcoming years, organizations will get
new opportunities for using open source Kubernetes that supports multiple
services over different cloud environment.

The tools of the open source technology will
help in monitoring, updating and securing databases over time.

3.
Improved Cloud skills and culture

As more and more enterprises start adopting
multiple hybrid cloud technology, there will be a cultural shift in the way
businesses are done.

New teams will be formed with advanced data
integration skillsets, automation experience, API management and many more.

New jobs will be formed, and the existing ones
like cloud project manager, architect, and cloud automation engineer, will
become very common in almost every industry for managing hybrid cloud
platforms.

4.
Cloud Security

Previously, developers and programmers used to develop the application first and then put some security measures to protect the app.

As organizations are using cloud technology to
improve every department, we can see the combination of public, private and
on-premises for security purposes.

Most of the organizations are already handling
10-20 cloud vendors together, which can be an invitation to new vulnerabilities
and problems. It happens due to a lack of control, management, and threat
posture of tools and applications.

To overcome these problems, programmers and developers are implementing security before starting the app development process.

Following the best security practices in every
aspect of application development will provide greater app security, control,
and protection.

5. AWS
and Google on hybrid cloud

Google and Amazon Web Services, i.e., AWS did not have a vast software legacy when they entered the cloud market. Other the other hand, it’s competitors Microsoft and IBM had a successful history of hybrid cloud software.

Hence, very soon Microsoft became the second
leading cloud services provider in the market and it also gave IBM a slight
boost.

Google and AWS are now slowly rising in the
hybrid cloud market. AWS is increasing its on-premises services, and Google is
also not behind in providing the best on-premises cloud services.

If you want to get in-depth knowledge and
understanding of the Amazon web services, then take up an AWS Solution
Architect Certification
training
course which will help you to learn about the architectural principles and
services including EBS, IAM, and others.

6. More
AI-based solutions to minimize human errors

There are hundreds of parts in data centers
such as cooling systems, network, power systems, servers and many more.

Most of them are manually configured and are checked often. However, with the advancement of cloud technology and artificial intelligence, the devices and equipment are continuously monitored.

AI-based systems tirelessly monitor and adjust
the network. It reduces the chances of any human error.

7.
Serverless computing and microservices

There are many advantages of virtualization,
but its only drawback is that it is resource-heavy. It limits the number of VMs
on the primary server and also overloads the operating system.

The solution to the problem is the use of
microservices and serverless computing.

A container or microservice is of just 10MB in
size in comparison of few GB for a complete virtual machine.

As the applications are broken down form large pieces to smaller, modular pieces the containers, and serverless will be more attractive in both public and private cloud.

For the success of serverless and containers,
it’s essential to create application keeping in mind about the cloud and
on-premises systems.

8. The
explosion of edge computing

The continuous expansion of cloud technology
will lead to an increase of edge computing. It will create new opportunities
and will help companies to use its computing power and techniques to scale
their business.

Edge computing helps to expand automation and
decrease the response rate in locations with low-bandwidths.

Hybrid cloud environment will increase the
usage of edge computing, resulting in improved visibility and ability to
examine, save and harvest important data from industrial equipment, cameras,
and others.

9. The
increase of Bare Metal

There has been a significant increase in bare
metal, i.e., no software. You can rent memory, storage capacity, software,
CPUs, and other devices. 

As of now, the most prominent leader of bare
metal hosting is IBM, and Oracle follows it. With the help of bare metal, you
can take your entire computing environment from a particular data center to the
cloud provider without any changes.

Since there are only to major bare metal
vendors, i.e., IBM and Oracle, they want their customers to keep using their
software without shifting to a SaaS provider.

However, many of the software companies are
getting into the bare metal scene including AWS, Rackspace, Equinix, and
others.

10. The
battle of desktops among cloud providers

There is only one vendor which is utilizing the desktop as a means to connect to the cloud, i.e., Microsoft. All the other top cloud providers are more keen on the virtual desktop market.

As Microsoft is ending all support for Windows 7 by January 2020,
that means there will be hundreds of transformation and changes in the year
2019.

Hence, it is advised to start using Windows 10
for managing desktop cloud services or look for other alternatives such as
Google Chromebook and AWS Workspace.

Final
Thoughts

These are some of the amazing trends in Cloud computing which will be very difficult to ignore in the year 2019 and beyond.

Most of the industry experts are saying that
in the upcoming years multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud will rule the market.

Hence, start following these trends to stay
ahead of your competitors and increase your business profit and revenue.
