Know these future trends when it comes to cloud computing.
Cloud computing is changing businesses in many ways. Whether it is the way they store their data or how they protect their secure information, cloud computing is benefitting all businesses in every sector.
Smart businesses are always looking for the most innovative ways to improve and accomplish their business objectives. When it comes to cloud technology, more and more businesses are realizing the benefits this technology can provide them and are beginning to seek more cloud computing options to conduct their business activities. With the multitude of future technology trends in cloud computing, companies in every sector are benefitted by the opportunities cloud technology offers.
Future Trends in Cloud Computing
Growth in Cloud Services Solutions
Cloud computing’s future growth all began when the growth of infrastructure as a service, IaaS, and platform as a service, PaaS, expanded the number of cloud solutions available in public and private sectors. As IaaS and PaaS continue to be used worldwide to achieve diverse goals, we will see these solutions as the most deployed cloud services around the world. Cisco predicts that SaaS, software as a service, solutions will account for more than 60% of all cloud-based workloads this year. They also predict that PaaS and IaaS solutions will increase throughout 2018. Any business looking to simplify their operations and make services easier to access for customers will most likely move toward cloud services solutions.
Increased Storage Capacity
A huge aspect affecting the future of cloud computing is the amount of storage cloud computing will offer companies and individuals. This growth is because many businesses are adopting cloud technology as a huge part of doing business. It is predicted that providers will bring more data centers online with larger-capacity storage equipment throughout this year. Cisco estimates the storage capacity of the cloud will double this year alone. With this increased storage, more businesses will be able to store large data sets and perform analytics using cloud computing. Being able to perform analytics on this massive amount of data will allow companies to gain valuable insights into customer behavior, human systems, and strategic financial investments, just to name a few.
Introduction of the Internet of Everything (IoE)
Most of us have heard the buzzword, internet of things, IoT. With continuous innovations in real-time data analytics and cloud computing, we will see the newest technology buzzword, internet of everything, be used more often as 2018 progresses. Cloud computing will play a major role in the way IoE develops as it relies heavily on machine to machine communications, data, processes and the way humans interact with things in their environment. A major trend we will see this year is the significant role cloud computing will play in IoE’s ability to simplify all interactions.
Enhanced Internet Quality
The quality of the internet has been getting immensely better every year since it was created. 2018 is expected to be no different, as the amount of data generated and stored around the world increases. Customers today already expect high-quality, fast-loading services and apps and this expectation will enhance network quality and cloud computing. This high-quality expectation will also lead businesses to upgrade their platforms and services to be more responsive to the needs of their customers. As the quality of the internet is enhanced, IoT and IoE industries will benefit a great deal from the faster network speeds and the ability to receive and deliver data more efficiently in real time.
Cloud Solutions to Security Challenges
One of the most important cloud computing trends 2018 will see is the increased solutions the cloud will bring to security. 2017 saw the most cyber-attacks ever recorded in the history of the internet and 2018 should be no different. Many experts predict 2018 will see more individual and state-sponsored attacks aimed at undermining cloud infrastructure security. Cyber-attacks are also becoming more sophisticated which means anyone in charge of their company’s security will need to become more sophisticated in the way they detect and prevent these attacks. Cloud services will be able to help companies with their security measures by offering managed security services.
