Top 5 Technology Trends to Impact the Digital Infrastructure Landscape in 2020

#artificialintelligence

Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company, released its top five technology trend predictions for 2020, which point toward the critical digital transformation that organizations are making to lead in the new digital era. Equinix's expansive footprint across more than 50 global markets, and its position as a leading meeting and interconnection point for ecosystems of networks, clouds, enterprises and nearly 10,000 customers, give it a unique and holistic lens to view critical digital infrastructure trends. Equinix's 2020 technology trend predictions include: There is a seismic shift underway across many industries as businesses are embracing edge computing and hybrid multicloud architectures. Increasingly, businesses are moving computing from centralized data centers to a distributed infrastructure and toward the edge, where data exchange and interconnection between businesses and cloud services are growing at an exponential rate. The advent of edge computing has also become a foundational enabler for other emerging technologies such as 5G mobile communications, which will allow internet of things (IoT) and other edge devices to take advantage of faster connectivity to data and compute resources with single-digit-millisecond network latency.


What's Ahead for Cloud in 2019

Its impact on customer experiences, business processes and models, and workforce innovations was undeniable. We saw more and more use cases where customers started leveraging multiple clouds to enable innovation than ever before. But the landscape continues to change. Here are my thoughts about what's ahead for cloud in 2019. The Kubernetes ecosystem will grow and enable more innovation.

Six Cloud Trends to Watch in 2017 @CloudExpo @NaviSite #Cloud #MachineLearning

While cloud may have formally entered the enterprise in 2006, it's now a reality for nearly every company. The Cloud Era got its start with Software as a service (SaaS) offerings that paved the way for innovations in CRM and email deployments, to create new opportunities for the likes of Salesforce and Microsoft Office 365. Still in its "early stages," cloud now encompasses legacy applications, backups, disaster recovery, security/audit log management and so much more. This year, enterprises will truly reap the full value of cloud-enabled IT-the days of managing infrastructure with people and manual processes are over, and with the support of managed services and DevOps, IT can now focus on innovation, being driven by big data and analytics. A study conducted by Microsoft and 451 Research revealed that a majority of enterprises, 79 percent, work with more than one provider, with 29 percent reporting they work with four or more cloud/hosting vendors.


10 Emerging Cloud Computing Trends To Watch In 2020

#artificialintelligence

Developments in the cloud computing industry move at a pace that can be maddening to follow and impossible to predict. But some big-picture trends that will characterize the market for the next year are coming into focus, even if the technologies that ultimately enable them and vendors that drive them seem constantly in flux and vulnerable to disruption. Many of those emerging cloud computing trends stem from the industry entering a phase of standardization and increased compatibility--a sign of maturity in any tech sector. Cloud infrastructure--public, hosted private and on-premises--is increasingly less siloed, allowing workloads to be more portable and data streams more mobile. That standardization, largely thanks to the open-source movement, is allowing a shift in focus up the stack, with new channel roles emerging to support application-level processes, from enabling artificial intelligence and high-performance computing, to delivering novel SaaSOps and application development services.
