Most public and private clouds have started using Linux containers, which ultimately creates a challenge for companies offering microservices. This will enable integration of computing, networking, and virtualization functionality in all hardware systems. Serverless computing makes cloud computing even easier by taking a software developer for away from infrastructure so that they can thoroughly concentrate on building code for single functions. The aforementioned cloud computing trends offer cost-effective, improved cloud monitoring solutions.

Five cloud computing predictions for 2018: Containers, AI, and custom clouds


Just a few years ago, not many predicted cloud computing would reach the heights we've seen in 2017 – 79 percent of companies now run workloads in the cloud (split almost evenly between public and private clouds). With the cloud bar constantly being raised, where do we go from here? Here are five predictions for the future of cloud computing in 2018.

Five Common Cloud Misconceptions

Forbes - Tech

There are deep-rooted misconceptions about what the cloud is and where it is headed. This article corrects some of these common misconceptions. Misconception No. 1: The Cloud Is A Place In The Sky Most people associate the word "cloud" with the services provided by public clouds such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure, but actually, this is not the case. The best way to think about the cloud is as an experience. It can be from the public cloud or from private clouds in your own data center or a hosted data center.

How the Cloud Has Evolved Over the Past 10 Years - DATAVERSITY


Click here to learn more about Gilad David Maayan. Over the years, cloud computing has turned from an innovative concept into a disruptive endeavor. Today, cloud computing is a booming industry in which organizations and researchers continue to push the boundaries of what is possible and provide new and improved solutions for critical problems. This article briefly examines some of the most important events in the history of cloud computing and calls out four of the most important cloud trends developing today. Although many think of cloud computing as a relatively recent concept, in some ways it can be traced back as far as the mid-1940s.

Public Cloud Trends in 2019 and Beyond


In recent years, cloud computing technology has changed the way many companies handle IT. Using the public cloud computing model, IT departments have the option to pay-as-they-go while rapidly spinning up services, applications, or instances in a cloud provider's data center, scaling them up and down as demand changes. But how prevalent is public cloud use among businesses, how much will usage continue to grow, and how will cloud-centric technologies continue to evolve? We surveyed more than 450 IT decision makers in organizations across North America and Europe to understand how businesses utilize different public cloud deployment models (e.g., IaaS, PaaS, SaaS), what types of workloads and services are running in public clouds, and which emerging cloud trends are on the rise. The percentage of business applications, services, and workloads running in public clouds is expected to double in the next one to two years.
