Cloud computing is a fast-moving technology with constantly emerging new trends and technologies. It has been around for many years now and is only getting more and more traction as it goes.

Need for cloud computing services will increase

Gartner forecasts that Public Cloud revenues will increase to a total of $ 206.2 billion in 2019 by 17.3 percent. The cloud-based services like SaaS, PaaS, & IaaS are gaining popularity worldwide. More companies are demanding these services because of the simplicity and flexibility of these services.

Let’s see more of what’s in the cloud world for 2019

  • Hybrid cloud computing
  • Serverless Computing
  • Automation
  • Security and Compliance
  • Backup and DR

Hybrid cloud computing solutions will be the best bet

Hybrid cloud is a cloud computing environment that uses a mix of on-site, private cloud and third- party, orchestrated public cloud services between both platforms. Hybrid cloud enables organizations to leverage public cloud services without transferring all their data to a third-party data center. This offers great flexibility in computing tasks while maintaining vital components within the firewall of the company.

Serverless Computing will gain popularity

Serverless Computing is becoming increasingly popular. The uniqueness of Serverless Computing is its ability to survive without physical machines and system software. It is a process used by cloud clients requesting a container Platform-as-a-service (PaaS). The cloud provider offers different platforms, a variety of useful tools for app design and data processing and much more. The client does not have to rent/purchase servers in advance to set them up.

Automation becomes essential

With the adoption of clouds at unprecedented rates, organizations will have to manage more and more cloud applications and data. This turns the sysadmins jobs into time-consuming with repetitive tasks which delay the availability of the workload. Automating the cloud tasks will eliminate the repeated and manual processes for the deployment and management of workloads. When properly implemented, cloud automation saves time and money for the IT team. It also results in fewer errors, because companies can build more predictable and reliable workflows.

Security and Compliance

Technology empowers companies with unlimited innovation opportunities, but security remains a frequently neglected concern. With the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), security now requires even more attention and compliance in the cloud. Yes, companies must ensure that their data practices are safe and compliant.

In 2019, cloud computing will firmly be the foundation of the company application platforms for tomorrow. As cloud services become increasingly common, many companies have started using services such as Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive to hold important data. Not only companies but even individuals use cloud services like Dropbox to store their important files. The major reason why the cloud is chosen and used by millions of more users is, everybody is certainly concerned about keeping their information private and secure.

Since we all benefit from the cloud, we can’t forget one thing – our data. When we use software-as-a-service (SaaS), we are responsible for our data and must ensure that it is properly accessed and the underlying application and infrastructure components are not misconfigured.

Backup and DR

Strong security is a key factor in any public, private and hybrid cloud implementation. Hence, backup & disaster recovery are crucial factors and will be a major concern for all companies. Reports show that 60 percent of companies lose data because they do not have a fully documented DR plan. It is therefore important for the customers to understand the difference between simple backups, replication of data and a comprehensive RTO / RPO in a DR plan complementing the Business Continuity Plan (BC).

Public cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services( AWS), Google Cloud or Microsoft Azure are responsible for infrastructure security and availability, while customers are responsible for data protection and compliance.

Whether you simply intend to move your workloads from a data center to a cloud-native architecture or you’re already reaping the benefits of a multi-cloud architecture,

… the question remains the same:

Is your cloud infrastructure safe with proper security and backup solutions?
