Cloud computing has helped many enterprises transform their IT practices over the past few years, but experts say that the market is entering the second wave of public, private and hybrid cloud services. Many companies have shifted, but they need to ensure that it is the right service provider and whether they provide the required service or not. Cloud providers are also constantly trying to come up with the best in order to improve their offerings. So, let us look at some of the most cutting-edge cloud computing trends.
- Serverless Computing
Serverless computing gained momentum in 2015 and became quite prominent in 2016 and 2017. The good news is that it will continue to beat the charts for many more years to come. Though the term is serverless computing, it does not mean that servers are not used, it is just that too many machines are not used. Serverless computing can save operational and infrastructural costs as well.
- Big Data Analytics
Similar to the public and private cloud model, many organisations are realising that it may be more beneficial and much simple to combine cloud computing with big data analytics than to choose one over the other. The emergence of big data analytics as a service within the next few years will offer businesses of all sizes an easily attainable and scalable tool for competing in the global marketplace.
- Web-Powered Apps
As competence and scalability are among the primary benefits of cloud computing, then it is only beneficial to start developing cloud-based applications that are compatible with multiple platforms. With cutting-edge initiatives, it will not be long before the Internet becomes the main platform for these applications.
These new trends in cloud computing enable small companies to compete at the same level with big enterprises and the large enterprises are looking to cut costs with their cloud adoption strategies. So, every enterprise whether big or small is likely to benefit from cloud computing.
