FREMONT, CA: Technology is developing at a phenomenal pace and more dynamically than ever before. Cloud computing technology, over the last few years, has grown into an inevitable part of all sectors of business, paving the way for digital transformation. Companies can leverage unheralded flexibility with cloud technology. It offers greater versatility and inexpensive solutions for managing IT systems. The future of cloud computing is being shaped by emerging technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT) and connected devices. By 2025 the datasphere is expected to grow to an incredible 163 zigabytes, which is over a trillion gigabytes. The amount of data being generated is enormous and needs to be stored someplace. And which place better than the cloud.

Everything as a Service (EaaS)

Cloud computing ensures continued growth for all its cloud-based services and solutions. Most of these services have already been well established with Infrastructure, Platform, and Software as a Service (IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS), all of which account for a more significant portion of IT expenditure. Services by Amazon and Google-like Amazon Web Services, Google Apps, Compute Engine, and Microsoft Azure are likely to dominate the future of the cloud service landscape.

NoOps (No Operations)

It refers to a concept wherein an IT environment can become so automated and abstracted from the underlying infrastructure that there is no need for a dedicated team to manage the software in house. Such a scenario would reduce dependency on operational tasks. However, organizations will still need operations. The difference lies in the focus shifting to operating the applications and ensuring the cloud platform is meeting the demands. This involves a model very different than running the data centers and middleware.

Serverless Architecture

The future of cloud computing involves a serverless era. Serverless computing consists of a model in which the platform dynamically determines and manages the allocation of required infrastructure and automatically adjusts the infrastructure to support the application. A majority of time and resources today are invested in building systems that can scale and failover. Google’s serverless architecture interacts with abstracts that work and gives the developer the quickest path from idea to product, running on top of the same technology and processes which Google uses to run applications like Gmail, YouTube, and others.
