The cloud computing technology seems to have another rapid growth this year. But, along with the rapid growth, it is evolving at a fast pace too. With the help of the cloud computing technology, all the businesses have been able to continue their functioning thus, enabling this technology to play a much larger role in the future.
As per CloudTech, public cloud spending is expected to grow from US$229 billion in 2019 to US$500 billion in 2023, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.3%.
By the end of 2021, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and Alibaba are expected to grow yet bigger. It has also been expected that nearly 60% of the companies will leverage the containers on the public cloud and approximately 25% of the developer will use serverless.
Since the cloud computing market is making several advancements in the industrial sector; here are the top 3 trends to watch out for in 2021:
The most necessary update in the cloud computing system is the technology that implements the functions in the cloud which is called serverless computing. Enterprises rely on the cloud computing technology as it helps in providing the space to work on core products without the pressure to operate or manage servers.
Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, is completely in favor of serverless computing as he believes this to not only respond and focus on back-end computing but also become the key to the imminent future for distributed computing. Serverless was amongst the top 5 fastest growing PaaS Cloud Services of 2020, as per the Flexera 2020 State of the Cloud report.
Hybrid cloud joins providers
Choosing between public, private, or hybrid cloud environments, has thus proved to be various organizations as they offer various advantages when it comes to flexibility, performance, security, and compliance.
Hybrid cloud benefits include speed, control, and security. When compares in terms of speed, it optimizes the network to reduce the latency and speeds up the data. For control, the companies using cloud computing can customize their hybrid cloud model, optimize it, and adjust it according to their needs.
To satisfy multi-cloud demands, better data sharing and access between partners should be implemented.
Virtual cloud desktops
A virtual cloud desktop refers to the software requirements of a device being fully managed by cloud service providers that enable the users to have a screen and some basic hardware while the rest of the processing power will be seamlessly handled by cloud-based services.
The consumers making use of the virtual cloud desktops will be able to pay on cloud usage, eliminating costs, update the existing hardware, and disposing of the redundant computing equipment.
This model of computing, generally known as the desktop-as-a-service, has been offered by Amazon via the Workspaces platform and Microsoft with Windows Virtual Desktop. Google also offers functionality through its Chromebook devices. Furthermore, with the help of this, the efficiency is increased as it ensures everyone is using up-to-date, synchronized technology.
