Cloud Computing: More to Come
Can there be any doubt that cloud computing has now woven its way into the fabric of most IT organizations? It wasn’t but a few years back that the future of cloud computing was in question due to serious and valid concerns about security, control and non-stop availability. But given the continued investments by tech giants like IBM, Google, HP, Amazon and Microsoft—along with advances in reliability, robustness of applications and more—cloud computing has steadily silenced its critics. Short of a global internet meltdown, it looks like it’s here to stay.
In 2016, there is still much to look forward to in the cloud computing space. Certainly the explosion of mobile computing apps has made using the cloud an everyday “must have” for smartphone users. In a few short years, the cloud has wiggled its way into our daily lives to the point where people aren’t wary about using it anymore.
This acceptance has had an impact on most enterprise’s attitudes toward deploying mission-critical applications within the cloud space. While the cost-saving promises have not yet been fully realized, there are advantages that most cloud computing users have enjoyed, including:
- Fast/rapid deployment
- Ease of data sharing
- Mobile device access
- Managed storage and instant scalability
