The Growth Of Cloud Technology

  • December 10, 2018
 

The biggest tech breakthrough in the past decade isn’t what many people would think and that’s because it is something that many of us use every day without even thinking. It isn’t our smartphones, in fact, it isn’t a piece of hardware at all. No, the biggest tech breakthrough in the past decade is actually cloud technology.

     At some point, almost every person that works on or around computer systems has uploaded something to the cloud. Many of us routinely upload and download information to the cloud every day and do so without issue. That is because the cloud platforms that are available to us do what they are supposed to do without fail. Cloud technology is easy to use and easy to understand making it one of the most important tech breakthroughs and one that is here to stay.

     But what about the future of cloud technology? Can it get any better than it is and what will cloud technology growth look like? Let’s take a closer look at the future growth of cloud technology and see what changes will affect us the most.

The Growth Of Cloud Technology

More Users- cloud technology is already being used by businesses all over the world, but we will see that number double as more enterprises will adopt cloud applications, platforms and services.

Increased Spending- we will see an increase in cloud computing spending by more than 6 times the rate of IT spending with almost 50% of IT spending being cloud related.

Increased Growth In Cloud Solutions- with the expected increase in cloud computing growth through 2020, we will also see an increase in the growth of cloud computing solutions including:

  • Software as a Service (SaaS)
  • Platform as a Service (PaaS)
  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
  • Function as a service (FaaS)
  • Backend as a service (BaaS)

Increase In Cloud Storage Capacity- currently, global cloud storage is just under 400 EB (Exabyte) and that number is expected to increase causing cloud storage capacity to grow to well over 1.1 ZB (Zettabyte) by 2020.

Increase In Server-Less Cloud Computing- server-less technology which enables developers to build and run application services without managing any server or infrastructure is expected to grow meaning we will see a growing trend towards Server-less Cloud Computing. This will improve both efficiency and ease of use.
