5 Ways Cloud Computing Will Change This Year

Multicloud strategies reached new levels of adoption in 2018, with a recent survey from Virtustream finding that 86 percent of enterprises are turning to a multicloud approach . But despite considerable adoption, multicloud’s prominence is likely to grow even further in 2019 as organizations try to avoid vendor lock-in, granting themselves greater flexibility in deploying the most relevant cloud technology across different departments and functions. While a multicloud approach offers the added bonus of improving ROI, the aspects that are most appealing to enterprises are increased performance and autonomy. A multicloud approach permits organizations to deploy a mix of cloud apps to suit their needs across the business, while at the same time technologies such as Kubernetes can be used to containerize and deploy applications across different cloud providers when necessary.

The Shift from Automation to AI in the Cloud The increasing size and complexity of cloud deployments mean that IT teams must now pay careful attention to where and how the cloud runs. As such, there has been a widespread shift to the automation of monitoring, resource allocation and troubleshooting within the cloud. Upscaling this automation of processes into true, adaptable artificial intelligence is the next step, one that will likely take hold in 2019, arising from the fluid nature of cloud use. The rise of a multicloud approach, alongside the fear of vendor lock-in, has resulted in less static cloud strategies, meaning businesses will need to embrace adaptable process automation in order to sustain multicloud infrastructures. Concepts such as autohealing are of undeniable value to any cloud team, but without truly adaptable AI, it will be increasingly difficult for them keep up within the shifting complexity of the cloud landscape.

Major Public Cloud Providers Will Differentiate In some ways, 2019 will be business as usual for the major public cloud providers . The current Infrastructure as a Service model is well entrenched in today’s businesses, and providers welcome any new technology that drives CPU and RAM consumption. However, with multicloud becoming the norm, the major players will have to prove their worth to an enterprise’s IT strategy more than ever before . To do this, major cloud providers will look to differentiate themselves based on their strengths. For example, Google will likely focus on its AI credentials, while Microsoft will zero in on its workload migration capabilities. This differentiation will be important for the incumbents as it could be the year they come under increasing pressure from other public cloud players. IBM ’s acquisition of Red Hat signals potential competition in the cloud space, while companies outside the U.S. continue to improve their capabilities locally, undoubtedly with an eye on international expansion.
