Cloud computing solutions have transformed many businesses over the last five years, but experts believe that the market has something more to explore, may be called as a second wave. The cloud market will acquire a faster pace in 2017 as organizations seek to gain relatively more efficiencies as they scale their compute resources for better customer services, says Forrester Research in a new report.
The analysts of Forrester Research say that the foremost trend comes with the enterprises. Enterprises, especially the big budgets, data centers, and complex applications are now looking at the cloud space as a viable place to run their core business applications. Forrester found that 38% of the 1,000 plus North American and European enterprise infrastructure technology decision makers are building private clouds comprising of 32 percent procuring public cloud services and the remaining are planning to implement some form of cloud technology in the next 12 months.
Cloud predictions for 2017:
Regional players will see an increase in adoption – The global public cloud market is growing at a 22 percent compound rate. With the increasing demands of cloud-based applications, it will become a herculean task for the major companies such as Amazon, Microsoft, IBM, and Google to service every unique request. This indicates that the small regional players will gain more importance in the upcoming years.
Cloud costs will decrease – In 2017, with their best practices maturing, the IT executives will get better at containing cloud costs. The cost management tools from AWS, Cloudability, Cloudyn, etc. are available that are capable of cutting off the cloud computing architecture costs by sharp 10% by monitoring their consumption.
Private clouds will undergo hyper convergence – Hyperconverged infrastructure solutions will offer pre-integrated compute and storage resources helping organizations get their cloud implementations running faster. Forrester recommends that organizations consider HCI as the foundation for their private cloud development, particularly for new workloads that demand rapid, automated scale-out.
There will be containers for managing software code – Software developed for cloud apps can now be managed with the help of containers like Linux containers, which will be available in every major public and private cloud platform by early 2017. The developers will be able to consume them directly and can build their own stacks to power micro services development.
Public cloud will house enterprise apps – Recent survey has found several companies hosting enterprise applications in AWS, indicating that CIOs have become more comfortable hosting critical software in the public cloud. According to Forrester, this trend will continue as CIOs rely more heavily on public cloud providers.
