Over the last few years, cloud computing has only gained momentum, and it has become evident that it is not stopping. We saw some huge changes come from cloud computing during the pandemic, and more changes are coming. By 2028 the market size is expected to reach $1.1 trillion, with a growth of 15% CAGR during this period. Here are a few trends that are expected to flourish over the next year.
Hybrid and Multi-Cloud Infrastructures
Using hybrid cloud services is not a compromise between approaches but a balance of their strengths. It gives you the ability to have quick access to your data but also has private servers for more secure or sensitive data. Most businesses have moved past using a single provider for all services and have delved more into using multi-cloud infrastructures where you can use multiple services from different suppliers. Even though both these technologies are currently used, there will be an increase seen during the end of 2022 and leading into 2023.
This type of technology is new and emerging in the gaming world. Cloud gaming allows you to stream virtually an unlimited option of games for a monthly fee. These games can be played anywhere on any device you own without having to buy expensive gaming consoles. Cloud gaming helps eliminate the need for storage space, specialized hardware, and piracy issues. All this brings a shift to lower overall costs and sustainability. Many major players use cloud gaming, such as Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Apple, Samsung, Sony, and Nvidia.
Blockchain is a revolutionary technology that can provide tamper-evident, shared digital ledgers that will record data in either private or public networks. These records are accurate and do not rely on central authorities. Kubernetes are open-source container platforms used to orchestrate organizations being able to scale, deploy, and manage containerized infrastructure automatically. Using both blockchain and Kubernetes interoperable allow simplified deployments and upgradeability. Deploying blockchain networks and their components via Kubernetes clusters will most likely be the standard of adoption within the next few years. This is due to this method solving two of the major issues blockchain faces: inherent complexity and integration into the existing infrastructure.
