Around the world, enterprises are no longer debating the merits of cloud computing but are evaluating how they can leverage it as part of their digital transformation initiatives. From migrating existing on-premises workloads to building cloud-native services, businesses are looking to the cloud to deliver the digital capabilities they need to drive their businesses forward.This tectonic shift towards the cloud is evidenced by the sheer growth of the global public cloud services market, predicted by analyst firm Gartner to reach US$266.4 billion in 2020. As is often the case, a key challenge faced by enterprises revolves around selecting the right global cloud provider partner to work with.
A technology that has more misinformation around it than anything I have seen before. Much of this bad data is focused on cloud computing.The reality is that it will take a while to roll out 5G. We need to upgrade our phones, cell towers, network devices, and more, and that will not happen overnight. Moreover, the dollars it will require will not be easily extracted from most enterprises.Of course, there are many predictions about how cloud computing will change in a 5G world, most of which are dead wrong. Tech pundits are calling for 5G to light edge computing on fire and take share away from the public clouds. Both will grow rapidly.Any technology change, including 5G, will transform the use of other technologies along with cloud computing. However, what is likely to change is not as disruptive as most 5G fanboys think. Here are two ways 5G will change cloud computing.First, cloud access will spread everywhere. We have bandwidth deserts out there in mostly rural, less populated areas, where access to the Internet is non-existent or sub-10Gb/s down, with 1Gb/s up. You cannot do much with that as a business connected to an IaaS cloud provider; data transfer latency will just be too high. 5G holds the promise of eliminating bandwidth deserts and freeing business now in rural, underserved areas to leverage cloud computing, and thus expand the cloud computing market with 5G.
The cloud has had a major impact on broadcast workflows, with media companies moving their infrastructure to the cloud or private data centres in a bid to simplify workflows and reduce costs. Many broadcasters are now looking to a hybrid cloud approach, which leverages a mixed computing storage and services environment that combines on-premises infrastructure (and/or private cloud services) and a public cloud such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure – with orchestration between these various platforms.
In simple words, it is the computing over internet. In the past, individuals used to run programs and apps from software downloaded on a physical device. Cloud computing enables you to use the same types of apps but using internet. The cloud VPS is being used all over the world by many businesses.
