The Savings Offered By Cloud Computing

"There’s much praise, along with some flak, in the IT industry about the benefits of Cloud Computing. And unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you’ve probably heard of some, if not all of them. One of them is reduced costs and higher ROI in terms of both CAPEX (Capital expenditure)and OPEX (Operating expense). Although cloud bandwidth prices and managed hosting fees might seem higher as compared to traditional hosting options, the benefits in the longer run are evident as client testimonials and numbers pile up."

How 5G will change cloud computing

Article | February 12, 2020

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.

Cloud Computing The disruptive shift to cloud for the long-term investor

Article | March 5, 2020

The public cloud services market is expected to total more than $214 billion when the figures for 2019 are finalised.The Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) segment of cloud is expected to have grown nearly 30% during 2019. If you haven’t heard of “IaaS”, that’s ok, just think of “Amazon Web Services” or “Microsoft Azure” as some of the biggest players in IaaS. In 2019, the U.S. Department of Defence even entered into a $10 billion contract with Microsoft Azure to move to the cloud, offering yet another proof point on the perceived convenience and security of using cloud-based infrastructure. In August of 2011, Marc Andreessen, a prominent Silicon Valley venture capitalist, wrote the phrase “software is eating the world” within a Wall Street Journal article[3]. Even then, now more than eight years ago, the case was clear that companies in Silicon Valley were relying less and less on delivering a physical “product” and more and more on delivering some type of software over the internet.
