Clouds Are Growing as Remote Access Dominates Business Operations

Over the past few months, it has become clear that technology can do many things than we had initially imagined. From meetings to working from home and ordering items, groceries of food, we can now do almost everything while seated at our comfortable couches at home. All these became clear after the coronavirus pandemic. Since the beginning of this unprecedented transition, cloud businesses have benefited the most. This came as companies increasingly moved their data and information to a digital platform so that they can continue dispensing services even as their physical premises remain closed.


The Promise of the U.S. National Research Cloud 

One of the benefits of the public cloud computing model is the ability of multiple entities to take advantage of the immense resources made available by providers. This characteristic evens the research playing field by allowing academics and small startups to leverage the technical expertise and computing power of the cloud-tech giants. It would be financially impossible for these organizations to replicate the infrastructure that major cloud vendors have at their disposal. 


Cloud Migrations are Affecting Layoffs

As COVID-19 continues changing norms across industries, the impact is emerging in the IT industry. Many companies are moving their IT services are moving to the cloud as a way of enhancing service provision. Although companies were already shifting their operations from onsite to the cloud pre-Covid-19, the shift has been accelerated by the coronavirus pandemic as well as lockdown and social distancing measures put in place to limit infections. This change is suddenly being felt as many players are now laying off their staff. For instance, IBM, under its new chief executive officer, is cutting off several jobs as a result of these changes. Although the number of staff that will be laid off is still not known, the Wall Street Journal reports that it is likely to be in thousands out of its original number of 352,600 as of the end of 2019.


The Complimentary Nature of AI and Cloud Computing

Artificial intelligence (AI) has had a tremendous impact on many areas of computing. As the technology matures, its influence continues to expand in the cloud computing world. AI is used by providers both to manage their resources and to offer advanced services to their customers. It is being woven into the fabric of computing services at a consistently increasing pace.


The Best Skillset for a Cloud Computing Career

The cloud computing sector is expected to continue to exhibit consistent growth for at least the next several years. According to forecasts by Gartner, by 2022 the revenue generated from worldwide public cloud services will exceed $350 billion. Software as a Service (SaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) are the cloud models that make up the majority of market share, but all cloud services are poised to experience increased revenue.


Cloud Services are Stepping in to Help Handle Unemployment

When the world’s economy came to a halt as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, countries have experienced a dramatic increase in the levels of unemployment. These rates have been driven by the social distancing guidelines, damage to the supply chain, and the lockdown. These guidelines have left many countries and citizens struggling to manage as the rates of unemployment keep spiraling.


Keeping Safe with Cloud Security as a Service

The cloud computing paradigm has introduced the concept of obtaining various components of an IT environment as a service. Using offerings such as software as a service (SaaS), organizations can add substantial functionality and flexibility to their IT resources without capital expenditures on hardware or hiring support personnel. 


Your Best Options When Migrating Databases to the Cloud

The benefits of migrating IT systems to the cloud are well-documented. Enhanced flexibility and cost savings are two of the advantages enjoyed by organizations when moving part of their computing environment to the cloud. Gartner estimates that the worldwide public cloud market will top $266 billion in 2020 and will continue to exhibit substantial growth in the next several years. 


Cloud Deployments Can Be Safe

As businesses and individuals move their operations to the cloud, it is becoming clearer each day that security and safety are two critical factors in any cloud deployment. With the right deployment strategy in place, spiraling costs can be avoided while moving applications and data from on-site storage or from one cloud to another. The biggest challenge has always been moving to the cloud without a proper strategy but rather as a knee-jerk reaction to a promised low cost by different vendors. One of such failure to plan can be seen from back in 2011 when the Cloud First policy was announced by the Obama administration. The announcement saw many companies and individuals moving their applications and data without taking into account various aspects of the cloud in comparison with on-site storage or comparing one cloud with another.


How the Cloud is Helping to Fight COVID-19 

The global pandemic has affected virtually everyone on the planet and shows no signs of fading away anytime soon. As the world struggles to cope with the deadly virus and its impact on society, cloud providers are stepping up with innovative ways to use their technological resources to assist in a variety of ways. Here’s a sampling of how the cloud is being used to address the many problems being caused by the coronavirus.
