Three technological trends already occupy people’s minds when it comes to deploying data in the cloud: multi-cloud, serverless and containers.
If they continue to be used by businesses next year, their full integration may take time. What is less obvious is the speed at which companies will continue to adopt these technologies.
Based on the “active data” of more than 1,600 customers using the Sumo Logic platform, one report points to three trends in the cloud. First, multi-cloud adoption and deployments doubled, with Amazon Web Services leading, but followed by Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform. Second, the adoption of serverless architectures continues to grow: one in three companies uses AWS Lambda technologies. And three, one in three companies uses native orchestration solutions or managed by Kubernetes. Finally, 28% of companies use Docker containers in AWS.
This data should not surprise you since the market explosion. But it is interesting to confirm that companies are rapidly migrating to the cloud. Societies are neglecting basic storage and IT infrastructure services for the services used by the most modern companies, for example, multi-cloud management, serverless computing, and containers. But what does this reveal about next year’s deployments?
Growing Adoption, but still inconsistent
First, there are many costs associated with multi-cloud technologies, in addition to managing the additional complexity that will be required. However, enterprises will quickly take the lead, primarily through the use of advanced cloud and multi-cloud platforms. Second, the absence of servers will become systematic for the development of most future cloud services, including databases. Easier to use, it allows you to eliminate third parties from decisions to provide additional computing or scaling resources. Besides, these developments of cloud services with this technology will enable serverless subsystems to be improved and listened to more quickly. It puts additional pressure on traditional PaaS systems.
As the container market grows, so does Kubernetes. It has become a standard for those who want to run container clusters, at any scale because the solution has become a heavyweight in the industry and so much. What is less obvious, however, is the speed at which companies will continue to adopt these technologies, which can be inconsistent. There is likely to be a slowdown in integrations shortly if the technologies and bandwidth needed for deployment are saturated.
Nobody can precisely predict the future of the cloud technology. But with the competition and constant innovation, we can hope that it will be for the better.
