Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services, whether that be servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics, intelligence, etc., over the Internet or the cloud. This option is chosen for faster innovation, flexible resources, and economies of scale. ZD Net brought this interesting topic to us in their article, “Cloud computing: Five key business trends to look out for.”

2018 was a good year for cloud computing. Because you typically pay only for cloud services you use, this option can help lower your operating costs, run your infrastructure more efficiently, and scale as your business needs change.

However, there’s still progress to be made before the operating systems on the cloud can be considered routine. Will 2019 bring the answer?

In 2019, a major transformation of legacy apps using powerful container-based, cloud-native digital application platforms will commence. Cloud spending is predicted to spike, as many infrastructure and operations professionals and their enterprises adopt cloud tools and services wherever and however they can.

It looks like 2019 will be the year of the cloud.
