The global sheltering-in-place and quarantine has given a huge steroid shot to digital technology and content. This couldn’t have happened without the cloud, and with cloud computing’s potential, will only continue to grow. Data Quest brought this information to us in their article, “Coronavirus provides impetus to the growth of cloud computing.”

The pace of cloud adoption has certainly intensified due to the coronavirus pandemic because organizations had to make hasty arrangements to enable their employees to work from home or students to learn from home, which ironically was often previously dismissed as impossible.

Cloud computing has helped organizations manage this change and prevent the economy from coming to a complete standstill.

It is a good thing that most cloud service providers have the capability to scale. Cloud computing offers many benefits. It helps organizations address one of their biggest concerns — cyber security — and organizations can use distributed cloud IT systems to efficiently handle disaster recovery situations.
