COVID-19 changed many things in our personal and business worlds. Some of them will remain forever changed. Venture Beat brought this information to our attention in their article, “Big Tech backlash gives rise to the independent cloud.”

Among those sudden changes a growing dependence on cloud computing, accelerated by an unprecedented separation of businesses from specific physical premises.

The COVID-19 pandemic upended how organizations work and operate. The increased volume of employees working from home using conferencing and collaboration services is stressing back-end support services and increasing traffic on networks that connect users to these services. Only providers with robust and abundant architecture that deliver an uninterrupted customer experience will be able to manage the increased load.

The reliance on the largest public cloud vendors has grown, as well as concerns about whether these are really the right bets for many organizations to make.

The cloud computing model is inherently designed to handle fluctuating demand and, if implemented correctly, should be able to support increased requests such as those created by the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.
