We live in a world where cloud technology is rapidly becoming the norm.
FREMONT, CA: Today, organizations have either migrated their operations on the cloud or are doing it. Based on their unique requirements, organizations are leveraging the offerings and varying form factors of cloud including, SaaS, PaaS and IaaS, private, public, and hybrid clouds.
Due to the varying needs of their business, users, and customers, organizations face difficulties in aligning to a singular cloud provider through one platform. Much like the old days when their workloads were distributed among multiple operating systems, organizations today use a hybrid cloud environment to support their diverse applications. Industry figures by few solution providers validate this claim, which states that the average business runs 38 percent of Workloads in public clouds and 41 percent in private clouds with a Hybrid cloud running at a 55 percent adoption rate. On the issues of multiple providers, a report says that 81 percent of public cloud users pick between two or more solution providers and with companies taking this more profound, citing that Amazon, Microsoft, and Google combined accounted for 57 percent of the worldwide cloud computing market in 2018.
With the adoption of hybrid cloud on the rise, many pertinent challenges such as maintaining resiliency, security, data portability, and others remain a significant roadblock. Besides, the cost of cloud services and the want for consistency of data services and the ability to run data back out of cloud if wanted is also a key driver.
Many cloud solution providers are coming to the fore with innovative offerings to service, support, and supplement the needs of the high growth cloud consumption. They are helping to bring on-premise flexibility, security, and portability to cloud storage with a focus on improving performance and storage at the same time. Also, these solution providers support both Docker and Kubernetes to suit the increasingly open DevOps world of the public cloud. On top of that, these providers deliver these top-notch services in a flat and transparent billing model across all clouds with no egress charges.
