In the last few years the generally accepted notion of computing has been challenged by a revolution in the industry. The traditional computing model is gaining momentum in its rush to the threshold of liberation we know as cloud computing. Even just a few years ago almost any task, no matter how small, required software to be installed and storage to be allocated for program and saved files. Not only did software have to be purchased, a license was required for every system on which the software would be installed.
To run the software also required the right hardware, and every application had minimum requirements that forced users to upgrade systems to run the application. Every application required storage space for installation and data storage. When individual user computers evolved into networked systems based on a server-client model, most computers connected to one server for storage, but still required software to be installed on the clients.
Now what we understand as computing is poised to make the next evolutionary leap. This transformation is already underway and the next generation of computing will greatly reduce the need to install software, or to maintain software licenses. This is the evolution of client-server computing, to cloud computing. Data is no longer stored in isolated servers, available only to users logged into a client on the same network. Instead, data is stored in a server connected to the Internet, providing users access from anywhere in the world at any time. Cloud computing allows users to access applications on the cloud without having to change their devices or platforms. The cloud allows users to access data from anywhere in the world on any device at any time.
Global Cloud computing trends indicate that Enterprise Cloud Computing is the next big thing in the market with cloud computing shaping up in a big way. Primary and secondary categories of enterprise businesses in the cloud field can expect phenomenal growth over the next few years as many are looking to move their services into the cloud. Cloud computing requires a vast array of services operating together to keep the cloud running. A host of enterprises provide necessary services that form the backbone of the cloud.
Data security, network infrastructure, data centers and app developers are all set to experience a major boom in business, with the cloud shaping up to be the next big thing in the IT industry. Cloud computing updates indicate more and more businesses looking to transform their traditional business offerings into online versions on the cloud. This leads to a new sector of services called Software as a Service (SaaS), where cloud computing solutions are offered to businesses in order for them to reach out to consumers on the cloud.
The cloud race has already begun with major participants from all around the world. Like the mainframe model or client server model that came before, it won’t be long before people won’t be able to imagine a world where the cloud didn’t exist. Everyone is headed for the clouds…
