Cloud computing trends to witness in the future
For a long time, the concept of cloud computing has been mentioned as an achievement of technology, which is dominating the field of data management. Cloud computing facilitates the development of deploying big data, predicting and analyzing application of cognitive computing, and edge computing. Gartner predicts that the global public cloud service market will exceed $ 200 billion in 2019.
Recently, in the world, cloud computing related to data is no longer a top concern as before but still has certain effects on the above activities. In the context of cloud data storage, security measures, data structure, hybridization, operating system virtualization... have made significant progress, certainly there will be a new development in this year.
Cloud not only strengthens SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture), but also improves the data-driven practices for the entire SOE (Service-Oriented Economy). Cloud will change the market, making service providers not only sell services and products created by the business but become a service provider of everything, from applications to workloads, data centers... According to Jeff McCullough, Vice President of Americas Partner Sales at NetApp, it creates a very different world compared to five years ago.
The world that Cloud created provides many services, increasing choices with flexible prices for customers, as well as the agility in all areas for organizations and businesses to take advantage of and develop. That is also the reason why cloud is becoming more and more popular.
Public cloud has created services based on this model. According to Anthony Lye, Senior Vice President and General Manager at NetApp, public nloud allows organizations to focus on important parts like applications and data, which can be chosen to run independently or combine together.
By providing services with the most important element of data space, cloud computing is expected to create a developed service-oriented economy by 2019.
Cloud databases, warehouses and data lakes
Cloud computing companies are considered to be the key to the current service-oriented economy. The reason is that a part of cloud computing can overcome the most worrying problem related to data system and management reporting system, which is the process of integrating technology that enterprises use to check and control the huge amount of data coming from different sources and effectively exploit that data source.
Extensive benefits of cloud computing are in line with the scalability and rapid development of data of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. However, the ability to link data sources, analyze and process available data for new businesses is the main benefit of the cloud. As soon as there is data in the cloud, you can completely access other services.
Accessibility is a very important factor in cloud-based deployment and cloud services. This becomes more difficult when the volume of data and applications is increased rapidly according to the needs of business customers.
Typically, applications and data are deployed in hybrid form. The most popular method of hybrid deployment is between physical infrastructure (server management, colocation) and on the cloud to expand and develop the infrastructure of the organization on the cloud, while maintaining the connection of cloud resources with internal system. This form is becoming more and more effective for data unification and accessibility.
This utility becomes more and more important for international deployment, which is inherently difficult to apply at the national scale. The new geographic area and cloud computing is a good solution to meet that requirement.
Security and virtualization
Security requirements and information security risks are persistent concerns for any cloud application. However, concerns about data security of the cloud can be solved just by selecting the right cloud vendor with information security standards recognized by the organizations. The security benefits of the cloud solution will become a strong point to make customers happy afterwards. The traditional advantage of cloud security is the multi-layer protection, including firewall, network, server and protection applications. The data is wrapped in the middle.
Ways to set up and ensure protection layers are constantly updated, preventing major data from being attacked and virtualized. In the cloud environment, building a virtual server will address the need for something new, such as a new operating system, and everything is handled very quickly. However, in the context of easy global cloud access, organizations and businesses must be cautious about security protocols. Security protocols and administrative requirements need to be set up differently, depending on the location of the data.
Software is established as a good mechanism to deploy hybrid cloud and multi-cloud. This method allows organizations and businesses to flexibly deploy security wherever they want to isolate their services from detailed access, user access... This approach reduces hackers' data attack rate, encrypts data for the basic purpose of reducing the risk of data lead, thus reducing the number of information security violations significantly.
Cloud container system is often used in the form of hybrid cloud and multi-cloud. Cloud container systems are an alternative to virtual machines and allow applications to be deployed quickly, reliably, consistently and understandably, which leads to quick release of new features and software. Furthermore, cloud vendors can provide hosted container management services as well as distinguish their platforms from each other through cloud container. This container can also optimize ROI investment efficiency for multi-cloud use cases for different purposes other than high availability.
Cloud container is also important for the service-oriented economy of the cloud because it allows resources to operate multiple settings, which enhances the data structure that creates influences other than the location of data. Container system is super easy to identify portability. The things you need to move between those clouds, you can standardize them in containers, then get these containers and place them in the environment you want. This job is much easier than when the applications only run on the operating system.
