After gathering, analyzing and prioritizing we have listed The Top 5 Trends in cloud computing that you should be aware of in 2018:
# 1- Internet of things on cloud
Most IoT devices are heavily dependent on cloud solutions, mainly with connected devices working together. IoT based devices such as electronic appliances, cars, digital security systems, and trackers have a cloud-based back end as a means to communicate and store information. Cloud supports these devices, and as we see a rise in IoT devices being manufactured and sold, the cloud usage will continue to increase as a result.
# 2- Bigger cloud storage capacity:
Large scale businesses with tons and tons of data will require more space to store that data. Cloud service providers in 2018 will bring in more data centres online with larger-capacity storage. According to the Cisco survey, the total amount of data held in data centers will stand at 370 EB. Conversely, global storage capacity would reach 600 EB. We should expect these numbers to increase to about 1.1 ZB worth of storage capacity. Businesses with big data will choose increased space options whereas small businesses can have bespoke storage options at lower prices as compared to 2017.
# 3- Penetration of high internet speeds
The amount of data is exponentially growing and therefore consumers are expecting faster and better internet connectivity from their network service providers to load website pages and apps quickly.
