The cloud computing network is growing at a rapid rate and is offering numerous advantages over the traditional methods of computing. Today opting for a digital transformation and investing in cloud computing can save businesses a lot of money. Cloud computing drastically reduces the need for on-premise hardware and software. Businesses can benefit a lot from cloud services as they can be scaled as per requirement.
The importance of cloud computing for business owners is growing and it is a must that businesses stay up-to-date about all the emerging trends in cloud computing. Here are the top 3 trends of cloud computing in 2022.
AI and ML in cloud computing
Today, both Machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) are two of the most talked-about technologies in every field. AI and ML offer amazing benefits for all businesses. Both these technologies can process large amounts of data quickly and efficiently. AI and ML services provide insights into customer behaviour, trends, and preferences. This helps businesses in making better business decisions. Cloud computing plays a vital role in delivering AI and ML services and creating an impact on the society.
AI and ML applications or platforms require appropriate infrastructure, huge bandwidth and processing power. Cloud computing has the potential to provide all of this for better AI/ML implementation. Together Cloud & AI/ML will create a space that is more data-driven and strategic. When combined, AI/ML and Cloud computing can create innovative algorithms, and accuracy of machines to understand and interpret human languages. In 2022, the adoption of AI/ML technologies is estimated to grow significantly.
Improved Security and Compliance
Security of cloud deployments and compliance data becomes a topmost priority when shifting to cloud. As the popularity and usage of cloud computing services is growing it is obvious for businesses to be concerned about the security. This is why cloud providers are now providing improved security features and compliance certificates. This has further generated tremendous demand for Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) and Cloud-based disaster recovery (DR) practices.
SASE is a cloud security architecture. It allows businesses to control access and connectivity between cloud platforms and applications, on-premise IT infrastructure, and end-user devices. Whereas, Cloud-based disaster recovery (DR) uses cloud computing to back up data, load balancing, replicating cloud services across multiple cloud providers, etc.
In case of a natural or man-made disaster, DR (Cloud-based disaster recovery) helps in running the necessary business processes. In times of a disaster there can be an outage and organizations may lose access to their physical infrastructure this is where DR helps by continuing operational activities.
Cloud Gaming, Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality will expand tremendously
The world is going to witness a huge explosion in cloud gaming in the near future. Cloud gaming allows users to stream unlimited virtual option of games that too for a flat monthly fee. Gamers can now shift to cloud gaming without having to invest in expensive consoles. Major players in the cloud gaming space like the Google and Amazon will define the direction the cloud gaming realms.
Not just cloud gaming but the AR/VR industry is also about to witness a boom. Cloud Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) are making headsets more affordable and further boosting the growth of cloud gaming as a whole.
2022 is already witnessing an increased adoption of cloud computing services. Businesses are now investing in discovering new ways to use cloud-based systems for better insights and efficiency. The growth in the use of cloud-based systems is expected to rise in the future and bring in more scalability, and flexibility.
