Is Cloud Computing On Cloud 9 Or Just A Fad?

By | February 12, 2016

No one gainsays the fact that cloud computing has certainly revolutionized the way we work. However, we now need more fortified solutions that can provide us highly secure space for enterprises to rely on it for all their business chores. We need competitiveness as well as competence that ensures enterprises to start the development with ease.

Cloud platforms are certainly working as a catalyst for expediting the process of app development and are also adding value to these services by increasing their scalability and security to render complex needs of modern enterprises’.

Cloud Computing in 2016

Here we will discuss what all clouds has achieved that makes is a reckoning force, not just a fading technology.Cloud Computing in 2016 on Cloud 9

Protein Prediction

One of the latest advancement in cloud computing is the latest PredictProtein (PP) project. This is an automated service that searches up-to-date public sequence databases, predicts aspects of protein and creates alignments.
A protein sequence is sent, and the users then receive a single file in which there are results from database comparisons and methods that can help in prediction.
This system is designed for experimentalists that are not much experienced in bioinformatics. This aimed at making use of high-quality methods and assemble the reliable results only and omitting the one which is not authentic.

Cloud Solution

The PredictProtein cloud solution developed on an open source operating system named as Debian and provided all the functionalities is set free as a Debian software packages. Bio-Linux is an OS designed for bioinformatics, and it also supports computational biology. Of there was a latest release seven that renders about 500 plus bioinformatics programs that are based on Ubuntu Linux.
Cloud BioLinux is a holistic cloud solution that is a derivative of Ubuntu and Bio-Linux. The best thing about the packages that derive from Debian is that they can easily share packages withing each other.

Hybrid Clouds Become The Next-Gen Infrastructure Foundation

It’s not just the clouds that are going on a roll, but people have come up to accept the hybrid clouds by the big enterprise in these forthcoming years.
In this forthcoming year hybrid is expected to become quite a usual thing for enterprise web infrastructure. This is as per the latest statement from Gartner’s Ed Anderson that recently, “I start to think of a multi-cloud environment as a foundation for the next wave of applications.”

It’s not just cloud that we need

A few years back people were not that far sighted to judge the importance of AWS, but later we realized the importance of it, and it was accepted widely.
This might be because the leading hosting providers at that time were not ready to lose their market. Thus, they made it clear that the “real” users made use of “enterprise cloud” and this cloud might not come from any of the organizations but must come from an organization that understands the needs of the enterprises.

The launch of this cloud servers came up with taglines such “XXX delivers the enterprise cloud” and “YYY enterprise cloud: delivering the best cloud infrastructure.”
These taglines were speaking it loud and clear that AWS does not provide a robust and secure cloud that can meet the growing needs of enterprise applications, but they meant that if they are taking such a big responsibility they must understand the needs of the enterprises that require and must have the infrastructure that can deliver that level of perfection.

Enterprise 3D-printing

Till 2019, it has been expected that Enterprise 3D-printing shipments experience a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 64.1%. David Cearley included in his keynote that jet engines will make use of 3D printing nowadays. It was not just that he mentioned about it, but he included an example to that suffices the fact that 3D printing is growing in its popularity and is getting adopted by several manufacturing organizations such as automotive, aerospace, medical devices, energy, and not just these but industries that were related to the military.

IoT is growing

Internet of things (IoT), has emerged as one of the most fascinated technological trends of 2015. But this forthcoming year will see it gaining momentum and other problems such as compatibility issues with several devices running on a single platform. As per Gartner reports, IoT devices will see a considerable 30% growth in the forth coming year. As per this research firm it has estimated that IoT embark on all new era altogether and, “Enterprise will account for the largest spending.”

Cloud turns to Hyper-Converged Platforms for solving speed issues

As per the growth you might hear from the service provider will come up with the next-generation cloud architecture will be built on a hyper-converged platform will be quite high in 2016. Looking at the soaring demands for cloud services, service providers are now switching to hyper-converged cloud platforms watching the scalability and low maintenance costs of the systems. As per IDC research prediction, the expenditure on hyper-convergence in 2016 will be $1.6 billion which is double the spendings that were $806.8 million in 2015.

Future is eagerly awaited!

Cloud has certainly improved the way we work, and this cannot be avoided. Though in this turbulently changing technology it is hard to predict what will come and overtake the current development trends all of a sudden. Looking at the current situation, we can say that the cloud has certainly a gleaming future. Well, time can only tell what the future awaits.
