Private Cloud Management on the Rise in 2013
November 19, 2012
If you’ve been keeping an eye on cloud trends, you might have noticed some interesting developments. According to projections by Ovum (News - Alert), there are some new cloud computing ecosystems on the rise, and in spite of the cloud still being relatively new, it’s seems to be here to stay.
By Ovum’s estimations, these 2013 cloud trends will include the development of cloud services and the nexus of cloud-mobility-data being tied together more, which will keep security and compliance as a major focus. Governance, management and integration of the cloud will also become a higher priority, while cloud services ecosystems will begin to take a competitive edge from vendors.
At the same time, private cloud services will continue to surpass public or hybrid cloud use, although some analysts do recommend a hybrid approach; however, public and hybrid clouds both will continue to evolve as well.
This allows companies such as Adaptive Computing (News - Alert), a private cloud management company who works to enhance HPS system efficiency among other things, to remain comfortably situated in the market while continuing to advance its offerings. Recently, the company released new workload management software – Moab HPC Suite 7.2 – which offers more power and scheduling efficiency for Intel (News - Alert) Xeon Phi coprocessors, as well as boasts enhanced multi-group management, a streamlined dashboard portal and a periodic budget reset capability.
Part of the cause for these trends will be the deployment of software, infrastructure and platforms as a service, with SaaS (News - Alert) in the lead, followed by the latter two. Of course, as adoption and deployment grows, the cloud will continue to enter new markets, and in doing so, continue to become more efficient.
As a result of this change and development, we can look forward to seeing new cloud ecosystems form. Said ecosystems might involve technology development, joint sales components or anything similar; it all depends on where the market goes. Vendors will also be able to better offer consulting and assessment services to customers, letting them stand out and help customers differentiate between competitors.
There is still much waiting ahead for the cloud. We are witnessing its growth and metamorphosis into what it will become, but that doesn’t stop us from taking advantage of all the benefits it has to offer along the way.
