According to IDC (News - Alert) Head of Research Matthew Oostveen, “2012 was the year we all got tired of the cloud.” So if the cloud is currently in a state of significant maturity, does that mean it will evolve from being the awkward, nagging adolescent this year to a sophisticated and independent adult in 2013? Recent research about cloud adoption trends are all pointing to a big fat “YES.”
It comes as no surprise to know that the majority of us are sick of hearing the same regurgitated statistics about cloud findings. Won’t what will happen next year be more important than reiterating what we already know?
So what can we expect in 2013?
Among one of the biggest changes we can expect to see will be the migration from on-premise to off-premise systems. “What is certain is we are watching a migration taking place where on-premise computing is moving to off-premise computing. It may start incrementally where we see an up take of co-location services, and obviously the co-locations services are being supported by the influx of new data centers in the market place,” Oostveen explains.
“Cloud computing [services] will mature next year and continue to be procured as a replacement to on-premise infrastructure and as an option for service delivery,” similarly added Telsyte Senior Analyst Rodney Gedda.
Another hot trend currently being seen in the industry is the expansion of data hosting. As the state of cloud computing shifts, so too it seems cloud hosting is rapidly transitioning from infancy to full-blown adulthood.
It seems, then, that esteemed cloud hosting companies such as Datapipe (News - Alert) are already far ahead of the curve. A managed hosting, security and IT services company including cloud computing, IaaS, PaaS and data centers, Datapipe hosts secure data centers across the world through its renowned Stratosphere Cloud Portal, providing the ultimate elasticity and global accessibility needed for optimum efficiency.
As we welcome 2013, it looks like we’ll also soon be seeing new types of applications delivered out of the cloud – and more importantly, more options for where data is hosted, according to Gedda.
The state of global cloud hosting is taking on new and important forms, as geographic limitations should no longer have to be a concern in today’s revolutionary age. As it continues to grow and take shape, companies like Datapipe will continue to offer reliable global cloud hosting solutions to meet your unique business needs.
