Cloud computing has forever changed the game of digitally-enabled businesses. According to the latest forecast from Gartner, Inc, worldwide end-user spending on public cloud services has grown 23.1% in 2021 to total $332.3 billion, up from $270 billion in 2020.
Sid Nag, research vice president at Gartner said, “Emerging technologies such as containerization, virtualization and edge computing are becoming more mainstream and driving additional cloud spending. Simply put, the pandemic served as a multiplier for CIOs’ interest in the cloud.”
Gartner defines cloud management platforms as integrated products that provide for the management of public, private, and hybrid cloud environments. The minimum requirements to be included in this category are products that incorporate self-service interfaces, provision system images, enable metering and billing, and provide for some degree of workload optimization through established policies.
Cloud technology has become a boon for digital businesses. It is now a way of operating business— smartly and cost-effectively. It provides various benefits in terms of infrastructure cost, operational efficiency, data security, predictable pricing, future-proof technology, resource optimization, critical threat or disaster recovery, higher availability and continuity, and better compliance support. Moreover, you can up-scale and down-scale as per your current business requirements.
The cloud offers diverse benefits to organizations but to make the most of them demands specialized skill-sets and an in-depth understanding of the cloud technology and tools. A cloud managed services provider can help you leverage the cloud infrastructure at the optimal level on an ongoing basis.
