As we enter the fifth month of 2015, it’s worth taking a look at some of the cloud computing trends that are taking shape this year. It’s an exciting time for business owners who are looking to the cloud for cost savings and other efficiencies. We’ve chosen to showcase a few trends that seem to be gaining steam in 2015.
Increased Migration to the Cloud
Companies are migrating to the cloud in huge numbers. This includes companies across all sorts of industries that are looking for a more shared and stable infrastructure. As more people learn about the benefits of the cloud, companies that are not overly technical are looking for ways to increase efficiencies and cut costs by way of the cloud.
Move to Cheaper Cloud Providers
For the past number of years, top-tier cloud providers like Amazon, Microsoft, Google, and Rackspace have dominated the cloud market. As more small businesses look for cloud providers, second-tier companies like DigitalOcean are seeing huge success. DigitalOcean is a more affordable cloud provider and, due to this cost savings, has catapulted to the world’s third largest hosting provider according to an article from Netcraft. Look for other small providers to see success by offering more affordable options compared to the top-tier providers.
Increase of Cloud Brokerage Services
Some businesses still do not have the technological know-how to begin to migrate to a cloud service. Because of this, a large number of cloud brokerage services are emerging that work as an intermediary between a business and the cloud provider to help with the initial cloud migration as well as ongoing maintenance.
