The Status Of Cloud Technology In 2017 – Part 2


Private Cloud

Involves a secure environment in which only the customer can navigate.

Organizations choose this method because it provides a higher level of control and security. It is in the interest of companies to work with this option, specifically ifHybrid cloud

Uses both private and public cloud systems.

The hybrid model helps to identify, create and develop new competitive advantages, able to increase business development and outperform competitors. The hybrid cloud is an integrated cloud model in that it uses both private and public cloud types, combining the benefits of both: scalability and cost savings in the public cloud and cloud privatization.

The hybrid cloud model is a much-needed solution, both by large companies that have already developed private cloud solutions and by small and medium-sized businesses that do not or do not want to invest resources in traditional IT architectures.

Currently, the most common cloud services are e-mail and e-mail. When the cloud is developed long enough and when companies trust this technology, large companies will be the main targets of service providers of this type.

Accessing cloud-based applications through virtual servers is a simple idea, but with a major impact on the business.

What characterizes the cloud market in 2017

More and more SMEs are turning to cloud technology

Small and medium-sized businesses will experience accelerated adoption of cloud solutions, continuing the attitude seen in recent years. At the same time, SMEs will also join the cloud for financial reasons, because setting up solutions on the spot is much more expensive. According to a global study, the cloud budget for SMEs will increase annually by 20% until 2020.

Businesses use multiple cloud providers

The Multicloud, or sign partnerships with different cloud providers, seems to be one of the trends in cloud computing in 2017. It is interesting to note that this concept is different from the “hybrid cloud” which refers to the use of both types of cloud. cloud, private and public. At the same time, statistics confirm this trend, the adoption rate of more cloud provider this year reached 85%, compared to 82% in 2016. We can say that organizations tend to turn to different partners offering these services for reasons such as reducing reliance on a single provider, increasing flexibility, or increasing data migration options for computer-related disasters.

Security remains a priority

Security, one of the most important aspects of cloud service providers, is also part of this year’s trends. Thus, in 2017, more and more efforts will be made to make cloud infrastructures more resistant to attack. Cloud security will be improved through various methods such as the use of automation and artificial intelligence, micro segmentation (implementation of security models in data centers, using a virtualized approach, based on software, not hardware) or the use of self-healing systems.

The internet of things is very dependent on cloud technology

The Cloud is certainly indispensable to the equipment of the Internet of Things, especially in the storage and analysis of data in order to obtain relevant information. As the data volume of the Internet of Things grows exponentially, the availability of appropriate storage solutions becomes imperative and the cloud provides the right solution. This is why cloud services have machine learning and artificial intelligence applications to use to collect and analyze in real time the data provided by the machines of the Internet of Things.


In the past, companies used cloud computing to differentiate themselves from their competitors and to increase their competitive advantage. But in the present, data storage in the cloud is no longer optional, but a need to align with current standards. So, surely, in 2017 we can expect an increase in the adoption rate of cloud services.
