Cloud computing has been around for so many years, and it has been growing. I believe that cloud computing will continue to change the way typical data center is operating and how business is leveraging technology.
According to zdnet.com “Cloud computing will virtually replace traditional data centers within three years.”
Most businesses including startups do not need expensive data centers and necessary infrastructure to start or operate their businesses, thanks to cloud computing. Cloud computing makes it easy to scale up and down. What I like most about cloud computing is the ability to run your business efficiently with a limited budget.
Also, most applications are in the cloud which gives consumers the ability to access their data anywhere
From zdnet.com “Both consumer and business applications are contributing to the growing dominance of cloud services. For consumers, streaming video, social networking, and search are among the most popular cloud applications; for business users, enterprise resource planning (ERP), collaboration, and analytics are the top growth areas, according to research from Cisco.”
