There are several advantages of cloud computing including reduced IT costs, scalability, business continuity, and the flexibility of work. Currently, 90% of companies are using some type of cloud service, and that number is only expected to grow. Some experts predict that the global cloud computing market size will grow from $371 billion to $832.1 billion by 2025.

With the increase in spending, we will also see a rise in future trends.

1. Hybrid

Cloud computing provides businesses the flexibility and productivity they need to grow and meet the demand of customers, whether utilizing the public or private cloud. Many experts agree that the future of cloud computing is hybrid, allowing users to get the best of both worlds with a mixture of a private cloud (on-premise) and a public (off-premise) cloud. The benefits to a hybrid cloud approach include better support for a remote workforce, reduced costs, and improved scalability and control.

2. Serverless Architecture

Serverless computing is a cloud computing execution model where the cloud provider runs the server and manages the allocation of machine resources. Serverless architecture enables businesses to build and run applications and services without thinking about or having to manage servers, providing greater agility and a lower total cost of ownership.

3. Kubernetes

Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Many experts believe it is going to be the future of cloud computing and become the new interactive interface between users and cloud computing.

4. Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and cloud computing are already improving the lives of millions. Assets like Siri, Google Home, and Amazon Alexa are utilized daily by consumers, and businesses are using AI to make their organizations more efficient, strategic, and data driven. AI has tremendous capabilities to benefit companies, and cloud computing will play a significant role in allowing companies to harness the power of AI.
