The Evolution Of Cloud Connectivity


It seems like an obvious statement to make, but it is worth constantly reminding ourselves of the fact that the cloud is growing so that we don’t become complacent of its role in modern business. In fact, an article on Cloud Tweaks states that over 60% of businesses in 2018 will have 50% of their infrastructure based in the cloud – highlighting just how essential it is due to become.

Before that happens, however, it has been predicted that in 2017 – so just two years’ away – over one-third (35%) of new business applications will utilise the cloud in some way to help foster business innovation. With business applications also growing at a rapid pace, they are helping to fuel the evolution and growth of the cloud, too. It seems that the cloud is becoming stronger from every angle, and those businesses that fail to appreciate its rapid growth risk being left behind in an increasingly competitive digital landscape.

The connection between data centres and cloud platforms is becoming more important, too, with the cloud becoming the key connection between a number of computing platforms – the heart of the digital ecosystem, so to speak. This means businesses need to really focus on how fast their data centres connect to the cloud if they are to truly utilise its scope in the current working environment.

But, there are continuous references to the safety of the cloud and how secure data stored there really is. Obviously, we take cloud security very seriously when it comes to the safety of our clients’ data, but with recent news stories breaking about digital hacks we can understand the concerns that are regularly raised by business professionals.

But this isn’t stopping the cloud from expanding its horizons and continuing its dominance of the working world. How else do you think the cloud will affect modern businesses? Will business applications and infrastructure slowly become 100% reliant on the cloud?
