There have been a lot of innovations and advancements in the world of technology over the past few years. Be it Big Data, Artificial Intelligence or machine learning. But one technology that has made incomprehensible impact is Cloud Computing. The capability of storing, managing, processing, and analyzing data on a remote server (without investing heavily in the physical infrastructure) has been perceived as a major push behind the inventions and innovations in the IT world.
Cloud computing is nothing less than a blessing for tech start-ups. It has significantly reduced the cost of infrastructure (which was very much a requirement before cloud computing). Moreover, tech start-ups get the flexibility of using a particular service (provided by cloud services provider) for whatever time they.
Today Cloud offers dozens of services like Infrastructure as a service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and many other, it completely depends on the company to choose and decide what services they need and for how much time. This flexibility has provided the space; start-ups need to focus on the products or services. Apart from the big players among cloud service providers, there are start-ups as well, coming with more innovative ways of providing cloud and related services to the clients.
Another most vulnerable issue in information technology was “security”; there has been constant news of companies’ server/data getting hacked. Cloud computing has put a stop to that. One of the reasons the cloud is gaining so much popularity is “security”. Cloud computing provides various products and services without compromising security. In fact, secure services are one of the major selling points of cloud computing.
Cloud computing has been in the scene for quite some time but it’s only recently that corporate and big giants have started realizing the potential of cloud computing. It has indeed proved to be the game changer and will continue to do so in the future. Advanced Machine Learning, AI, and Big Data Analytics will continue to create their mark but all these technologies will need cloud computing to be executed properly.
Cloud also presents a tremendous opportunity for professionals to build their career in the ever-expanding world of cloud. If you have ever thought of or thinking of making a career in cloud computing, this is the best time. Start-ups are on the rise, new start-ups are coming up every day across the world and big IT companies have either moved or are in the process of moving to the cloud and this is creating millions of opportunities for cloud professionals.
