Today, among all other IT fields, cloud computing is among the fastest-growing technology. Many organizations have already shifted their data on the cloud and more and more companies are shifting theirs too. Cloud computing is undoubtedly a buzzword for organizations today. Since it has opened doors to exciting, fast, and more secure opportunities for companies to uplift their business strategies and give a healthy competition in global markets to their competitors as well. Recent research done by IDC suggested that in 2019, about 50% of IT spending will be done on the cloud. Also, this spending will further escalate to 60% in the year 2020 which is huge.

All these implications have made it clear that the cloud is a trend which is here to stay. Being an IT organization or any company that deals with a huge pile of data, ignoring or looking overcloud will not be a good decision. So, let’s talk about how cloud computing is further going to expand in the year 2019 and some exciting cloud computing trends in early 2020.

Serverless Computing

Serverless Computing is becoming increasingly popular among other cloud trends and will keep on doing as such in 2020 as well. It is a methodology used by Cloud clients, who seek a PaaS i.e. Platform as a Service container, and the provider charges for the PaaS as needed. The client does not have to purchase or lease benefits previously and doesn’t have to design them. In serverless computing, the Cloud provides the platform and also sets it up along with a wide scope of accommodating tools to design applications and work with information.

Hybrid Cloud Solutions

Another biggest cloud computing trend is the use of hybrid cloud solutions. Hybrid Cloud ha already gain popularity and will further gain dominance in 2020. Now, every organization who wants to get the age on the cloud should consider hybrid cloud solutions. Since using the public cloud is not a good choice especially if you are dealing with sensitive data. Also, shifting of data to the public cloud is also a time taking the task. So, with a Hybrid Cloud solution, companies will be able to mix the on-premises infrastructure with private cloud and open cloud services. Hence, the shifting of data will become easier, flexible, and more effective as organizations will be to plan their own pace.


Other than the Hybrid cloud, Multi-Cloud is another big cloud evolution. Multi-Cloud lets users run and control an application, data, and workload using any of the three cloud solutions i.e. hybrid, private, and public. They can choose the option depending on the technical requirements. This implies that an organization can have multi-clouds of any type linked together or work separately again depending on the requirement.

Edge computing

With edge computing, you can execute the processing of data at the network’s edge while streamlining cloud computing. Edge computing is basically the outcome of the popularity and usage of IoT devices. With edge, you will get real-time analysis and analytics since it is important for edge to execute real-time services to streamline the IoT devices traffic flow. Hence, it is trending in 2019 2019 and will stay in trend in 2020 and beyond.

Data Containers

In 2019, we have already seen the ease and convenience in the usage of data containers. These containers have become increasingly popular for their capability of transferring data, storage, and organization of virtual objects, as well as assuring the execution and processing of the software during data transfer. However, there is one drawback of data containers, that they only work on servers having kernels as its Operating system.

Backup and Disaster Recovery

Backup and disaster recovery are the most important aspects of working on the cloud. Around 15% of the budget is dedicated to backup and disaster recovery solutions which is a huge amount. Therefore, companies choose bigger names when investing in cloud services like Azure, AWS, and Google Cloud. All these cloud providers have Backup and Disaster Recovery solutions that guarantee the security of the infrastructure. On the other hand, the users are responsible to protect their data.

AI Platforms

The use of AI to process Big Data is one of the more significant updates in gathering business knowledge data and giving a prevalent cognizance of how business capacities. AI platform bolsters a quicker, progressively compelling, and increasingly effective way to deal with work together with data researchers and other colleagues. It can decrease costs in an assortment of ways, for example, making basic assignments computerized, avoiding the duplication of exertion, and assuming control over some costly work errands, for example, replicating or extraction of data.

Cloud Security

As we see the ascent in innovation, security is clearly another genuine thought. With the presentation of the GDPR, security concerns have ascended a lot higher and are the fundamental thing to care for. Numerous organizations are moving to cloud processing with no genuine thought of its security consistence conventions. Along these lines, GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) will be something imperative in 2019 and the association must guarantee that their data practices are both sheltered and consistent.


Seeing all the current and coming trends, cloud computing is itself the biggest technology trend. Therefore, organizations have already shifted majorly to clouds and other companies are also advised to do so. It is also suggested that companies should enroll their employees in cloud computing training and certification to make them use these solutions more efficiently. Today, with cloud, companies are able to store gigantic data without affecting the servers, secure the data, and make the process of collaborating easier. Cloud computing has also changed the workflow of small businesses and help the owners in decision making. Lastly, cloud technology is all about streamlining workflow and providing convenience to make businesses become more efficient, flexible, successful, and productive. So, if you really want to take your business to new heights without worrying about security and data size, you must cloud computing.
