Top 20 Cloud Companies - 2017
Considering the growing acceptance of cloud migration across large and small enterprises, it is a given that cloud computing is here to stay. The security aspect alone is enough to convince large enterprises and SMBs alike that cloud computing paradigms offer ironclad protection to mission-critical data. In addition to the bread and butter features of unlimited storage and scalability, cheap upfront payments, and ease of deployment, the cloud also adds value to up-and-coming networking technologies. Container technology is one such example, where the cloud can catalyze viable means for initiating and deploying micro-services as well as applications.
A powerful synergy is envisioned in the convergence of machine learning with cloud computing, both deriving from the other to help organizations develop a competitive edge across verticals. On the other hand, serverless computing is on the rise with its ability to automatically execute code snippets upon request, thereby easing the burden on developers.
What’s more, most companies are now on the run to leverage multi-cloud strategies while moving toward a ‘lift and shift’ framework, by which they can select and combine optimal services from multiple providers. As hybrid cloud continues to gain more limelight, enterprises are steadily gravitating toward Cloud Monitoring as a Service (CMaaS) to keep track of performance across multiple suppliers. With major players tapping into cloud services, the technology is transforming the face of business.
