Today we conclude our Consider the Cloud blog series with a quick recap and links to the entire series.
In Part 1 we took a look at the growth of cloud computing and examined the benefits that contribute to its phenomenal growth rate.
In Part 2 we reviewed some of the many hyperbolic claims predicting that cloud computing will take over the world… and hinted at our skepticism about that.
Part 3 delved deeper into the reasoning behind our skeptical take, explaining why the cloud won’t be completely taking over everything any time soon.
In Part 4 we talked about data gravity, and how this concept could also contribute to a lower uptake of cloud computing than many pundits believe.
And finally, Part 5 introduces what we believe the future will entail… hybrid multicloud computing.
Cloud computing is here to stay as a vital and viable component of the IT infrastructure. You should learn it, adopt it, and adapt your computing environment to include the cloud. But temper any irrational exuberance you hear… the cloud won’t replace all on-premises computing now, or any time in the near future.
