Ⅳ.The future evolution
Based on the benefits of cloud computing, many organizations operate in the cloud to take advantage of the scalability and flexibility that these environments provide. Gartner, research company, predicts that as more and more organizations move their business to the cloud, 80% of enterprises will no longer run their on-premises data centers by 2025.
However , a new trend has emerged in this bold prediction from the Gartner company, which is “Cloud repatriation” .A survey by IDC found that 20% of IT decision makers expressed a desire to return their cloud run business to a locally deployed data center, with 43% of IT decision makers hoping to migrate to a local private cloud, and 37% of IT decision makers It will migrate its business to a hosted private cloud.
So why not use the public cloud? Many companies are reclaiming their investment in cloud computing because they don’t have the expertise to effectively manage public cloud services such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services. When recovering, moving, or accessing their information, many companies were surprised to find that their costs grew exponentially, causing the budget to quickly get out of control, and the cost of disaster recovery became much higher than expected.
Although analysts have different opinions, Oussama El-Hilali, vice president of products at Arcserve, shared his predictions on how companies will enter and apply cloud computing environments in the coming years.
Cloud computing operations manager came into being
Poorly managed cloud migrations indicate that some internal IT teams typically do not have the expertise (or ask the right questions) when migrating their data, workloads, and applications to a public cloud environment. Therefore ,the operation manager who’s responsibility is to running the platform will be in short supply. especially for companies that insist on their own opinions and double investment in the public cloud. However, do not expect these roles can quickly close the technological gap, especially in the case of continuing shortage of IT skills.
Enterprises move to private clouds for greater predictability
In a recent global survey of 759 IT decision makers by Arcserve, 47% of respondents said that reducing operational costs for backup and recovery is increasingly important for organizations. As a result, many organizations may consider to build a private cloud for disaster recovery. These models allow organizations to take advantage of cloud computing, but do not need to pay for recovering, accessing, and moving data that typically comes with public cloud subscriptions.
Hybrid environment alternatives
Arcserve’s survey also found that 45% of respondents plan to deploy cloud backups for some or most of their data, which means they are looking to leverage cloud computing technology, at the same time, they are still deploying data centers internally to store data. In essence, these companies are not eager to move their business to the cloud. Instead, just because they move the data to the cloud computing environment, while they think it makes the most sense, to better manage and predict the budget.
Internal deployment system that use to overcome network latency
Today’s consumers want a high level of service, which means that for most businesses, instant access to data is required. As a result, Among the IT decision makers who report the formal recovery plan, More than one third of them said their goal is to recover from the interruption of IT in a short time, so that their customers would not be affected by the interruption.
Education and training
Regardless of the cloud computing environment your business chooses, you need to make informed decisions to ensure that their data is still accessible. Defining the organization’s critical data, the speed of access and recovery, and the most meaningful place to store information is not a process that should be easy. Realizing this requires time, expertise and cross-departmental collaboration. Careful attention to details can help IT teams develop the most meaningful cloud backup and disaster recovery strategies for their business.
Cloud migration will continue
The organization will invest more time and resources in these projects in 2019, especially since the continuity of business operations depends on IT facilities. In any case, the company’s business will continue to migrate to the cloud, but most companies will certainly not to deploy 100% cloud-based strategy.in just six years. Therefore, although Gartner predicts that the data center is about to die, however, in the next few years, people may see a wide range of mixed environments.
