Optimization and the future of cloud computing

At our aim is to save you time and money. In order to do this effectively, we must stay up to date with the latest trends in cloud computing and related fields, such as IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service).

The current trends in cloud computing all point to optimization, not just to creating new capabilities and services to add to the already enormous service offering. Using cloud computing is expensive, so it makes sense to manage how much of this service you use and for how long. It is an advantage to be able to “turn off” your cloud computing service when it’s not in use. Think of it as being similar to energy management in your home.


How do you optimize something as complex as cloud computing services?

 Firstly, it is important to note that cloud services are still growing. According to Gartner, it is estimated that the cloud market will increase by 17% year-on-year from 2018 to 2019. IDC states that cloud-based spending accounted for nearly half of all IT spending and that this number could grow to 60% of IT infrastructure and as much as 70% of all software spending by 2020. With this spending forecast in mind, it stands to reason that the costs involved should be optimized in order to make sound business sense.


Recent Trends

Businesses are constantly seeking ways to cust costs, streamline processes and increase profits. Here cloud computing has revolutionalised the way business run their day-to-dayactivities and store confidential data.  It has also improved the agility of businesses to roll out new products faster and respond to market trends.

The number of cloud solutions has increased dramatically in recent year. This occurred alongside the development of new technologies, such as Blockchain, Quantum Computing, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Here, companies able to offer IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) and PaaS (Platform as a Service) will offer an astonishing array of services in order to increase their bottom line. This would benefit consumers, since the fierce competition would drive down prices, rendering these services far more affordable.


Effect on Computing Optimization

As the use of containers in cloud computing are becoming mainstream, business are able to whittle down their day-to-day resources to a bare-metals approach, only using what they need, when they need it. This allows for much faster development and deployment of applications, which would further reduce the company’s cloud costs.


Hybrid and Multi Cloud

In an effort to decrease costs and increase competition, consumers are increasingly using a strategy where multiple cloud service providers (CSP) are employed. This complicates cloud management, since each CSP has its own native tools that aren’t necessarily multi-cloud.

The benefit of using a hybrid or multi-cloud approach is that consumers aren’t tied to a specific vendor. Furthermore, they are able to reap the benefits offered by various suppliers, using each CSP for specific areas of their business. This increases flexibility and spreads the workload in the most cost-effective manner.



Managed services are on the rise. As businesses are constantly streamlining processes, it makes sense to outsource areas such as cloud management, IT, security services and data center services, to name a few. This allows businesses to focus their resources on primary business operations, further increasing efficiency and productivity while continuing to decrease costs.


Eyes to the Future

Cloud capabilities will continue to evolve and change as time goes on. The focus of CloudSnooze will be to leverage each new development to their advantage, offering the best possible service to their clients.
