Today, we will see the top five Cloud Computing trends that are gaining popularity in 2020. As you know there are many things that can be talked about however, I will keep this post short for you to have a quick read. Cloud computing is nothing but a group of servers that are based on a remote location. These are the data centers that provide on-demand availability of computer system resources like data storage and computing power.
So, here are some of the cloud computing trends that you must be aware of this year.
1. Microsoft and Google Gaining Traction
During the 2010s cloud was defined by rivalry amongst hyper-scale providers. In particular AWS, Azure and Google Cloud. The biggest example is the Jedi contract. A 10 Billion dollar contract offered by the US Department of defense that Microsoft won after fierce competition. Although Amazon has dominated the public cloud sector, Microsoft’s market share has been increasing over the years. While Google Anthos announced in April of 2019 will allow users to manage apps at AWS and Azure. Indicating the gap between the big cloud players is shrinking.
2. Disaster Recovery as a service
Service outages and natural disasters pose a serious risk to cloud users leading to a higher demand for disaster recovery as a service. The business research company predicts that the DRaaS market will reach 11.7 billion by 2020. To whether a cloud provider delivers DRaaS natively or through third-party integrations. It needs to maintain high availability while also ensuring that the data still meets the requirements of data compliance such as GDPR, general data protection regulation, or CCPA, California consumer privacy act.

3. Edge Computing
For some organizations that cloud simply isn’t powerful enough to handle their real-time data analysis and processing needs. Edge computing is a distributed model where information is processed closer to its source addresses this issue. The edge is often talked about in relation to data from Internet Of Things devices. Grand View Research predicts the computing market will hit over 28 billion by 2025. This is as it gains traction among large scale enterprises looking for big data solutions.
4. Automated and Intelligent Cloud Security
Incidents like the July 2019 Capital 1 data breach have placed a critical emphasis on vendors and users to secure their cloud environments. In 2020, we expect to see more automated cloud security tools and services driven by artificial intelligence and machine learning. These solutions will deliver more actionable insights into security events and allow users to prevent cloud disasters before they happen.
5. Multi Cloud Evolution
Traditionally, hyper-scale cloud providers have sort to differentiate their services by covering niche use cases and filling themselves off from each other. However, an increasing focus on services that enable multi-cloud deployments such as google anthos and containerization indicates that the tide is changing. A “Gartner survey” revealed that 81% of public cloud users were working with two or more providers. So, vendors will need to develop solutions that address the rising multi-cloud needs among enterprise customers.
