2015 – Cloud Computing’s Final Enemy Has Fallen

For many years, distrust in cloud computing’s capacity was creating a lot of

competitors for this service. But finally, they have all been beaten down.

Ten years ago, cloud computing was officially presented by Amazon. Since then, a

silent revolution has been sown. Slowly, people have recognized how powerful a tool

cloud computing is. But now, in 2015, that revolution has finally begun.

Personal Cloud – it seems to be a great idea

Although cloud computing has expanded very quickly, many people are still in doubt

about it. They think it’s not available for everyone.They believe that, for security reasons, it can’t be used by

governments or by any corporation. In spite of its high speed rates, these large companies need

something more, so the Personal Cloud was born.

Well, it may be a stupid name, but these traditional corporations really like its

functions. Instead of using Amazon, now they can have the same service in their

own server. Their engineers can quickly access the Cloud, and they have found it to

be very reliable for their secret information.

... But not really

Adam Jacob, CTO at Chef, a software company in Seattle, can finally access his

client’s Personal Cloud. And he realized it was not that great. Jacob said: “Personal

Cloud is almost at zero now. It takes a lot of time and difficulty to make. Also, this

software that were bought to run it is not so good”. So more and more people are

changing to using Public Cloud instead of Private Cloud because of the advantage in

the running cost.

Of course, these companies are still running a lot of projects in their Private Cloud,

and one of the reasons is that they signed a long-term contract to use these Clouds.

However, 2015 has become an important year for cloud computing because people

have realized its necessity.

Cloud Computing is required

John Cymer, Forrester’s analyst, said: “The acceptance of cloud computing in these

companies, where it makes the most profit, is going to be a lot faster.” He also said:

“It’s a big change; the cloud is coming and it is fate.”

Thanks to Amazon Web Service, the Cloud is becoming more secure than ever

before, thanks to its highly experienced engineers. According to Mr. Watters, ten

years after establishing the assessment report, the cloud has become “a societal

standard” and “a safety gamble.” The government is starting to use cloud computing

now, even the CIA.

A trend that’s hard to miss

It can no longer be denied that the Cloud is a great idea. If you don’t believe it, just

check Amazon's accounting balance sheet: Amazon Web Service has been earning

4.6 billion dollars per year. This number could increase to 7 billion, and is still

increasing this year. But in closing, we must note again that the Personal Cloud is

not as great as it seems to be.
