If the IEEE Computer Society analysts just see, the coming year will be marked by significant declines in the cost of cloud computing services, and improved performance. With the increasing adoption of technology containers and virtualization network functions, cloud computing will grow rapidly.
technology containers and virtualization network functions are among nine main technological trends identified by the IEEE. The containers phenomenon is particularly interesting for companies migrating applications to the cloud, observe the IEEE analysts. “Containers are a smarter way and more economical to operate this migration,” they said. “They enable companies to develop and deliver applications faster and more efficiently.”
Lenny Pruss investor in enterprise computing, expressed it perfectly there not so long ago: the containers such as Docker “gather application logic and all its dependencies, operating as an isolated process, and run the same way in any environment. This creates parity between development and production. Developers may decompose and confidently apps into separate blocks, knowing they will run the same way until the end of their production through the tests. ”
A clean implementation and smoothly applications
For end users, containers promise to speed up the loading of applications. For IT professionals, they mean a clean and trouble-free implementation of applications. “Containers provide the necessary computer resources to run an application as if it was the only application running on the operating system; in other words, with the guarantee of an absence of conflict with other containers of applications running on the same machine, “explain the analysts IEEE.
However, the containers have a great impact in the enterprise, security must be absolute. “Even if the containers can provide many benefits, the decisive factor is safety, which must be improved to make the promise a reality containers,” adds the IEEE, which nonetheless notes that it “expects that the containers become ready for the company in 2016. ”
The NFV still paralyzed by the security problems
Virtualization of networking features (NFV) is another trend which will see a growth in the coming year and that can bring down even the costs of cloud computing. For now, the adoption of the NFV is crippled by limitations in security technology and therefore is not widely offered by telecommunications companies. “The NFV is an emerging technology that provides a virtualized infrastructure upon which the next generation of cloud computing services,” says IEEE
“With the NFV, cloud services will be provided to users significantly reduced prices and convenience and reliability by telecommunications companies as part of their standard communication services. ” The IEEE expects that NFV is finally starting to become popular in 2016.
No trend is independent
The other areas of technology that will define the year future include 5G, non-volatile memory, allowing storage of data cheaper and lower power consumption, data science and advanced machine learning.
The report of the IEEE noted that no trend is independent, but they are all intertwined, feeding each other. In the words of Dejan Milojicic, former president of the IEEE Computer Society: “All the trends are related to each other, many of them dependent on progress in other technologies to advance the cloud needs. virtualization of network functions, 5G needs the cloud, the containers can not flourish without progress in security, all based on the science of data, etc. “.
If such trends that corporate and NFV containers are gaining ground, consumers like the cloud computing service providers will see the difference in cost and delivery speed.
