Cloud 2019 Predictions (Part 3)
Deployments to public cloud infrastructure will accelerate over the next year, adding to a pressing need to make migrations more efficient and reliable. Enterprise hybrid clouds need standardized deployments and application workflows. For example, cloud storage should be deployed so that it looks like local storage and users can’t tell the difference. Enabling this requires a layer of abstraction. Compute, networking, and storage need to work seamlessly together in hybrid deployments — watch for and contribute to software-defined storage standards development in 2019.
