What Was Hot in Cloud in 2014 and Cloud Predictions for 2015

What Was Hot in Cloud in 2014 and Cloud Predictions for 2015 | Cloud News | Scoop.it

As we wrap up 2014, it’s time we took a look at some of the biggest cloud technologies that made an impact over the course of the year and thought about cloud predictions for 2015. I’m most likely not going to list all of the technologies that were big this year, so if you feel I missed something, feel free to add it in the comments section!

InterCloud's insight:
APIs (cloud apps). This has been a big one. Platforms from VMware, OpenStack, CloudStack, Eucalyptus, and Amazon are all creating easier ways to connect via the cloud. APIs are creating intelligent infrastructure cross-connects to reduce the amount of resources required. APIs at the software and hardware layer will continue to make cloud communication easier on an application and infrastructure level.Software-Defined Everything (SDx). We’re really taking off with this whole virtualization concept. Software-defined platforms really do revolve around specific components virtualization. This can be storage, networking, security, or even a data center platform. With technologies like SDN, we’re able to create intricately connected data centers capable of greater resiliency and business continuity.The Hybrid Cloud. There is going to be a lot of blurring when it comes to cloud model definitions. The future of the cloud will pretty much see everyone adopt some type of hybrid cloud platform. Why? Firstly, most organizations are already in the cloud. Secondly, there are a lot of new options in terms of connecting a private cloud with some cloud resources. More companies are moving just a part of their environment into various cloud options. The reason it’ll all start to blur together is the management framework is evolving. New cloud management solutions aim to control your cloud regardless of the platform. Hybrid, public, private and even community clouds can all be controlled from a single console.Mobility. Forget about devices. The fad around mobility being defined around the device is over. Now, mobility revolves around the delivery of applications, workloads and data to an ever-mobile user. This can be to any device. In the future, the goal will be to deliver the best possible user experience regardless of the device. Here’s something we all need to come to terms with: the age of the PC, as we know, is coming to a close. In fact, this is being written from a Surface Pro. And a keyboard. Look for a much more mobile user, and a much more mobile data layer.Data, security, and compliance. This was going to have to change. Even big regulations like SOX, PCI/DSS and HIPAA are making technology adjustments. The recent Omnibus Rule as a modification to HIPAA can actually allow you to store data for collaboration in the cloud. Solutions like Citrix Sharefile Cloud for Healthcare jumped all over this, signed a business associate agreement (BAA), and can now process protected healthcare information (PHI) directly from the cloud.

A SysAdmin's worst nightmare

A SysAdmin's worst nightmare | Cloud News | Scoop.it
A long time ago in a galaxy far far away, lived a bunch of human beings known as “SysAdmins”. Those creatures used to do everything by hand: every piece of infrastructure was deployed manually (Servers, ELB, Network topology, Databases, etc.). Then the cloud happened. It caused chaos, because of which many SysAdmins took a vacation forever. The remaining ones had to change their attitude and that was the birth of “DevOps”.

BGP leak causing Internet outages in Japan and beyond. | BGPmon

BGP leak causing Internet outages in Japan and beyond. | BGPmon | Cloud News | Scoop.it
InterCloud's insight:

Last Friday, Google created a disturbance in Japan’s Internet flow. How did it happen and why ?

 

Google announced new destinations to its partners, but Google is not a transit operator and was not prepared for the traffic to pass through: it automatically rejected it, resulting in a total blackout.

 

This is the perfect example that we cannot automatically trust the announcements of new destinations, and this raises the question of the importance of intermediate platforms.

This story details us how a single BGP error from Mountain View turned into a massive confusion with Japanese traffic from NTT and KDDI.
