How Cloud Computing Will Evolve in 2021 and Beyond


February 25

About the Event

Over the past decade, and especially the last year, organizations began to shift their technology infrastructures from on premises to the cloud because it brings economies of scale, efficiency of rapid deployment, and elasticity to adjust compute power appropriate to demand, all of which equate to cost savings and a more nimble business model. Initial applications included storage and backup, test/dev, big data analytics, and IaaS, but more recently there has been an explosion of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications that offer off-the-shelf business functionality centrally hosted in the cloud, accessed from anywhere, anytime. But is the cloud the end-all and be-all of computing architectures? Join this in-depth discussion to hear insights on the state of cloud computing, including:


  • The rise of Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) as the leading SaaS category
  • Emerging architectures, like distributed cloud, to enable edge computing
  • The advantages of NoSQL in a globally distributed environment
  • The benefits of leveraging containerized workloads and services with Kubernetes
