Cloud computing is helping individuals and organizations to get work done more efficiently. As spending on cloud computing services continues to grow, it’s slowly eating away at other forms of traditional enterprise IT. Whether it’s called cloud computing or on-demand computing, software as a service, or the Internet as platform, the common element is a shift in the geography of computation. When one creates a document or a spreadsheet, major components of the software reside on unseen computers, whereabouts unknown, possibly scattered across continents. The shift from locally installed programs to cloud computing is just getting under way in earnest.

The elegance of Cloud Computing is that customers have to spend very little on infrastructure and they pay as they use. With a hybrid cloud, they can use their on-premises resources for normal workloads and ‘burst’ into the cloud for ‘spikes’, such as on ‘Black Friday’ or ‘Cyber Monday’. Early fears about security in the cloud have been allayed as even government intelligence agencies have embraced the cloud.

The overall public cloud services industry is expected to show a compound annual growth rate of 13.4 percent over the five years from 2016 to 2020. Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is estimated to be the fastest growing service, with the market increasing at a rate of 23.3 percent over the same period.
