The cloud computing industry is booming and showing no signs of slowing down. Today, 90% of large enterprises have adopted a multicloud infrastructure. Furthermore, by 2025, an eye-watering 200 ZB of data will be stored in the cloud. And Gartner predicts that in 2023, global public cloud spending will grow 20.7% to $591.8, up from $490.3 billion in 2022.
As 2023 gets under way, many people wonder what else we can expect from cloud computing in the coming year. So, let's get into it.
Bare Metal Computing Is On the Rise
Bare metal servers are becoming the buzzword of the day, and with good reason. These servers offer complete control over the physical machine, enhanced flexibility, and avoid shared infrastructure's "noisy neighbor" difficulties. Bare metal server adoption has been surging in recent years as more organizations discover the need for finely tuned hardware for specific data-intensive workloads.
Specifically, the demand for bare metal computing is growing as organizations become more interested in high-performance computing (HPC), Big Data analytics, and real-time data handling. We expect bare metal cloud deployments to grow further in 2023 as the demand for AI-powered applications and HPC increases.
Increased Investment in Cloud Security
While migrating to the cloud offers enormous opportunities and boosted efficiencies, it also introduces a range of cybersecurity threats. Additionally, governments worldwide are increasingly strengthening their regulations on how organizations must store and protect data, only complicating this process further.
As a result, in 2023, we will see more spending on cloud security, especially in the areas of AI-powered predictive systems designed to catch threats before they inflict damage on cloud environments.
Multicloud Strategies Will Surge
If 2022 was the year of hybrid cloud, then 2023 could very well be the year of multicloud. Businesses are increasingly seeing the advantages of opting for more than one cloud service from more than one cloud vendor, public or private. Adopting a multicloud approach enables organizations to access the best-in-class solutions for their specific business goals and objectives. A single cloud solution rarely meets all a business's needs, and companies are waking up to this fact.
AI and ML Will Become More Prominent
As we enter 2023, we will start to see more cloud providers relying on artificial intelligence and machine learning for a variety of value-adding tasks. For example, providers will leverage AI and ML to manage the vast, distributed networks needed to offer robust storage resources to their customers. In addition, AI and ML will be used to regulate power and cooling systems within datacenters and in powering cybersecurity solutions that safeguard customers' data.
Low and No Code Cloud Services
Low-code and no-code services are becoming increasingly popular, and rightly so. Not all organizations have the computing power or skilled IT workers to build compelling applications from scratch. As we move into 2023, we'll see more cloud service providers offering low-code and no-code solutions in the cloud. Users will be able to easily access these tools through SaaS models and start building their own software without coding experience.
