Distributed Cloud is going to be a big revolution in the IT world. It is ideal for dynamic and well-managed business operations. With the rapid increase of data-driven technologies like AI, IoT, 5G, the apps and data (with their supporting infrastructure) are also increasing across various edge sites and multiple clouds.
Cloud evolution has led to the birth of two unique and dynamic trends:
- The cloudifying of the edge
- The evolution of true multi-cloud
Distributed Cloud, a more dynamic and radical phenomenon is a result of these evolving trends.
Let’s get deep and understand:
Cloudifying The Edge
Cloud services are pervasive. Nowadays, a new and modern generation of cloud-native apps is emerging.
The compute and storage cloud resources must move closer to the edge of the network to overcome latency, security issues, and improve the Quality of Experience (QoE). This closer approach is called Edge Computing. It will enable enterprises to deploy, support, and connect to a specific application securely and in real-time.
Edge Cloud Benefits:
- Fleet-wide management of distributed apps and data
- Integrated storage, networking, and security for distributed edge areas
- Reliable, effective, and high-performance global connectivity across edge sites
- Globally distributed control plane
- Kubernetes APIs for application orchestration
- Multi-layer security for workloads and data
Multi-Cloud Over Multiple Cloud
Several organizations claim to be multi-cloud providers these days, but in actuality, they are only utilizing individual and multiple clouds. Also, they are paying to multiple cloud providers. Such enterprises run each app on a single cloud provider.
But the multi-cloud approach is different. It embraces the strengths of every cloud provider and enables its users to leverage the specialties of each cloud. Multi-cloud empowers enterprises to support microservices seamlessly and effectively. It also offers better availability and flexibility for each app.
Additional of Multi-Cloud Benefits:
- Avoid lock-ins with one specific vendor
- Maximum opportunity to optimize costs and performance
- Higher agility and resilience
- Improved network and security performance
- Better risk management
Looking Forward: The Distributed Cloud
The Distributed Cloud Market is forecast to reach $3.9 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 24.1%
The Distributed cloud is a modern and unique approach in the IT world. It has a geographically dispersed infrastructure that primarily runs services at the network edge. The distributed cloud will empower enterprises to manage and control various components. These components include edge apps, apps spread across multiple clouds, and different legacy data center apps.
The distributed cloud is however a slow approach. But it holds great potential to lower the latency and risk concerns in the cloud infrastructure.
