Technology continues to grow, and with the evolution of this technology, cloud computing must change and evolve with it. In this article, we will discuss how technological advances have had an impact on the development and implementation of cloud computing, focusing on several major influencers.
Open source software
There is a place for open-source software in cloud computing, in a number of different forms, but there is a combination of opinions on its use. People and organizations that support the use of open-source software can quote various advantages, including:
Lack of license fees and do not need to pay for updates / improvements
Use of open file formats
Open and accessible source code
Easy adoption and low obstacles for new users
New applications can be easily developed and integrated
Software that can be modified and distributed again
Avoid exclusive locking
Exclusive technology can often arise from the use of open source software – Cloud providers that use software such as Linux can adjust services by modifying the source code.
Without universal connectivity (universal access to the Internet), cloud computing will not be able to advance or advance. Fast, broadband network, available for all, allow cloud computing to serve and connect business, organizations and customers. Fortunately, the growth of Cloud Computing is supported by expansion of broadband connections throughout the ongoing world.
According to itfacts.biz:
“When the total number of broadband lines in the world passes 400 mln, estimates the topic of the point that in total in the 40 largest broadband countries in the world will grow from 393 million in late 2008 to 635 million in 2013”
Server virtualization has been quite developed so that it is no longer seen only as a cost cutting method. Now it is considered to allow greater flexibility in the use of resources and to allow cloud computing to grow. The main advantage of server virtualization is:
Additional servers can be quickly used
Costs and billing can work around use (also known as utility prices)
Alternative source support
Customers can be separated from the location of the physical server
Economic scale promotion
Server and data center allow application mobility
What virtualization is given, is a greater choice and flexibility for customers, and greater efficiency and reducing costs for cloud providers.
