As 2020 comes to an end, it is clear that cloud computing has played a vital role in how we work. Remote working has become par for the course and more people and businesses than ever before have made the move to the cloud. Cloud-based tools have come a long way – even in the last year. Unlike traditional server-based systems, the cloud has opened up ways for employees to work smarter, from any location and any device. How will cloud computing look in 2021, though, and what impact will this have? Let’s have a look.

Cloud Computing in 2021

There are two major ways that cloud computing will lead us into 2021. These include:

Post-pandemic cloud adoption.

Those businesses that have not yet made the move are very likely to use the cloud as part of their COVID-19 recovery strategies. Stability has become essential over the course of the year, with a strong need to find systems that are agile and designed to meet the move to remote work. Having secure systems in place to make remote work possible is vital and with that in mind, cloud-based tools such as Microsoft will become more in demand. Trusted enterprise-level tools will navigate challenges and allow for stronger networks and greater mobility, allowing employees to continue working remotely without the risks it previously posed.

Hybrid cloud solutions.

For businesses wanting to get the benefit of the cloud without making a complete move that requires extensive changes to current systems, hybrid cloud solutions are going to become more prevalent. Many businesses have battled to choose between private and public environments. Hybrid solutions offer more flexibility, and the best of both environments, allowing on-premise infrastructure to integrate with cloud tools. The cloud is not meant to be a one-size-fits-all system and having more flexibility allows the move to be far easier for those making the migration. .
