Top Cloud Computing Trends In 2019

Advertisements are peppered with the wonders of software “in the cloud.” Commercials are speaking the wonders of big data and analytics. They talk of the innovation in volumes, but what exactly is “the cloud?”

In simple terms, cloud computing is the use of powerful remote servers to access files, house databases, and share software. It is a computer that can be accessed from a local machine via the internet. Its benefits include access to powerful machines, not having to install costly hardware, and costing that fits your use case.

Cloud is scalable, robust, and cost-efficient. We are just beginning to witness the evolution of this concept into a revolution. Cloud computing changes the way we think about data, the way businesses think about their operations, and the way engineers think about building.

Latest Cloud Computing Trends 2019

Cloud computers are here to stay and here are the latest trends which need to be followed:

1. Serverless Computing

Part of the evolution in cloud computing has seen the rise in popularity of serverless computing.

In early cloud development, servers were rented by server space that was predetermined. Any overage or underage resulted in waste at the expense of the company who rented it.

In comes a serverless model, which features a common structure that employs a “pay-as-you-go” structure. These plans are more flexible and allow companies to have more control over their expense on cloud hosting.

With companies like Amazon and their AWS model, this structure will continue to trend upward.

2. Hybrid Cloud

The hybrid cloud concept provides additional flexibilities to companies that maintain their cloud-based system. The “hybrid” definition stems from the use of both public and private cloud within one architecture.

Companies can manage their private cloud for sensitive applications and data, and use the public cloud for other computing tasks.

The benefits of this system allow custom scalability when demand requires it, but not before. Any spike in resources and the public cloud can increase its output to accommodate it.

Security is also a benefit as companies do not need to house all their sensitive data in a public server. They can keep it in house, guarded by their security features. With more and more companies using their enterprise mobile infrastructure it is vital that a cloud system support it.

3. Kubernetes

Creation of Google, Kubernetes have gained steam in recent years. Kubernetes are cloud technology used to manage container-based systems.

It is an open source, Linux-based, platform that clusters groups of containers and provides management for the cluster. These clusters can cover public, private, and hybrid clouds.

With the rise of container-based architecture, tools like Kubernetes will become more and more prominent as the years go by.

4. Career Growth

The cloud explosion has opened the door to substantial career growth in computer science. Demand is growing at an accelerated pace. While the career is difficult to break in to, the median salary of a cloud computing professional hit $146,350 in 2018

There is a wide range of jobs available in this sector, each with many responsibilities. You can find jobs like:

  • Cloud Engineer
  • Cloud Architect
  • Cloud Application Developer
  • Cloud Administrator

Those with skills in technologies like AWS, Java, and Microsoft Azure have a tremendous outlook moving forward in 2019.

5. Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence

For all these cloud-based trends, perhaps none is more trendy or life-changing than Artificial Intelligence (AI).

The gravity of AI is far beyond one simple article. The biggest companies in the world are leading the charge in the utilization of this technology. Countless hours and learning spent on developing this concept.

Artificial Intelligence, the concept of computers algorithmically solving problems using data, is centrally reliant on cloud computing. The datasets are too vast for simple computing solutions. The models scale too large; cloud computing systems are vital to this technology.

What’s Next?

Machine learning, deep learning, big data analytics; all generated with the power of cloud computing. In 2019 and beyond, we can only expect to see these technologies grow exponentially as we unlock their power.

Cloud computing is here to stay. It’s laid the groundwork for new technologies, new careers, and a new world.

Rigaku Presents Latest X-ray Analytical Instrumentation at AAPG 2019

Rigaku MiniFlex benchtop X-ray diffraction (XRD) instrument

X-ray analytical instrument manufacturer Rigaku Corporation is pleased to announce its attendance at the American Association of Petroleum Geologists 2019 Annual Convention Exhibition

X-ray analytical instrument manufacturer Rigaku Corporation is pleased to announce its attendance at the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) 2019 Annual Convention Exhibition (ACE), taking place at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas 19-22 May 2019. The event is hosted by the AAPG and its divisions, along with the Society for Sedimentary Geology (SEPM), the Austin Geological Society and the South Texas Geological Society.

Founded over a century ago, AAPG remains at the forefront of the petroleum geoscience. ACE 2019 – the Association’s flagship event – features a juried technical program, state-of-the-art technology displays and networking activities and is expected to attract a global a global audience of 7,500 professionals from more than 72 countries.

X-ray analytical techniques are established methods for geological research and elemental analysis of petroleum and petrochemicals. X-ray fluorescence (XRF) is employed to characterize the elemental composition of geological materials, and X-ray diffraction (XRD) is used to quantitatively measure phase composition. Rigaku provides a variety of unique solutions for these determinations and is presenting their latest X-ray analytical technology at booth 1224.

Featured at the event is the sixth generation Rigaku MiniFlex benchtop X-ray diffraction instrument, a multipurpose analytical instrument that can perform qualitative and quantitative analysis of polycrystalline materials. The latest MiniFlex™ X-ray diffractometer is the newest addition to MiniFlex series of benchtop X-ray diffraction analyzers from Rigaku, which began with the introduction of the original MiniFlex system in 1973.

Amazon Web Services pulls out the stops to speed you to the cloud

Sponsored Cloud computing brings a host of benefits, from the ability to respond quickly to market dynamics to scalability and flexible cost structures. Little wonder that it is becoming an increasingly attractive option for enterprises of all sizes.

The most popular and convenient choice of cloud platform for many companies considering a move away from on-premises IT infrastructure is longstanding market leader AWS Cloud.

Now the company is aiming to spread the message even further of what AWS Cloud can bring to businesses, explaining the platform’s wide range of advantages, and offering detailed advice right here on how to accelerate your move to the cloud.

The big drawback of on-premises systems is that they pile up workarounds and quick fixes that save time in the short term but restrict the business’s ability to innovate and make changes.

AWS shines a bright light on how its cloud platform can cut the business loose from cumbersome legacy systems and supercharge its transformation. Escaping inefficient workloads and reducing disruption at every change frees time for imaginative IT teams to pursue new projects and create value for the business.

Many companies find that a good place to start on their path to the AWS Cloud is with any of these three widely used apps: SAP, VMware, and Microsoft. As a longstanding SAP partner, AWS promises to get SAP workloads up safely and reduce its cost of ownership.

For enterprises reluctant to move virtual machines from the data centre to the cloud, VMware Cloud on AWS provides a seamless solution. AWS also runs hundreds of thousands of Microsoft workloads covering every Microsoft application.

Moving to AWS also means you can start using cutting edge technology such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and automation without having to find the time and expertise to build them yourself.

Find out how AWS aims to ease the migration path of cloud newcomers through the support of its professional services team, its training programmes for companies internal IT staff, and technology advice from its global spread of partners.

The company has also set up an AWS Migration Acceleration Program that includes a methodology for implementing legacy migrations and a set of automation tools to simplify them.
