The cost of a single hour of downtime can be very high. We all have become accustomed to being always-on, where tolerance to downtimes has changed dramatically in this hyper-connected world. All this has been made possible by the power of Cloud.
Cloud computing is giving organizations unprecedented levels of agility, scalability, reliability, and above all, resilience by leveraging highly automated and scalable computer resources – self-provisioned, metered and on-demand! This is helping drive innovation in areas we have never seen before. Areas that demand always-on across hybrid environments, multi-clouds, supercloud/metacloud and the world of sky computing.
The Why: Per IDC there are 33 Zettabytes of data in the world and expected to grow to 175 Zettabytes by 2025. A lot of this will be newly generated data coming from all sorts of sources and in various forms like videos, documents, images etc. Trillions of IoT sensors generating high volume of high-frequency data that we can apply machine learning and AI to automate (AIOps), drive cost efficiency and provide new revenue opportunities. There is need for this data to be processed near real-time leveraging the power of the Cloud where a single hour of downtime can cost organizations hundreds of millions of dollars. We need to pay attention to the skills required to exercise the true potential of the Cloud and a mindset shift towards building a resilient design to enable availability of data when we want it and where we want it.
