It just turned 2019 and people are still saying the cloud is “just someone else’s computers.”
Excuse me, I lost sight of my keyboard because my eyes were rolling too hard.
Fortunately, that antediluvian attitude is disappearing from IT departments. What’s bringing that about, according to a recent survey (pdf) from open-source Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) foundation Cloud Foundry, is that people are actually using the cloud.
You see, it’s not the business goals of saving money or cultural reasons of wanting to embrace the newest technologies. Instead, “cloud adoption is a virtuous cycle—the more companies adopt and then familiarize themselves with cloud technologies, the more they continue to adopt. As companies witness the immediate benefit of using the cloud, they expand their usage.”
