Cloud computing has evolved significantly since the term was coined back in 2006.
It started with moving physical servers from on-premise datacenter and co-location facilities to the virtual datacenter; and having applications accessed through the Internet without having to host any software. Over the last 10+ years, cloud software has matured into a viable solution for most enterprises.
Reliability, security and scalability is readily attainable in the cloud with proper implementation. Powerful solutions can also be developed by combining the capabilities offered by multiple cloud software providers. From real-time data processing, to artificial intelligence, we are moving into an era of smarter cloud solutions.
