Innovations keep on pouring in cloud computing. Fueled by an ever-expanding market, the cloud is witnessing significant growth and adoption rates continue flourishing. Forecasts and research clearly hint at a paradigm shift for enterprise cloud in 2019. Gartner estimates that the worldwide public cloud market is expected to grow 17.3 % reaching around $206.2 billion in 2019. At the forefront of cloud adoption stands enterprises, big or small, as they embark on digital transformation journeys. With it sprang a complete reversal, from the cloud as a server platform to being the very heart of enterprise IT systems integrating a host of capabilities. In fact, LogicMonitor in one of their surveys identifies digital transformation as the key factor driving public cloud engagement. Moreover, the survey also forecasts that 41 percent of all enterprise workloads will run on public cloud platforms by 2020.
