Gartner Says Four Trends are Shaping the Future of Cloud, Data Center and Edge Infrastructure - Some predictions about how organizations will do public cloud stuff, if you’re into Gartner predictions. Here is one on migrating apps to public cloud: ‘The focus of refactoring cloud infrastructure should be on optimizing costs by eliminating redundant, overbuilt or unused cloud infrastructure; building business resilience rather than service-level redundancy; using cloud infrastructure as a way to mitigate supply chain disruptions; and modernizing infrastructure. According to Gartner, 65% of application workloads will be optimal or ready for cloud delivery by 2027, up from 45% in 2022.’ // I don’t have access to the PDF, so I’m assuming this means that ~50% of workloads are not “read for cloud delivery” right now in 2023. Meaning…they run on traditional, on-premises VMs, bare metal, or mainframes. // As I did just there, I mostly use these predictions to get an estimate of the current state of things. Who know how things will be in 2027, but the analysis put into the more contemporary estimate is more usable.
