Emerging Technologies Enabled by the Cloud

Cloud ComputingData StorageFile System

Technology has advanced considerably. Our lives have been radically changed by technology. Technology has given us far more than we can utilize with the daily addition of new features and upgrades. Cloud computing is a significant shift brought about by technology in our lives. It has fundamentally altered how business is conducted.

To use cloud computing effectively, there have been several technological advancements made. In the process, these technologies are revolutionizing not only the cloud computing environment but also the whole computer industry.

It was the ground-breaking new technology that would revolutionize computing as we knew it when cloud computing first made headlines, and boy did it create waves! The cloud has changed from the leading edge of new technology to the new technology itself. Without cloud computing as the enabler, emerging technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and the internet of things (IoT) would not be feasible. Cloud computing makes these new technologies viable because they need massive amounts of data and lightning-fast processing speeds on demand.

Here we will learn about the new emerging technologies enabled by the Cloud −

Home Automation

Home automation technology constantly expands its versatility by introducing contemporary features to meet people's rising needs. The creation and deployment of a new home automation system that takes advantage of cloud computing as a service. The cloud server handles and controls user data, information, and appliance status. The hardware interface module interfaces with the sensors and actuators to deliver physical service. The Home Server is in charge of configuring the devices and providing the user interface. The online services are deployed via the cloud, which is mostly required for data security and availability.

Serverless Computing

Serverless computing addressed these problems by managing important maintenance and scaling demands for businesses, allowing them to focus on other critical operations in their cloud service providers' systems.

The trend for pay-as-you-go and pay-for-use computing models has taken up serverless computing, addressing the bulk of software load. This function-as-a-service paradigm allowed cloud systems to run more quickly and effectively.

The "serverless" cloud computing application execution paradigm offloads to cloud service providers and tools all responsibility for ordinary infrastructure management operations such as scaling, scheduling, patching, provisioning, and so on. Furthermore, it allows developers to focus their time and attention on the specific business logic for their apps or processes. They don't require any infrastructure to administer or operate.


Blockchain is distributed database that stores data electronically in blocks and then uses cryptography to establish a chain of these data blocks. Blockchain blocks are essentially information containers that hold encrypted and stored data. Blockchain applications in cloud computing are connected to the Cloud of Things (CoT), a hybrid cloud computing and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Blockchain may be used for secure network management in blockchain-based cloud computing by hosting blockchain network as Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) in a cloud environment. BaaS enables IoT applications by providing blockchain-enabled services such as smart contract services, user transaction verification, and cloud blockchain storage.

Augmented Reality Cloud

Augmented reality digitally augments the world around the user when seen through a phone or other digital viewing device. AR filters are available on social media sites such as Snapchat and Instagram. An AR Cloud is a digital 3D representation of the actual world. An AR cloud's objective is to allow for the ongoing sharing of AR experiences across various devices. It will give data and services directly relevant to the user's actual surroundings. Consider the following scenario: a user walks into a spa. In such instances, consumers may use their AR glasses or smartphone to check out its reviews and a list of services offered, therapists available, and other information about the firm.

An AR Cloud is a scalable and shared point cloud that recognizes the geometry and forms of the actual world. It is an instant, universal localizer that works from any angle on numerous devices simultaneously. It gives multi-user interaction in real-time, even with faraway users.

Machine Learning

Machine Learning assists users in making predictions and developing algorithms that can learn independently from past data. However, various machine learning algorithms, such as SVM, Linear Regression, Logistic Regression, Decision Tree, Nave Bayes, K-Means, Random Forest, Gradient Boosting algorithms, and so on, require massive amounts of storage, making it difficult for data scientists and machine learning professionals to work with. In such cases, cloud computing becomes a game changer for implementing machine learning models. Cloud computing aids in the enhancement and expansion of machine learning applications. Intelligent Cloud refers to the integration of machine learning with cloud computing.

Cloud operates on the premise of "pay for what you need." The Cloud's pay-per-use approach is ideal for businesses who want to use ML capabilities without incurring high costs. It lets you deal with machine learning functions without requiring strong data science knowledge. It makes it easier for us to experiment with different ML technologies and scales up when projects go into production and demand grows.

Final Thoughts

Since industrialization, and even before that, technology has advanced and influenced our lives. The aforementioned technologies are required to develop and use robots, chatbots, and a variety of other activities, including the realization of Human Intelligence. Investing in these top developing technologies now will improve your firm, provide security, and provide a roadmap for the future of cloud computing.
