Running a small business has never been easy, but today’s cloud computing trends are simplifying the entire process. Cloud infrastructure, with support from companies offering complete managed IT services, promises to reduce operating costs while increasing scalability and security. According to Findstack, at the end of 2021, 67% of all enterprise infrastructure was cloud-based. As we move through 2022, these are the cloud trends that could impact small businesses.

Serverless Computing

As businesses grow, one of the most important and complex elements of data security and maintenance is server management. In the past, virtually all growing businesses would eventually need their own servers and IT staff to manage them. Serverless computing is growing in popularity in 2022 thanks to advances in cloud computing. Some of the benefits of IT service companies provide through serverless computing include unlimited scalability, reduced latency, and reduced operating costs.

Cloud Security Awareness

One of the downsides of cloud computing is that sensitive data is stored offsite. The public cloud is particularly vulnerable to cybersecurity threats. Even if employers do not use cloud infrastructure, many employees turn to public cloud applications to simplify their workflow. With cloud computing entering the business environment on several fronts, more organizations are turning their attention to cloud security. In 2022 and beyond, expect to see calls for unified cloud security functionality and increased regulatory compliance across cloud applications.

Hybrid and Multi-Cloud Environments

Small businesses can benefit from public, private, and hybrid cloud environments as they strive to find the right balance between security and flexibility. Public cloud environments can streamline business-client communication and private environments can keep data more secure. Different teams can use different cloud applications, depending on the type of data they manage and their workflow. In 2022, hybrid and multi-cloud environments managed by IT companies can be completely customized to meet your unique organizational objectives. Here at American Technology Specialists, we offer full coverage cybersecurity protection solutions to easily manage hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
