Cisco Predicts That Storage On Clients Devices Will Soon Become Obsolete
Cisco sees cloud storage to take on the internet world in the near future.
Cisco Systems Corporation believes that the coming generation will rely only on cloud computing and cloud storage. As per the networking giant, the PC era will soon become obsolete in the upcoming times. The hardcore PC user might want to rethink where to save data and important documents from now on to enhance their skills portfolio. Cisco forecast predicted that by 2019 users will not be storing any data on their devices but will be using the cloud storage for that process.
The cloud storage is on a high and it could not be stopped by any means. More and more users whether professionals, students, employees, or anyone do have a cloud storage account and save their data there in order to reuse it remotely. Cisco stated, “Most of the more than 500 zetta bytes that will be generated by 2019 will be ephemeral in nature and will neither be saved nor stored. “The cloud storage gives you a major benefit by letting you access any of your saved files or document on any computer which has a working internet. This has made lives easier and the hassle to carry external hard drives or USB flash drives.
Not even the failure of Safe Harbor or CISA election can put a stop to the rising cloud traffic these days. It is believed that global users that will register for cloud storage will be tripled in the coming years. The GCI report for 2014-2019 suggests that more than 73 percent of user’s data was stored on clients’ devices initially. Cisco Systems has predicted that majority of the stored data (at least 50 percent or more) that was stored on clients ‘devices will move to a cloud storage by the end of 2019.
The register reported, “Those working on the private cloud would also be wise to have a think about their career direction – where their work doesn't surround virtualization anyway, although that gap is set to narrow – with a mere 16 per cent of growth predicted there compared to a whopping 44 per cent compound annual growth in public cloud workloads.” To be precise, more than 507.5 Zeta byte data will move to cloud storage by 2019.
There is no doubt in the fact that cloud computing has changed the way users save files and documents. And it is expected that virtualization will keep on dominating the internet world and the private cloud world in the near future.
