Hear from our interviewers at CloudFest 2018: market trend predictions

CloudFest was a seven-day event that anyone who wants to keep ahead in internet innovation should not have missed. But just in case you weren’t lucky enough to be amongst the 7,000 plus attendees at this spectacular and informative gathering, we’ve put together some choice quotes you’ll undoubtedly find of interest.

“We are currently at the beginning of the next wave, so, infrastructure-as-a-service, as a Cloud offering is commodity right now,” said Thomas Fischer, Principal IT Architect at the Noris Network. “You have the hyperscalers, you have middle to small companies that have private Cloud products, and the next wave, I guess, is containers…We have currently Kubernetes topping number one in the container orchestration space. And every platform-as-a-service also provides a Kubernetes-based platform. And I guess that’s the hot topic for the future.”

The main trend in Cloud computing, according to David Jardin, Security Team Lead at Joomla, “is complex problems getting easier,” adding that there could be a downside to this as “my main fear is that we aren’t able to keep up with security in that area, because security is something complex and something hard to hide behind just one button.”

So how could Cloud impact your business?

“Everybody wants to move into the Cloud, but everybody also has legacy IT,” said Thomas Fischer. “So, in modern IT an outsourcing company also has to support both worlds. On the one hand, legacy IT, enterprise IT, and on the other hand, native Cloud services.”

One of the major Systems Integrators in Germany and Central Europe is Cancom, with Simon Russin as its Senior Manager Public Cloud. “Cloud is our central strategy, basically, so we see our services as an IT Cloud Solutions Provider,” said Simon, explaining that they offer different types of Cloud solution “starting from on-premise solution, hosting solution, but also different types of public Cloud solution to our marketplace.”

“Right from the beginning, Cloud was a topic for us,” said David Jardin, referring to Joomla’s web-based system, because “it makes it even easier for our customers, for our end users, to set up a website really, really fast, get going and get them the result that they are looking for without needing too much help. And being able to scale up that solution at the end of the day.”
