Five Evolutions of Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing is essentially the automation of IT service provisioning through software which replace human tasks. It is currently evolving in multiple directions. Free Software and Open Hardware will eventually lead to massive price cuts compared to current price levels in USA or Asia. Edge Computing will reduce the need of data centres whenever network latency or availability become critical. Service Workers will eliminate the need of servers, both at the edge or at the data centre, in 90% cases. Big Servers will eventually replace smaller servers as the standard fabric the data centre.
