After the extensive review of the history of cloud computing over the last two decades, it is time to shift our gaze from the past into the future. In this post, we will examine and predict where the industry is heading in 2020 and beyond.
On behalf of everyone at Turbonomic, we hope our customers, partners, employees, and community had a wonderful International Women’s Day! Every day, we are inspired by the grit and compassion that our women colleagues lead with. International Women’s Day (IWD) is an opportunity to not only show appreciation for the incredible women in our lives, but also shed light on the work that still needs to be done to achieve gender equality.
As is the case with many new technologies, “observability” can take on different meanings depending on who you’re talking to. In conversations with customers, analysts, and reading what’s online, we’ve seen and heard a few definitions.
Most customers I come across who already run containerized applications are dealing with the complexities of managing multiple resources needed for their environments. I find that there are 2 types of challenges:
In the first article in this blog series, we covered the emergence of cloud computing during the 2000s decade:
In this second part of our series, we will examine the exponential growth the cloud computing field experienced during the 2010s decade.
At Cisco Live Europe, Cisco announced Intersight Workload Optimizer. Cisco Intersight Workload Optimizer is a new offering that enables customers to assure application performance from on-premises (UCS, HyperFlex & 3rd party infrastructure) to cloud (AWS, Azure). Cisco Intersight Workload Optimizer is the integration between Cisco Intersight and Cisco Workload Optimization Manager (CWOM).

As we enter a new decade, we decided to take a look back at the history of cloud computing and how the space has evolved from the early 2000s to today.
This article is the first part of a blog series. This article will cover the 2000s decade (2000-2009), which marked the emergence of the cloud computing space.
The modern Cloud computing space enabled many of the innovative technologies and solutions we have seen over the last two decades.
Technically, concepts of cloud computing can be traced back to the 1960s - but to me, the origin story of the modern cloud computing can be attributed to Salesforce.com, which was founded in 1999 and later launched one of the first successful public Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offerings.
As cloud computing gained momentum during the mid-2000s, many organizations struggled to understand what exactly 'Cloud Computing' is. A memorable example is when Larry Ellison, the founder and CEO of Oracle Corporation at the time, shared his thoughts in 2008 on Cloud Computing (a must listen). While Larry Ellison’s provocative comments highlight his lack of understanding of cloud computing at the time, most people were in the same boat and did not fully realize its benefits yet either.
One of the contributors for the confusion was the common practice of ‘Cloudwashing,' where vendors took their legacy software solutions, made them accessible over the internet and marketed them as cloud solutions.
Assuring application performance to enable a seamless customer experience is at the forefront of organizations’ application transformation initiatives. To deliver on customer expectations, organizations are using containers and other cloud native technologies to reap benefits like agility and faster time-to-market – but with that comes complexity and high rates of change on a scale that teams are struggling to manage.
