Continuing from Part 1 of this blog post, here are the three remaining trends for 2022:
Cloud hosting providers will continue to offer a la carte pricing to allow companies to purchase only the level of service they need, but most web hosting providers will also offer packages incorporating the most popular cloud computing services. Scheduled backups and upgrades, virtual private server arrangements and full-scale infrastructure environments will be available in custom packages designed to suit the needs of business. These customized cloud environments will provide even more choices and more scalability for corporate customers.

Disaster recovery services
Cloud computing systems will become more durable and reliable than ever in 2022. Many web hosting providers are already offering disaster recovery services in the cloud environment. These new services promise faster recovery and reduced disruptions to ongoing operations for companies affected by major environmental events. Many companies will opt for these services and the relatively cheap insurance they offer against prolonged service interruptions caused by tornadoes, earthquakes, floods and hurricanes.
Optimizing the cloud
With storage space at a premium in the cloud environment, the need to optimize, compress and reduce the amount of data stored on the cloud will become increasingly important from a cost standpoint. Cloud hosting providers will offer some optimization services, but experts expect to see more focus from local IT departments and independent firms on optimizing data to reduce storage costs in the cloud computing environment.
Web hosting providers will continue to expand their cloud services to include these new trends and better serve the needs of their customers. Overall, 2022 is expected to see increased adoption of cloud computing services and an added focus on security, optimization and disaster recovery plans. These changes should make cloud computing an even more appealing choice for modern businesses.
