Cloud computing is all about centralization i.e. the ability to push servers and workloads that run on expensive on-premise facilities to more affordable systems on clouds. This in turn allows businesses to share resources with other tenants to increase the overall efficiency by reducing costs. Centralization facilitates a single location for data that may have once existed in many enterprise silos. Moreover, it allows users to manage processes and systems centrally with a single set of tools.
Despite all the positives of centralization, the cloud is likely to shift to a distributed approach (decentralization) over the next decade. Centralization can be termed as the Phase 1 of the Cloud Computing era while decentralization is the Phase 2. It focuses on moving the data processing back to the consumers of those processes and data. So, the Phase 2 has recreated the notion of client/server computing, with the cloud being the server and workloads excluding their applications or data moving back to the clients.
This shift is not necessarily a complete change, as the workload will move closer to those who use them, while remaining centrally managed and controlled. In spite of being executed across a widely distributed architecture, they will remain logically centralized whether or not their processing and bits are physically distributed.
The cloud platform automates the distribution of workloads on private cloud instances, which are paired closely with the centralized public clouds. While it may seem like the workloads are residing in the public cloud, they are actually deployed in a hybrid-like distributed architecture. Cloud computing technology enforces flexibility to such a surprising extent. Ironically, once we move to a centralized cloud-based architecture, all possibilities are open including putting the workloads back on-premises, minus the silos.
