    When we published our selection of cloud predictions last year, most predicted container orchestrator Kubernetes to consolidate its stranglehold over the container space and, correspondingly, modern cloud infrastructure.

    Last November, one of the most extensive customer surveys bore this prediction out. In its study of thousands of companies, cloud and infrastructure monitoring company Datadog found 45 percent of its customers were using Kubernetes. And if that wasn't evidence enough, just reflect on VMware's announcement in March that it plans to transition its enterprise virtualisation platform to a system that runs and runs on Kubernetes. In reality, Kubernetes' centrality to cloud was put beyond doubt just four weeks after we published last year's roundup. In January, IBM steamrollered into 2019 with a $34 billion acquisition of Red Hat that saw the company's popular Kubernetes implementation OpenShift integrated into IBM's new multi-cloud strategy.

    It is in this context that most of this year's experts consulted their cloud crystal balls. Rackspace's Lee James predicts 2020 to be a year of stiff competition between enterprise IT giants jostling to deliver a Kubernetes solution that dovetails with customers' multi-cloud goals. On the other hand, Stephan Fabel of Canonical says end-users will start to understand the limitations of Kubernetes, and accordingly, utilise it more strategically. Lastly, Pivotal's Michael Cote expects companies to use this experience to establish a singular, overall Kubernetes strategy.

    Mid-December is upon us, which means it’s time for – you guessed it – our yearly data centre predictions roundup.

    As usual, we’ve handpicked four industry experts, all of whom have kindly consulted their crystal balls to serve up some digestible summaries of what lies ahead for the data centre in 2020.

    Without question, the chief takeaway from this year’s roundup is the centrality of sustainability.

    True, the environmental impact of IT has been scrutinised for several years now, but whereas once the interrogation was audible, now it is deafening. This is a consequence of the broader elevation of the issue around the globe, reinforced by the Greta Effect and the hellish wildfires that tore through the Amazon in November.

    We’ve all heard of the boogie man that steals children in the night-time. It’s been giving kids nightmares for years. Now, we have something that will give their parents a scare during the next few weeks. It’s the Grinch-bot and it’s quietly stealing presents in the build-up to Christmas.

    During the golden quarter, the period encompassing Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas and the New Year sales, the Grinch-= bot is proving to be a real party-pooper.

    CTO, Arrow
  • "The show is good, we were here last year and we’ve definitely been busier on our stand than we were. It’s been a good morning so far, it’s important for us to get across, not just our technology, but the company as a whole and we’re meeting with lots of different people from lots of different verticals so this is key. We’re already talking about about booking a stand for next year."
    Regional Sales Director UK & Ireland, Telit
  • "We were looking for return on investment on our stand and activities at Smart IoT, so we set our targets of how many strong contacts we needed to make at the show. The teams at Closerstill Media and KTN really got behind us and we exceeded our targets."
    CEO, SmartWorld Connect
  • "It’s our first time at the show – we’ve found it very illuminating – to see what the industry is doing and to see how fast the industry is moving. It’s enabled us to promote into new areas, into new people. And, still enabled us to have that understanding from the customer base of where Siemens is, and what we do and how we fit into the world of digitisation"
    Business Director Data Services- Siemens
