The Gartner Top Strategic Technical Trends for 2021 report suggests that the distributed cloud model will emerge to address the explosion of data growth, particularly at the network edge.
Distributed clouds can be seen as an inevitable consequence of the hybrid cloud deployment model that incorporates public cloud, private cloud, and cloud stacks at the network edge, and provides seamless integration of resources, data, and analytics across multi-cloud boundaries, orchestrated from a single control plane.
Data warehouse platforms will have to evolve to meet those requirements. Managed from a single control plane, they will enable analytic applications to be provisioned at the point of need on a right-sized blend of physical and virtualized infrastructure, based on data gravity, data sovereignty, data governance, and latency requirements.
