Prior to the pandemic, the notion of hybrid work was foreign and in most cases was for the “exceptional situation”. There used to be a small group of remote workers who weren’t near the office, and the road-warriors who were rarely in the office. On average though, working in the office was the norm. Beginning in 2020, there were headlines, articles, research, and statistics on how hybrid work is here to stay.

Elastigroup predictive autoscaling uses a machine learning algorithm to accurately predict the CPU utilization pattern of your workloads and increase the number of instances based on the projected CPU utilization. Predictive autoscaling also helps in cases where your instances/applications take a lot of time to boot up. Predictive autoscaling can scale the instances in advance of the actual traffic and thus saving up to 30 minutes of startup time.

The world of consumption has changed to everything as a service. Be it the way we consume movies and music to our office productivity tools, personal data storage, health and wellness, even our day-to-day shopping experience for consumer goods. The evolution of technology played a huge role in this. People no longer download songs or movies, nor do we buy CDs and DVDs for our personal entertainment. Rather we are now in a world where OTT (Over the Top) has become the default.
