Global spending on cloud infrastructure services topped $50 billion quarterly for the first time in Q4 2021. In annual terms, they grew by 34% and reached $53.5 billion. Such data are given in the Canalys report.

According to analysts, the migration of more workloads to the cloud and the development of cloud applications as part of digital transformation projects have led to an increase in demand for cloud services. In addition, pandemic-related factors such as remote work and learning, e-commerce, gaming, and content streaming remained important growth drivers. New use cases are emerging, such as the metaverse, that will drive future demand and the need for more powerful, distributed, intelligent, and scalable services with lower latency. At the same time, leading cloud service providers are best suited to provide the infrastructure. Unsurprisingly, market leaders including AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud posted 45% combined growth.

For the full year 2021, total spending on cloud infrastructure services grew 35% to $191.7 billion, up from $142.0 billion in 2020.

You can lose your photos Apple is closing the free

Apple has announced the imminent end of support for the service My Photo Stream (My photo stream). This means users will have to upgrade to iCloud Photos to store photos until the service’s shutdown date.

You can lose your photos: Apple is closing the free My Photo Stream service

Apple plans to end support for My Photo Stream on July 26, 2023. A month before the full shutdown, Apple will prohibit uploading new photos from devices to My Photo Stream. The company explained:

Photos uploaded to the service before this date (June 26) will be stored in iCloud for 30 days from the date of upload and will be available on any of your devices with My Photo Stream turned on. On July 26, 2023, iCloud photos will be deleted and the service will be discontinued.

Original photos stored in the device memory will not be affected and will not be deleted. However, if access to the device with the originals is lost, then it is better to take care of saving photos from My Photo Stream in advance.

Apple also clarified:

Going forward, iCloud Photos will be the best way to securely store your photos and videos in iCloud and keep them in sync across all your devices.

US will not tolerate Chinese ban on Micron chips and

The United States “will not tolerate” a de facto Chinese ban on the purchase of Micron Technology memory chips by Chinese companies and is working closely with allies to combat such “economic coercion,” U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo said.

Raimondo told a press conference following a meeting of trade ministers as part of US-led Indo-Pacific Economic Plan talks that the US “strongly opposes” China’s move against Micron.

These actions are targeted at one American company without any factual basis and we see this as simple and simple economic coercion and we will not tolerate it and do not think that this initiative will be successful.

US 'will not tolerate' Chinese ban on Micron chips and 'strongly oppose' such action

The Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) said on May 21 that the products of US memory chip maker Micron have not passed security checks. Therefore, key infrastructure operators are prohibited from purchasing products from this company.

Raimondo added that “the move comes a day after the leaders of the G7 industrialized democracies agreed to new initiatives to counter Chinese economic coercion.”

As we spoke at the G7, and as we have repeatedly stated, we are working closely with partners who are tackling this particular issue and all the issues related to China’s non-market practices.
