The teeming second tier
The appeal that light-weight, speedy, small cloud hosts hold for individual or small-group developers will continue unabated in 2015.

While enterprise-to-cloud surged in 2014 (notwithstanding security concerns), many small market cloud-hosts experienced a steep upslope of new customers and revenue, as well.

The might of AWS, Google and Microsoft should act as a high tide that will raise all cloud-hosting boats. With that said, because the market is so diverse and global, and because pockets of that market remain avowed against the big hitters,  smaller cloud-hosts will continue to carve out market share.

Charles' acknowledged trend of developers starting on a smaller host and then migrating to one of the "Biggies" will gain momentum; however, it's been Linode's experience that by offering steady, reliable, powerful servers and responsive customer service, by launching products that take advantage of emerging cloud innovation, and by re-investing capital into infrastructure, smaller cloud hosts can and will continue to gain a share of the market.

The market - and pundit predictions - give us no reason to believe otherwise in 2015.

Continuous Delivery - enterprise style
Purists hate when anyone puts a qualifier on these trends -- "enterprise" devops, agile, continuous delivery. But the reality of highly regulated, high-availability businesses is that they'll only embrace these trends if they fit the corporate compliance needs. So while I agree with the sentiment that continuous delivery will be more in demand, and that companies will move this direction, I suspect it will be a more conservative version than what the likes of Netflix deploys.
