More is more – harness the power of multi-cloud

Cloud is not a singular solution. With several vendors in the marketplace, each offering different capabilities and benefits, as well as options to use applications such as Software-as-a-service (SaaS), there are plenty of considerations when deciding which cloud solution to choose. The good news is you don’t have to choose just one – you can have the best of all worlds by building a multi-cloud strategy. A well thought-out approach to multi-cloud can improve reliability, give you more flexibility to migrate whilst avoiding cloud lock-in, and enable you to reduce costs by mixing and matching the most attractive options from each vendor.

Putting your eggs in different baskets

One of the most compelling reasons for businesses to choose multi-cloud is the flexibility this strategy offers and the ability to tap into best-of-breed solutions. Working with different providers, means services and data can be hosted where it makes most sense – whether that be for data sovereignty, security, economics, or performance. Likewise, modern applications are cloud native and are ready to span multiple clouds and consume services from different providers.

Stay in control of your clouds

As with any infrastructure strategy, the key to success is understanding what you need and what you have – and monitoring and managing every part. With multiple clouds, this can be more complex – governance especially can challenge operational and cost control.
