Busting Three Key Fallacies About Multi-Cloud Computing

The IT industry is currently faced with a significant conundrum when it comes to a multi-cloud environment. Numerous IT companies are now voluntarily seeking multi-cloud infrastructure automation and management, despite persistent pushback from significant cloud suppliers that backed industry monopolization.

Although multi-cloud increases an organization’s efficiency, agility, and scalability, enterprises may have inevitable trade-offs. Unfortunately, several half-truths and myths concerning multi-cloud have become widely accepted due to the rising dominance of cloud solutions in workplaces. Here are a few multi-cloud fallacies that need to be dispelled.

Most businesses depend on a single cloud provider— Not really; however, be aware of the reasons enterprises require a multi-cloud strategy

Businesses have realized that utilizing a single cloud infrastructure provider for all of their workloads and apps is not the best course of action. According to a Gartner study on public cloud customers, 81% of businesses reported working with two or more providers. To use the best-of-breed technologies, the majority of firms have diversified their multi-cloud approach. The most excellent option for addressing company demands is to have a selection of many cloud providers. According to the report, business purchasers should select several cloud service providers for hybrid deployment and a different cloud service provider to manage workloads in order to minimize constraints.

Large enterprises are resorting to developing a multi-cloud strategy to increase agility and decrease vendor lock-in, cost, and flexibility. Reliance on a single cloud provider is not a prudent move, given how quickly cloud technology is growing. Organizations can optimize with the speed, agility, and security they require by using a multi-cloud strategy that prioritizes application development and workloads where each performs best.

Vendor lock-in may be resolved through multi-cloud

In order for an organization to completely employ the best-of-breed solutions, it is necessary to differentiate the containers based on the cloud environment. Businesses may explicitly create a portable and accessible container between multiple clouds. It is implied that the workloads might not be simple to move to different clouds. Thus, enterprises risk blocking the vendor lock-in paradigm by entering into a multi-cloud lock-in. Multi-cloud designs sometimes need a single administration platform, raising the risk of platform lock-in. Although cloud-native is a step toward reducing lock-in, the risk still exists.

Complexity of several clouds overcomes advantages. Can cloud visibility streamline business processes?

As businesses are migrating more workloads to the cloud, often dispersed across numerous clouds, the complexity of multi-cloud designs will undoubtedly rise in the future. There will be additional clouds at edge locations, more cloud services from 5G telecom providers, and a stronger emphasis on spending and security. The tool sets that providers normally offer can only be used within their own cloud, which poses a considerable barrier to managing numerous clouds. As a result, managing many clouds simultaneously requires multiple teams, decreasing efficiency and raising cost and complexity.

These complexities may be solved and turned into opportunities by maintaining consistency with visibility across clouds at the infrastructure and management levels. It may help companies achieve a competitive edge in today’s dynamic market while helping them quickly develop and sketch out well-considered strategies. It seems to make sense that corporate leaders would like to increase uniformity throughout their settings using public clouds.
