A multi-cloud strategy refers to how you might deploy and/or manage several cloud services and platforms based on your particular business and technology needs. Typically, it also means having multiple vendors in your cloud environment, which has innate complexities.
It’s important to consider your business needs and your vendor options carefully so that you can plan a successful multi-cloud strategy and gain a competitive advantage.
There are three popular business reasons for investing in multiple cloud platforms: The ability to use best-of-breed services that fit your particular needs, the freedom to choose the best fitting vendor teams, and the insurance against cloud failure.
Proven benefits of implementing a multi-cloud strategy include:
• Reducing downtime
• Increasing flexibility and efficiency
