Multi-cloud refers to a comprehensive IT environment, based on and distributed across multiple cloud computing services provided by different vendors. Typically, the multi-cloud architecture is comprised of services delivered by two or more public cloud providers, as well as multiple private clouds.
Multi-cloud combines the use of different types of services such as IaaS (infrastructure) PaaS (platform services) and SaaS (applications), which may come from different vendors, but in the end make for a common, coherent IT environment of a given enterprise.
There are several reasons why enterprises decide to host their IT solutions in a multi-cloud environment. The most important factors that make multi-cloud the right choice are:
Multi-cloud usually refers to the environment consisting of multiple cloud services (IaaS/PaaS/SaaS), while a hybrid cloud combines different models of the deployment of infrastructure (on-premises, data center, cloud, etc.)
That’s most likely the biggest challenge in using a multi-cloud environment.
Since multi-cloud is intended to work as a coherent environment where the resources come from different vendors, the integration and management of different assets is key for obtaining maximum efficiency and security of all systems and applications, and keeping the benefits coming from using the multi-cloud.
The management process starts at the design phase – considering the real needs of an enterprise, the legacy environment, and the benefits of using particular services from particular providers. Efficient management in the operation phase may also bring additional benefits, starting from the ongoing adaptation of the architecture to the changing offer of cloud providers and ensuring the ongoing maintenance of the environment’s availability and reliability, and smooth integration of services.
Multi-cloud management is a complex multi-level task that requires comprehensive knowledge and experience in all aspects of IT services including cloud computing, network management, security management, etc.
