Multi-cloud consumption and adoption are on the rise as businesses find new ways to optimize their operations and improve efficiencies. Organizations are moving away from a single provider model and towards a multi-cloud approach, using multiple cloud providers to meet specific needs. In a 2021 VMware study, 73% of VMware customers already use two or more clouds, and 81% of enterprises expect to be multi-cloud by 2024.1 This approach allows businesses to take advantage of the unique features and benefits of each cloud platform, while avoiding vendor lock-in.
Here are just a few of the benefits to moving to a multiple cloud approach:
- Performance enhancements. With mission-critical apps as the driving force, organizations need to ensure optimized network connections across many cloud providers. Creating a resilient, multi-cloud platform is critical to ensure superior application response time and a more robust user experience.
- Speed and agility. With the need for faster time to value and a better digital experience for end users, application developers and operators are tasked with building and scaling enterprise-grade applications quickly. With the right multi-cloud infrastructure, leveraging technologies from various cloud providers allows for building the best and innovative applications.
Although there are many benefits, multi-cloud does offer a level of complexity for operations teams when managing multiple cloud properties. Ensuring staff is properly trained can increase operator effectiveness and productivity as well as ensure your staff’s ability to move to a multi-cloud world.
