FREMONT, CA: The wave of cloud migration has made enterprises and cloud computing inseparable. Cloud has taken over the role of the single most important running factor of an enterprise - improving the efficiency of the operations. Both established SMEs and startups are leveraging the benefits of the cloud. This large-scale transformation and realignment of companies, while migrating to the cloud, arise two fundamental questions; how much cloud is appropriate for a business? And, what process should an enterprise follow to adopt various cloud solutions to optimize efficiency?

Besides these two questions, enterprises should also figure out how to deploy workloads, and where, in case using a hybrid system. While making such choices, the factors affecting those choices must be carefully charted out. That gives a clear picture of how a particular choice will benefit the enterprise. These choices by classification, however, seem to revolve around multi-cloud.

Hence, at this point, the principle of multiple-cloud is introduced. It's an innovative approach to cloud computing application that is revolutionizing operations in the enterprise environment.

Multi-Cloud Computing

The strategic application of cloud computing, where different cloud providers provide different solutions on a user's demand to address different business operations and technical requirements, is known as multi-cloud computing. The definition also aligns with the description of cloud-native that seeks solutions from various microservices assembled together.

Benefits of Multi-Cloud Computing

The definition above itself speaks about the benefits of multi-cloud computing. With multi-cloud computing services, companies can keep operating their businesses even if one of the clouds goes offline or is shut down temporarily. Most importantly, these solutions are customizable; hence companies have the option to select what works best in order to achieve optimal efficiency.

As the data is disintegrated and stored on the various clouds of the different providers under multi-cloud, enterprises have an easy way out of vendor lock-in. This becomes critical for only some sensitive businesses like those in the gambling sector. The security precautions offered by multi-cloud platforms are matchless and are far above the scope of single cloud deployment. Multi-cloud also eliminates any chances of shadow IT activity and allows enterprises to bypass the harsh gravities like DDoS attack. Moreover, multi-cloud also provides protection from some emerging threats like that of Cryptocurrencies by keeping the transaction anonymous.
