Multi-Cloud entails the use of two or more cloud computing systems at the same time. It is about blending or mixing the best solutions and services from diverse cloud service vendors to obtain the best, suitable solution for business problems. The ability to possess the required environment, facilities or even skill set needed to effectively float a functioning multi-cloud computing system is known as Multi-Cloud Infrastructure. This is mainly adopted by progressive organizations who cannot afford to be frustrated operation wise as it is widely known that single cloud systems have its severe shortcomings which could hamper the growth of the business. Multi-cloud infrastructures support and strengthen organization of this sort to share large volumes of their workload across multiple cloud environments. This, they do for production and service delivery as they perfectly downplay the risks associated with single cloud systems. Such risks are very grave ranging from data centre issues, cloud outages, vendor lock-in and bandwidth issues that could cost you your customers and your businesses at large if not addressed properly.
The need for the multi-cloud infrastructure to be adopted by business organizations cannot be overemphasized for the following reasons:
Multi-cloud infrastructure allows organizations to maintain unique, hybrid cloud environment that enables it to save money and not compromise its security. For example, business operators while using multi-cloud systems may decide to float sensitive work operations in private cloud while the normal, casual data are placed in cheap domains of public cloud networks.
With multi-cloud infrastructure, the organization is independent and enabled to blend different cloud vendors and platforms such that their work operations are not entirely trapped in individual cloud providers. Switching of vendors is made easier, simplified and much more automated since the workloads are distributed across various platforms. This is the beauty of using multi-cloud systems as it gives freedom; freedom in operations, freedom to run various app without being bothered about the underlying infrastructure which is very common while using a single cloud systems.
When data and apps are stored at distant locations across a cloud network, retrievals always lead to delay. This delay due to distant locations of the servers is eliminated when multi-cloud infrastructure are adopted. This is because, in multi-cloud system, the data center can retrieve data with minimum delay. this ability makes this system useful for a global organization that needs to serve and distribute corporate data distant geographical locations.
As businesses get bigger, there is a need for clouds driving the business to expand as well in order to match the size and magnitude of work operations. Multi-cloud system gives businesses the space required to match your needs with the cloud that you find ideal for such operation.
Multi-cloud infrastructure eliminates the need for multiple data centers and multiple servers which is the very core of modern cloud services. Although multi-cloud systems are not without its cost, risk and complexities, its benefits as regards the need to monitor networks within a network with tools that are efficient, increases visibility and overall performance outweighs the demerits.
