The public cloud is a cloud service offered by a vendor to multiple clients. When a company chooses to use various public clouds to run different services, this is called a multi-cloud strategy.
Multi-cloud management represents the techniques and tools used to secure and optimize a multi-cloud deployment. Multi-cloud management is challenging because every cloud provider has different features and tools for managing their cloud. Additionally, all the clouds must be connected and secured.
A multi-cloud shouldn’t be confused with a hybrid cloud. A hybrid cloud also involves multiple clouds, but the term refers to a combination of two types of infrastructure: public cloud, private cloud, and/or on-premises. A multi-cloud, on the other hand, includes multiple public clouds, from different providers. Multi-cloud can be part of a hybrid cloud, but it is also possible to have a multi-cloud without a hybrid cloud.
Even though managing a multi-cloud environment is very complex, a quality multi-cloud management platform offers numerous benefits:
Cloud management tools allow companies to manage their multi-cloud resources. These tools can be deployed on-premises or as a SaaS product, and serve multiple purposes like security, analytics, resource management, and compliance. When choosing a multi-cloud management tool, it’s important to remember a few things.
While these issues are serious, they can be avoided by carefully defining and designing the multi-cloud deployment strategy. After selecting the right management tool, your organizational efficiency will increase significantly.
